  • 2 tsp butter
  • 3 green onions thinly sliced
  • 6 large eggs
  • ¼ cup milk
  • ½ tsp salt
  • ¼ tsp ground black pepper
  • 4 slices bacon cooked and crumbled
  • 1 tbsp chopped fresh parsley
  • ¼ cup sour cream
  • ¼ cup Monterey Jack cheese grated


  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
  • Add the butter to an 8-inch ovenproof skillet over medium heat. Saute the green onion until tender, about 3 minutes.
  • While the onions cook, beat the eggs with the milk in a small bowl. Stir in the salt and pepper.
  • When the onions are tender, pour the egg mixture to the pan. Stir in the parsley and crumbled bacon.
  • Cook for 4-5 minutes, lifting the edges of the egg mixture to allow uncooked mixture to flow underneath.
  • When eggs are beginning to set but still very soft, remove the pan from the heat and swirl the sour cream on the top.
  • Sprinkle with cheese and place in the oven for about 6-8 minutes or until the frittata is puffed and golden.
  • Serve warm or at room temperature.


Instead of bacon, you can substitute almost any protein of your choosing. Ham, sausage, and leftover roasted chicken are always great.
Feel free to add cooked veggies into the mix. Peppers, onions, spinach, and tomatoes are all good choices. Just make sure they're cooked and drained well before adding them.
You can also change up the cheese. Gruyere or Swiss are great choices as are cheddar, Parmesan, and feta.
You'll need a small ovenproof skillet for making the frittata. An 8-inch or 10-inch size is best. If you don't have one, you can transfer the mixture to an 8x8 baking dish or a pie dish to finish cooking in the oven.
Make your frittata a complete meal by serving it along with roasted potatoes, fresh fruit, a mixed green salad, and toast, rolls, or biscuits.
