Gorgonzola, Apple and Bacon Frittata with Lemony Arugula

When you have a busy work week, egg dishes are the perfect solution to a healthy, protein-packed dinner that is super quick to make. This frittata is sweet, salty and nutty and the fresh arugula on top adds a wonderful burst of freshness.


1. Preheat oven to 350. 
2. Heat a 10-inch oven-safe nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add oil, apple and bacon and cook until the bacon is crisp, about 4-5 minutes. 


3. In  a bowl, whisk the eggs, milk, salt and pepper. Pour the egg mixture into the skillet and sprinkle with gorgonzola. Stir and cook until the edges start to pull away from the pan, about 5 minutes. 



4. Bake for 18 minutes, or until set. Meanwhile, combine the lemon zest/juice, honey, Dijon, salt and pepper in a large bowl. Add the arugula and lightly toss to combine. 




5. Cut the frittata into wedges and top with arugula and a sprinkle of cheese.
