“5-Ingredient Fix Contest Entry. A potato green onion, red pepper and crispy bacon frittata, perfect for brunch, as a dinner side dish, or as an appetizer. We whipped this up one day when we had surprise guests for brunch, and served it with some blueberry muffins and grilled maple syrup sausages. It's now one of our favorite meals, we enjoy it for breakfast, lunch or dinner.”
1 Large frittata

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 (20 ounce) bag Simply Potatoes® Shredded Hash Browns
  • 2 large eggs, beaten
  • 6 green onions, green and white parts minced
  • 1 medium red bell pepper, finely minced
  • 12 cup chopped chopped crisply-cooked hickory smoked bacon


  1. Mama’s Breakfast Surprise #5FIX.
  2. Thaw and drain potatoes, place in a large bowl, and set aside.
  3. In a medium bowl beat two eggs until well mixed. Add to the potatoes and stir well.
  4. Add in the minced green onions and red pepper and stir. Fold in the bacon pieces.
  5. Spoon the potato-onion-pepper-bacon mixture into a large nonstick pan. You can do this with all the mix for a large frittata or in smaller rounds (about 1/4 cup at a time). Cook over medium high heat until the frittata is browned on the bottom and firm, 4-6 minutes, then turn over and brown the other side, for about the same time.
  6. If doing smaller frittata's keep the cooked ones warm in a 200?F oven until they all are cooked. If you cooked up one large frittata cut it into 4-6 portions and serve.
