Bacon on a workday? Yes, please! These freezable frittatas are a weekday morning saviour. Heat 'em up in the microwave and enjoy on toast or an English muffin, or on their own with a side of greens or sliced avocado.

  • Prep time 20 minutes
  • Total time 45 minutes
  • Portion size 8 servings

Ingredients

  • 4 cups brussels sprouts (about 450 g) , trimmed and quartered
  • 4 strips bacon , chopped
  • 8 eggs
  • 1/2 cup homogenized milk
  • 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese

Method

In large saucepan of boiling salted water, cook brussels sprouts until tender, about 3 minutes. Drain and rinse under cold water; drain well.

Meanwhile, in nonstick skillet, cook bacon over medium-high heat, stirring often, until crisp, about 2 minutes. Using slotted spoon, transfer to paper towel–lined plate.

Drain all but 1 tsp fat from pan; sauté brussels sprouts with pinch salt over medium-high heat until beginning to brown, about 5 minutes. Stir in bacon. Scrape into lightly greased 13- x 9-inch (3.5 L) baking dish.

Whisk together eggs, milk and pinch salt; pour into baking dish. Sprinkle with Parmesan. Bake in 350°F oven until puffed and knife inserted in centre comes out clean, 25 to 30 minutes. Let cool slightly. Cut into 8 squares. (Make-ahead: Wrap each square in plastic wrap and refrigerate for up to 3 days or overwrap in foil and freeze for up to 3 weeks. Reheat in microwave or oven.)
