Lately our chickens are producing scads of very adorable baby size chicken eggs. We refreshed our Flock last spring. Now our refrigerator is stuffed with Tiny little eggs. Come on over and grab a dozen 🙂
Our menus lately use quite a few eggs and those almost grown hens just keep delivering more! We increased the flock from four really old hens to eleven. A rooster baby that thinks he’s all that and loves to attack me somehow slipped into the group 🙁
This Delicious frittata pulled my son-in-law out of bed. I texted him to come eat breakfast this morning. He loaded Kayti in truck and drove right over!
I sent him pictures. Those bacony smells grabbed him right through the phone!!
I sent him more pictures as the frittata was getting smaller… and smaller. Dave and Evan wouldn’t wait!
Brian arrived just in time to finish it up! A 9×13 pan of frittata quickly became a lovely, bacony, breakfast memory. And there were only 5 of us.

All it takes is chopping the veggies. Cooking the bacon on the stove before baking is important too. You want it completely cooked before adding it to the frittata for perfect texture and flavor.
ABOUT BACON and other smoked meats:
We went years and years without bacon on our menus. Dave insisted on avoiding the bad chemicals that bacon contains. Sodium nitrites in particular.
Now you can find bacon without the nasty additives right in the local grocery store.
