    I make this with whatever I have in the fridge. Today I cut up bacon, tomato and mushrooms and put in oven proof tin (cake tin actually) with a little olive oil and plenty of salt and pepper and put in oven on lowest setting (you could cook this part on hob if in a hurry). Then mixed 4 (large) eggs with double cream and added it and put back in oven, again on lowest temperature, for about 20 minutes. Turn off oven and leave egg to finish cooking in residual heat. If I use cooked meat or cheese I add with the eggs so they doesn't overcook. I'm afraid I can't give quantities as I mainly cook 'by eye' as I have been doing this for a while. Obviously if you're strict keto I expect you'd want to weigh the ingredients. This will be enough for me for 3 or 4 breakfasts.

    Frittatas are an excellent way to use up what you have in the fridge.

    I prefer to allow it to thaw overnight in the fridge and pop it into a toaster oven or reheat gently in a skillet.

    I meal prepped and chose this as my breakfast. I used an extra large muffin tin. I filled 5 cups with the liquid, then I added the bacon to the cup, then the spinach, and lastly the cheese. I have learned with frittas that it is easy to overcook. I really kept an eye on my frittata. It did need to cook a little longer. I let the frittas rest a few minutes before I removed them from the pan. My non-low carb husband loved them. They are really good. They also kept well....I ate them for 4 breakfasts (because the hubs and I shared one as a taste test). I highly recommend.

    We have not tested this with frozen spinach. If you'd like to try it, be sure and drain and squeeze the spinach well to get the extra liquid out.

    Frozen spinach works great. I divy up a 12oz bag, freeze 1/2 for another time. Microwave spinach then drain well with paper towels. Scatter on top of frittata. Wonderful!

    I’ve been on keto almost 3 yrs & i just want to encourage ppl how inexpensive, time-saving, convenient & just as healthy frozen spinach, broccoli, cauliflower, bell peppers, & berries are compared to fresh. My little freezer is full of on-sale frozen vegetables, salmon, ground beef, bacon & butter. Wish I had a bigger freezer!

    I also made this discovery and feel so much better about not wasting fresh produce.

    What us the portion size?

    The portion size can vary depending on how much the dish condenses down as you cook it. We always list the number of servings (and that can be adjusted) to help gauge serving size. If you make 4 servings, then a serving is 25% of what you've cooked.
