Cheesy Bacon Potato Frittata

Serves 6



4 slices bacon

2 cups (8 oz.) frozen hash brown potatoes, thawed

6 large eggs

1/4 cup milk

1/2 teaspoon salt

1 3/4 cups shredded cheddar cheese

1/2 bunch green onions, chopped

Sour cream, optional



Fry bacon in a 9-inch cast iron skillet over medium heat until crisp, 6-8 minutes. Remove bacon and set aside on a paper towel lined cutting board. If needed, scrape brown bits from pan with a metal spatula. Reserve 1 tablespoon of the drippings and coat bottom of pan. Add potatoes to skillet; cook 2 minutes, stirring occasionally. Preheat broiler.


Beat eggs in a medium bowl. Stir in milk, salt and 1 cup of cheese. (You can also add in any small-diced vegetables you like). Add egg mixture to skillet; stir to combine. Cover; simmer until eggs are set on the bottom, 6 to 8 minutes. (Center will be wet.)


Uncover; top with reserved half of the bacon, remaining cheese, then the rest of the bacon. Transfer skillet to broiler; broil 5 to 6 inches from heat for 2 to 3 minutes or until eggs are set and cheese is melted. Garnish with chopped green onions.


Cut into 6 wedges and serve with sour cream, if desired.
