  • 6 pieces bacon raw
  • 1/2 onion medium, thinly sliced
  • 1 bunch red chard coarsely chopped
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 1/2 teaspoon red chili pepper flakes
  • 6 eggs
  • 1 tablespoon heavy cream
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 3/4 cup ricotta cheese
  • 2 tablespoons Parmesan cheese shredded


  • Preheat oven to 350 Fahrenheit.
  • Fry up bacon in a well seasoned 10-inch cast-iron pan over low-medium heat until it is thoroughly cooked, but not quite crispy, about 8-10 minutes. Once the bacon is cooked, transfer out of the pan and chop into 1cm chunks. Reserve the pan for baking the frittata.
  • Using the fat rendered from the bacon, grease a large saute pan and cook the onion over medium heat until it becomes translucent.
  • Add red chard to the pan. Toss and stir to coat the leaves in bacon fat and cook for 2-3 minutes. Season the onion and red chard with salt, pepper, and red chili flakes. Stir in bacon and transfer to the cast-iron pan.
  • Beat eggs and heavy cream together in a medium mixing bowl. Season with salt and pepper.
  • Fold the ricotta and Parmesan cheese into the beaten eggs. Slowly mix until the mixture appears lumpy and stop before the cheese is completely blended in.
  • Pour the egg mixture over the bacon and vegetables in the cast-iron pan. Stir to evenly distribute the ingredients throughout the eggs.
  • Bake for 20 minutes. For the last 1-2 minutes, switch on the broiler of the oven to develop a light golden color on top.
  • Remove from heat and let cool for at least 10 minutes prior to serving.
