Spinach and Cheddar Frittata

I’ve had spinach on the brain lately (in addition to my ongoing Mexican kick), and when I got to thinking about what I had around the house, a frittata seemed like a fast, easy, and excellently delicious dinner.

You know, if there was one thing that could have made this dish better, it would be bacon. I didn’t want to stop anywhere on my way home from work, so I made due without it, but I highly suggest you add a strip or two of cooked and crumbled bacon! For the love of all things holy, add bacon!
