Mushroom & Bacon Frittata

I just don’t like food going to waste so I am always looking for ways to use up leftovers before I do my grocery shopping at the end of the week. I woke up today craving all sorts like, bofrot, koose, ofam muffins and generally some good soul food. The minute I looked in my fridge and saw the little bits of vegetables which would go off very soon, I thought aah ha, let’s whip something up. So this recipe came about, mushroom and bacon frittata. Basically you can make frittata with any vegetables you have available.

I really enjoyed it with some leftover Indian curry & basmati rice. It was such a wholesome meal for brunch. For the video illustration please go to my YouTube Channel Mushroom & Bacon Frittata.
