A one pan wonder

Ingredients

5 large eggs

2-3 slices of bacon, cooked and crumbled (save the fat!)

3 large mushrooms, sliced

1 green onion, sliced finely

1 cup Cheddar cheese, grated

4 ciabatta buns


Directions

1. Turn on the broiler in the oven and place a rack about 5 inches below the element.

2. Warm up about 1 Tbsp of bacon fat in a ten inch ovenproof skillet over medium heat until it's melted. If you don't have bacon fat, butter is a good substitute.

3. Add the mushrooms to the pan, give them a little stir, and then let them sit for a bit so that they brown up on one side before you stir them again. Once the are nicely browned a bit add the green onions and turn down the heat. Stir and cook for another 2 minutes or so before adding the chopped bacon.

4. Crack the eggs into a medium sized bowl and lightly beat them, then pour the eggs over everything in the pan evenly so it's covered. Set the pan back on the heat, but turn the burner off. Top the frittata with cheese.

5. Place the pan in under the broiler and watch carefully as the cheese melts and the egg sets up. Remove the pan from the oven as soon as it's cooked to your liking.

6. Butter and toast the buns while the fritatta cools slightly. Cut the frittata into quarters and stuff each quarter into a bun. You can eat them as is, or top with fresh spinach, arugula, tomato and/or avocado slices. make it your own!
