Oven-Baked Frittata with Bacon Lardon, Spinach and Fontina Cheese

Ingredients:
1/2 bunch spinach
4 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
Pinch of red pepper flakes
Squeeze of lemon juice
7 eggs, beaten & seasoned with salt & black pepper
3/4 lb. slab bacon, cut into 1" cubes and rendered over low heat for 20 minutes until deeply golden brown
1 cup shredded fontina cheese
Salt and pepper to taste

Method:
Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees.

In a frying pan, sauté spinach in 2 tablespoons olive oil over medium heat. Add red pepper flakes, salt, pepper and lemon juice. Sauté until spinach is wilted (about two minutes). Set aside.

In a 10" cast iron skillet, heat remaining two tablespoons olive oil over medium heat. Pour in beaten eggs and allow to sizzle for a moment. Reduce flame to low and strew in pieces of spinach and cubed bacon pieces. Allow to cook slowly for an additional five minutes, then cover entirely with shredded cheese.

Place skillet in the oven for approximately 15 minutes, or until the eggs are set. Serve from the skillet.
