Looking for a light dinner idea to add alongside an easy salad? You’ll enjoy this Pumpkin, Bacon and Feta Frittata. It’s fuss-free and takes little effort to make. I was hoping that there was going to be leftovers for lunch the next day, but my family absolutely loved it and didn’t leave any behind.
When I say fuss-free, it truly is although the only thing that takes the time is peeling and chopping the pumpkin into small bite-sized cubes. You don’t even have to fry the bacon. Add the pumpkin and bacon into a bowl, drizzle with oil then pop into the oven on a baking tray to cook through and brown.
I forgot to take a photo of how easy it is to layer the casserole dish with the bacon, pumpkin, spring onion (you can use regular onion or a leek if you don’t have spring onions) feta and tasty cheese, only takes a few moments.
