10 eggs
1 cup cheddar cheese, grated
Sea salt and white pepper
1 tablespoon butter
2 cooking apples, peeled, cored, sliced lengthwise into 1/8-inch-thick pieces
Optional: 2-3 slices cooked, crumbled bacon

  1. Preheat oven to 450°F. Whisk together the eggs, half the cheese, bacon, if using, and salt and pepper to taste.
  2. In a medium cast iron skillet, heat butter over medium heat and swirl to coat the sides of the pan. Pour in egg mixture. Cook about 2 minutes until edge is set. While it’s cooking , arrange the apple slices on top in a circular pattern, starting from the outside edge, and sprinkle with remaining cheese.
  3. Place skillet in oven. Bake until frittata is set in the center and cheese is browned, about 15 minutes. Loosen edges with a spatula and slide frittata onto a cutting board. Cut into wedges. Serve hot.

Apples that would work well for this recipe: gala, granny smith, braeburn. Almost any apple except red delicious, which is best eaten raw.
