Fabulous Frittata – Bacon, Blue Cheese, Mushroom, Pepper, Spring Onion

Been a bit manic today, a good clean through, it’s been a bit hot to do more than a flick round recently.

I had a good clear out of the fridge too, lots of salad and veg bits that need using up.

I am making a Bacon, Mushroom, Pepper and Blue Cheese Frittata , delicious, easy and tastes delicious 😊

I start by frying off chopped spring onion, bell pepper, mushrooms, smoked bacon (only as I have a couple of rashers to use up) – you can use whatever you have, courgettes, Spinach, onions blah, blah blah, the list goes on – just go for it

In a separate bowl add 8 whole eggs, A splash of double cream (or milk) a pinch of salt and pepper, whisk with a fork till blended then add the Veg and bacon mix, stir through.

Add to this some chopped flat leaf parsley, and diced Aldi Gorgonzola cheese (any cheese will do) – gently stir through, and wait till the Frittata starts to pull away from the edges of the pan and starts to firm.

Pop under a hot grill till cooked through.

When done, remove from the grill and leave to cool for 5 minutes then invert into a plate (please be careful) then turn back over.

I have used a sad looking half of advacado  to make guacamole mix the advacado with diced spring onion, chopped coriander, chopped tomato, juice of half a lemon, salt, pepper and stir together

I like mine chunky, but make it how you like it.

Whilst this is cooking, I boil some new potatoes for Hubby and prepare a lovely salad  for all of us to have.

Hi - I'm a 49 yo Mum to 3 kids - Jordan (23), Grace (21) and Max (19). And Wife to my lovely Husband, Dave and step mum to 4 fur babies, our cats Eric, Ernie, Cilla and Bobbie. We live on the beautiful Isle of Wight, Hubby and I were born here, and just love our home. As I hurtle towards 50, my life as a full time (working) parent is coming to an end, with my eldest 2 kids living their own lives, and my youngest who started University in September. I realised that this is not a time to be sad, but a time to take time to spend time on some of the things I enjoy doing - mainly cooking, crafting and creating Pinterest boards for said thing s :) This blog is just a way for me to record the next stages of our lives - I hope you enjoy my ramblings...

  1. looks lovely how goes it with your weight loss campaign ? mine seems to have gone into reverse did you know there is a weight loss thread on the old style board with a largely pleasant group of supportive folk might help xx

    1. My clothes feel looser, I don’t weigh, so that’s how I measure it – I do feel slimmer, but I think it’s going to take a while for it to be noticeable- took 5 years to go on 😲 I haven’t looked at that thread, because I do low carb not low cal or low fat, my food can look weird to traditional dieters 🤣 Thanks for asking x
