Easter’s just around the river bend, folks! What’s on your menu?

Normally, when my family gets together for Easter, we whip up the whole brunching spread, including some sort of bacon and egg dish, a funky fresh fruit salad, some crazy Jello thing you don’t want to hear about, and something pastry-licious like cinnamon rolls.

Looking for a fresh idea, I searched Cooking Light‘s website for a frittata recipe.  I found their Ham and Asparagus Frittata and knew it was an instant fit. Since I already had bacon on hand, I used it in place of the ham and made some other adjustments.

This year, I’ll be skiing with my buds in Breckenridge, CO, so my guess is I’ll be eating a mountain of nachos and taking shotskis sipping on a brewski for Easter brunch. But for those of you who are assembling a proper gathering, here’s a great egg option for your feast:

This super simple frittata is pretty fantastic.

The bacon fat is what makes the whole skillet happen if we’re being honest. Seriously, have you tried a bacon-ttata? The drippings lube up the skillet like whoaaaa there, horsey, making serving the thing cinch.

Plus, it keeps the eggs super flavorful, moist, and tender. Tender eggs are good eggs.

What I learned from this post: I need to use the word lube more often in recipe instructions. Also, I LOVE FRITTATAS!

I am kind of jealous of your shot-skiing trip! Bacon fat makes everything more glorious. I want a frittata for dinner. I love how pretty that asparagus looks in that side profile slice pic. Gorg!
