My 10 year reunion is in a month and a half. I really did not think I would be one of those people who get all wrapped up trying to look good the last month or two beforehand. But, alas this food blog has not been too kind to my waist line. So I am trying to reverse the past few months over the next 2 months. Honestly, I am friends with most of these people on facebook still. Not like they have not seen pictures of me. It is really more for me.
The closer it gets to time, some interesting revelations have come over me. A. I am getting old. Not too bad yet, but wrinkles are showing, a few grey hairs. Yikes. B. I am not exactly close to the size I was in High School. In High School, I actually had a complex about my weight. What I would give to have that physique back!
So, I am starting here. This recipe has become one of my favorites very quickly. I even made it again tonight after editing pictures. You eat it like a pizza….ok, like eating a pizza with a fork. I cut it into 4 slices and can easily finish one slice, 2 slices, not so much. It is filling.
I know you are wondering the actual nutritional value of this, so here you go.

Printable Recipe – Frittata
Mushroom, Goat Cheese and Onion Frittata
4 strips of uncooked bacon
½ tbsp unsalted butter
1 clove garlic, minced
½ cup diced yellow onion
2 cups variety mushrooms
7 medium eggs
1 oz herbed goat cheese Salt and Pepper to taste
1/8 cup shredded fat free Cheddar Cheese
Preheat the oven to 375F.
In a 10 inch oven safe skillet, cook the bacon till crispy over medium heat. Remove and crumble bacon and set aside.
Drain excess fat renderings from pan (just enough to keep it slick) and add the ½ tablespoon of butter, still on medium heat. Once butter is melted, add garlic, onion and mushrooms to pan. Sautee until onions and mushrooms look done (3-4 minutes).
While those are sauteing, combine the eggs, milk, goat cheese, salt and pepper in a medium bowl. Whisk until combined. Pour egg mixture over sautéed vegetables and reduce heat to low/medium.
Allow egg to cook on the stove top for 5-6 minutes until the outer edges and bottom is cooked. Place entire skillet in the oven for 8-9 minutes until middle is set, adding the shredded cheese about half way through.
Slice and serve immediately.
