What could be easier to make than a frittata! I make them weekly. In the ongoing adventures of getting nutritionally-dense foods into my children, I came up with this recipe. I wanted to get them eating more eggs. They like sweet things. I didn’t want to use sweeteners. Looking around the kitchen I decided bananas would add sweet. I also added in the bacon because everyone loves BACON! Now my kids request their Banana Bacon Frittata.
Banana Bacon Frittata
What could be easier to make than a frittata! It's also a great way to get more nutrients into your kids.
- 4 pastured eggs
- 1 ripe banana
- 1-2 Tbsp bacon fat (from pastured, uncured bacon)
- 1 piece of crumbled bacon
1. Heat bacon fat in a medium skillet over medium-high heat.
2. Put eggs and banana into a blender. Blend until smooth, about 30 seconds.
3. Pour mixture into hot skillet.
4. Crumble bacon on top.
5. Cover and turn the heat down to medium-low.
6. Cook until there is no more liquid egg, and the edges begin to brown.
7. Garnish with bacon bits.
8. Serve. I sliced it with a pizza cutter into strips and served it as finger food to my little ones. Yum! Tastes sweet like french toast.

Found your blog through Pintrest; love, love, love it! Thank you so much 🙂
Yay, that made me smile. Glad you are enjoying it!
this looks delicious, but does it taste very “eggy?”
Not at all, tastes like french toast!
Sorry to post again, but i HAD to let you know how incredible this is. i have hated eggs all my life, but this recipes is BANANAS (pun totally intended). I have gone crazy telling everybody to eat this! its sooo good and you are a kitchen genius!
Very good, had this morning. Have you ever added vanilla or cinnamon?
Erica, YES! I have tried both and love it! I should add those to the recipe too 🙂
Yum! I made these in the waffle press and my kiddos gobbled them right up. I added vanilla, cinnamon, and cloves. I did leave out the bacon, but substituted coconut oil right in the batter (after the first one stuck). Definitely will be making these again as my kids are already asking for more!
Awesome idea to use the waffle press. I am going to try that! Glad you liked them 🙂
Made it this morning! So easy and delicious! My thought was, "Now, why didn't I think of that!" 😉
Do you think you could make this ahead and freeze? We’re gutting our kitchen and I’m looking for things to make that can be heated in the microwave…
It probably would freeze okay, as long as you freeze it in a bag with all of the air out. The texture might change a bit. Worth a try! I love making meals that I can freeze! My 3-ingredient waffles freeze well for a quick breakfast.
You can also try with peppers and maple sausagr.
