1 lb   Swiss chard

Swiss Chard Frittata Directions

  1. Preheat convection oven to 325°F or conventional oven to 350°F. Coat bottom and sides of two 2-inch full hotel pans with cooking spray.
  2. Cook bacon, turning occasionally, in a large skillet over medium heat until crispy, about 10 minutes. Drain on paper towel and cut into ⅛-inch pieces.
  3. Rinse chard but do not dry. Trim tough stem ends and discard. Cut leaves and stems into rough 1-inch pieces. Set aside.
  4. Heat oil in a 16-inch skillet over low heat. Add the bacon and onions. Cook, stirring occasionally, until the onions are translucent, 8 to 10 minutes.
  5. Stir in the chard. Cook, stirring occasionally, until the chard begins to wilt, 8 to 10 minutes. Remove from the heat and set aside.
  6. Whisk eggs in a large bowl. Add garlic and salt. Whisk until well combined. Stir in 2 cups cheese.
  7. Divide the egg mixture evenly between the prepared pans. Evenly distribute half the chard on top of the egg mixture in each pan. Sprinkle each pan with 2 Tblsp cheese.
  8. Bake until a knife inserted in the center comes out clean and the top is beginning to brown, 20 to 25 minutes. Cut each pan into 24 squares.
