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.

- ¼ teaspoon black pepper
- ½ cup chopped fresh spinach
- 5 slices bacon cooked and crumbled
- 6 slices from a medium size tomato
- ½ cup grated cheese of choice *optional
- Kitchen Tools:
- 9 inch pie dish like this one
- Mixing bowl

- Preheat the oven to 400 °F, and grease or oil a 9 inch pie dish. In a large mixing bowl combine: 5 beaten eggs, ½ cup egg whites, ½ cup ricotta, ½ teaspoon sea salt, ¼ teaspoon ground mustard, and ¼ teaspoon black pepper. Whisk and beat all ingredients together. Make sure to break up the ricotta well. It is okay if there are small ricotta clumps.

I made this for lunch to use up some ricotta, and it was terrific! I didn't include the spinach and tomato because of my daughter's preferences, but I included parmesan cheese on top, which was a great addition. Also, I blended the eggs and ricotta in my blender, which made for a nice, smooth mixture. Thanks so much!
Thank you so much for trying the recipe and sharing your tips and additions, Jocelyn. I love the blender idea and the parmesan addition!

Thank you Tina.
This was quite tasty, however I added some grated cheddar and 1/2 cup of heavy cream into the egg mixture. Took a little longer to cook but was nice and creamy.
Thank you Marilyn for your kind words and sharing your yummy additions to the recipe with us 🙂
I eat kosher. Would this still taste as good without the bacon or should some type of meat be added for flavor purposes?
Stephanie, my friend that eats kosher uses grass fed beef bacon. She said it is at the grocery store and it might even be a kosher store she goes too. I have seen it at whole Foods market.
Hi just made this for the first time as trying to follow low fermentation diet. How long will it keep in the fridge pls!
Nicola, I have kept it in the fridge for up to a week.
I am allergic to something in egg beaters so I don't use any kind of egg whites in a carton. Can I just use regular eggs, yolk included or does it have to be just egg whites for the 1/2 cup?
Jennifer, I don't use egg beaters, I use 100 % organic egg whites (no gums or additives just egg whites). Might not be available at all stores though, but you can use whole eggs (yolks and all) instead of separating all those eggs.
If you just use eggs how many would you need or do you just measure them equal to 1/2 cup? I can't wait to try this as I have lots of garden fresh tomatos.
Nsbeach, Just add 3 more whole eggs (8 eggs total)
SOOO tired of seeing the comment about NEVER eating bananas, just to give this woman business! I've lost 50 lbs in 5 months low-carbing! 🙂 However, if you go TOO low carb, you can get depressed and sluggish, which is what happened to me! So, I have a small banana, as green as I can stomach it, and I don't get depressed. Bananas are a WONDERFUL food, just don't eat a huge, very ripe one! I'm a science, etc., teacher and also studied in R.N. school.
Hi Susan, congratulations on your amazing weight loss!! I agree with you on the banana debate. A little banana or apple in moderation will not ruin the diet. I eat the banana, apple and carrot in small amounts and still manage to stay moderately low carb. I did not eat them in Induction phase, and I became weak, sick, and depressed. So, I introduced a little fruit back in my diet and immediately felt better. I think if you eat them in small amounts it is okay and healthy. Only a problem if bananas are a trigger food for someone.
Wonder how this will do in muffin cups and frozen. Do the sides burn easily? I cook for one and think it might be great for easy breakfast. Suggestions welcomed.
Dee, I think these would do well in muffin cups. If your worried about burning in the reheating process, then you could just take them out a little sooner (slightly underdone) for reheating. Also, you can use the baking cup liners that keep them from the metal sides of the pan.
This looks beautiful and delicious =P I had something similar the morning after Thanksgiving with leftover ham and turkey. I have to say it was pretty amazing!
Thanks Tash, frittata is great for left-overs and cleaning out the fridge.
