This recipe doesn't take that much skill, it's very easy to do and only takes about five minutes to prepare and another 25 minutes to bake. You can have a delicious frittata at home.
Ingredients needed per person:
- Two fresh eggs
- Two strips of bacon
- Shaved Gruyere cheese or substitute with your favorite like Parmesan, mozzarella or cheddar.
- Handfull of raw spinach
- Quarter cup of milk or cream
- Salt-and-pepper for seasoning
Start by preheating oven to 375 degrees.
Next cut the bacon into small strips and crisp
Whisk the eggs, add the cheese, cream, salt and pepper.
Either in a cast iron skillet, oven safe pan or oven safe dish pour all your ingredients over the spinach. You can butter the pan if you like to avoid sticking. Bake the oven for 25 minutes until you could see the top golden brown and eggs fully cooked.
Let your frittata cool for five-ten minutes so that it's easier to remove from the pan.
A delicious wine to enjoy with breakfast items or brunch is Champagne. This is one of my favorite grower producers called Paul Dethune. Comes from the Grand Cru village of Ambonnay in the Montagne the Reims. Their method for producing Rosé is a bit unusual, not quite a saignée entirely. The Pinot Noir grapes are left to macerate with the skins until they achieve the desired color, then he adds chardonnay to lighten the color and add finesse to the wine. The result is a beautiful colored wine with hints of raspberry cherry, mineral, apple and bright acidity.
Serve the frittata with a side salad and buttered toast. Enjoy.

Champagne Thiénot will be the exclusive Champagne featured at the Oscars during the pre-show, as well as at the prestigious Governors Ball, both on Oscar Sunday, February 24, 2013 at the Dolby Theatre in the heart of Hollywood. This is the first time the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences (AMPAS) has elected to feature a little-known, relatively rare Champagne. For many years, Moet et Chandon has been the exclusive Champagne.
“We are thrilled that the Academy has selected our family-owned House for this prestigious event. As a very small and young ‘Grande Marque,’ being selected by the Academy is like receiving an Oscar for Best Champagne!” says François Peltereau-Villeneuve, President & CEO of Thiénot USA.
During the pre-show reception, guests will enjoy Thiénot Brut, while at the Governors Ball the Thiénot Rosé and the Thiénot Vintage 2005 will be paired with the fine cuisine of Chef Wolfgang Puck. see menu Thiénot Champagne comes from the city of Reims, located in the heart of the historic Champagne region. Most of the grapes come from its own vineyards, in the famous Côte des Blancs and Montagne de Reims.
I am excited for this producer as we distribute it in Illinois through Tenzing Wine & Spirits.
