I Know About Second Breakfast: Bacon, Cheddar, and Spinach Frittata


“What about breakfast?”

“You’ve already had it.”

“We’ve had one, yes. What about second breakfast?”

I wholeheartedly agree with the idea of second breakfast, and not just because the greatest author who ever lived is the one who gave me the idea. To me breakfast is sunshine, comfort, rejuvenation, and bacon. Why not enjoy it twice? And while I didn’t eat elevenses today (you really get points if you get that reference), we did decide to have second breakfast instead of lunch. Greatest idea ever.

Bacon, Cheddar, and Spinach Frittata

  • 1/4 c. onions (or half onions and half green peppers if you’re feeling feisty)
  • 2 slices thick-cut bacon
  • 2 handfuls of fresh spinach
  • 4 organic eggs
  • 1/4 c. 2% organic milk
  • 1 slice of mild cheddar cheese + 2 T. finely shredded
  • salt and pepper to taste

-Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Place the bacon slices over a medium-high heat in a large nonstick skillet. Once the fat starts to melt, add the onion and green pepper. Cook until the onion is nice and brown and the bacon is cooked (about 8 minutes,), stirring frequently with a wooden spoon. With the back of the wooden spoon cut the bacon into chunks.

-Add the spinach and sautee until its tender.

-Lower the heat to low, and meanwhile whisk together the eggs and milk in a small bowl.

-Pour eggs into the skillet. Top with the slice of cheese, broken up, and salt and pepper to taste.

-Stir gently until eggs just begin to cook. Turn off the heat.

-Place the entire skillet into the preheated oven and cook for 5 minutes. Add shredded cheese and cook for another five minutes, or until eggs are completely cooked and cheese is melted. Remove from the oven and let sit 2 minutes to cool.

-Slice it up and enjoy with juice or whatever else you think belongs with second breakfast!
