Bacon Spinach Tomato Ricotta Frittata
Bacon Spinach Tomato Ricotta Frittata is an easy to prepare, low carb dish that is crust free, gluten free, primal and grain free. Especially quick to whip up if you have leftover cooked bacon on hand. Do people ever have leftover bacon, lol?
This frittata is extra creamy from the ricotta, full of healthy spinach, and topped with some tomato slices. Almost forgot, did I mention there is bacon throughout? I used heirloom tomatoes, because I love the colors, but you can use any kind of tomato.
I topped mine with optional grated cheddar after removing from the oven so it melts over the top. I also served mine with hot sauce, but I’m slightly obsessed with spicy sauces.
Pour the frittata mixture into pie dish.
Place tomato slices on top and Bake.
