French Onion Dip Mix in Small Gold Spoon on Wood and Marble Cutting Board with Mason Jar

I love making my own homemade seasonings! It’s cheaper than buying packaged seasonings at the store, you know exactly what’s going in it and you can make a big batch of it and have it on hand to add to recipes throughout the week!

One or two times I year, I head to Costco or hop on Amazon and purchase several large containers of spices to create my favorite seasoning mixes. These 7 spices are always on my list:

I use these to then mix up my Taco Seasoning, Fajita Seasoning (equal parts chili powder, paprika, cumin and sea salt) and this French Onion Dip Mix.

I keep them in mason jars in the pantry so they’re ready to use in recipes anytime!

Spinach, Goat Cheese and Bacon Frittata

A bag of spinach, a carton of eggs and a package of bacon, what to do, what to do?? It’s sounding like my Italian ancestors version of an omelet is about to happen!  Yes, if you were wondering what exactly a frittata was or what the difference between a frittata and quiche were, you are not alone!  So in the simplest terms: a quiche has a crust (usually) and more liquid than egg, where as a frittata has more egg than liquid and no crust, there it is!

So whether you just learned your fun fact of the day or not, you’re about to dive into a delicious recipe for this Italian crust-less egg dish!

Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 10 minutes

Ingredients (serves 4)

  • 6 slices bacon
  • 8 eggs
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 1 tsp kosher salt
  • 1 tsp pepper
  • 1 tsp olive oil
  • 1/2 onion
  • 1/2 red pepper
  • 3 cups spinach
  • 2 oz goat cheese
  • 1 avocado

Start by frying up the bacon.

Don’t mind those extra couple slices of bacon.  Those are for…. someone 😉 Fry until crispy then drain the grease, crumble and mix together with the eggs, milk, salt and pepper.

Next, heat the olive oil in a sauté pan and add the onion and red bell pepper.

Sauté for 2-3 minutes then add spinach and sauté for an additional 3 minutes.

I know that looks like a LOT of spinach, but I promise it will cook down!

See, I promised 🙂

Next, add in the egg and bacon mixture.

Let cook for 2 minutes then crumble the goat cheese on top.

These chunks of goat cheese add an amazing creamy surprise in the middle of the Frittata!  Now cook on the stove for 5 minutes, then move into the oven to finish cooking at 400° for 10 more minutes.  Remove from the oven and voila!

I sliced the Frittata into pieces, topped with avocado and served with homemade rosemary focaccia bread!
