A Fritatta is a wonderful egg dish! So simple to prepare and cook that it has become our favorite breakfast. Fritattas differ from omelets because instead of being stuffed with a filling, the ingredients are incorporated into the eggy goodness. First cooked in a cast iron skillet on the stove then popped under the broiler for a minute or two, breakfast will be ready in a snap! I can and do make Fritattas out of just about any leftover bits and pieces of vegetables and meats in my fridge. I may not have enough of any one item to be a serving, but when added to the Fritatta, all these bits become a delicious meal! Today’s recipe came about because I had one lonely ear of roasted corn in my refrigerator and I didn’t have the heart to throw it out. This dish came out so scrumptious, that I knew I had to share it with you all. I used a jarred roasted red pepper, but if you do not have one, simply leave it out or add some canned green chilies or maybe a bit of diced bell pepper. That’s the joy of Fritatta, you can switch out anything in the recipe for what you have on hand!
Here’s what we’ll need today.
Roasted Corn and Bacon Fritatta
- 4 large Eggs
- 3 slices bacon chopped
- 1 ear roasted corn cut from the cob
- 1/2 cup shredded Cheddar/Jack Cheese or just Cheddar
- 1/4 cup onion fine diced
- 1/4 cup Roasted Red Pepper from a jar and diced
- 1/2 tsp dried Thyme leaves
- 1/4 tsp Salt
- 1/8 tsp Pepper
- Chop the bacon and put it on to cook before starting the vegetables. When crisp, remove from heat, drain and set aside. Leave the bacon drippings in the skillet.
- While the bacon is cooking, dice the onion and roasted red pepper. Cut the corn from the cob and set aside.
- Add the onions to the bacon drippings in the skillet. Cook and stir until softened, about 3 minutes.
- Add the roasted red pepper, corn, thyme, salt and pepper to the skillet. Stir until combined and cook for about a minute.
- Stir in the cooked bacon bits.
- Whisk the eggs until well combined. Pour the eggs over the bacon and veggies in the skillet. Stir in the cheese. Cover and let cook over low heat for 5-7 minutes until starting to set on the top but still "wet." Turn heat off and get ready to broil.
- Place skillet under broiler and broil for 1-2 minutes until top is set and just starting to brown. Remove from broiler to a hot pad.
- Cut into fourths and serve. That's it! So delicious! Crunchy corn niblets and bacon with fabulous flavor from the onion, peppers and thyme. Just sublime!
