This bacon Swiss chard frittata recipe is so satisfying and delicious, the fact it's so good for you is just an added bonus. You can make this frittata recipe using other greens such as arugula or spinach - or use up leftover vegetables, which many claim is why the frittata was invented.

Makes 6 Slices of Bacon Swiss Chard Frittata

Prep Time: 15 minutes

Cook Time: 20 minutes

Total Time: 35 minutes


  • 6 strips bacon, sliced
  • 1 bunch Swiss chard, wash thoroughly, stems removed, chopped
  • 1 clove garlic, finely minced
  • 1/4 tsp red pepper flakes
  • 1/2 pound russet potatoes, cooked, cut in chunks
  • salt and black pepper to taste
  • 8 eggs, beaten
  • 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese


Cook the bacon in a large skillet, over medium heat until crisp. Remove and drain all but 1 tbsp of the bacon fat. Reduce the heat to med-low, and add the Swiss chard. Don't worry about crowding the pan, as the chard will quickly wilt down. Cook for 3-4 minutes, until the greens are completely wilted.

Add the garlic and pepper flakes; sauté for 1 minute. Add the potatoes, salt and fresh ground black pepper to taste, and mix into the greens. Pour in the eggs, and cook stirring for about 5 minutes, or until the eggs begin to set.

Sprinkle the Parmesan over the top and finish cooking the frittata under a preheated broiler, about 8 inches from the heat, for 4-5 minutes, or until the top is browned and the eggs are set. Let cool for 5 minutes before serving in wedges.
