This is a delicious savory frittata elevating the already perfect match of bacon and brussel sprouts to another level by adding nutty manchego cheese.
You will not find manchego in the shredded cheese section. You shouldn’t have much trouble finding it in the “real” cheese section. It is a firm cheese that shreddeds easily – took me less than a minute with a microplane to shred enough for this recipe. I have also substituted shredded parmesan and it is equally good.
I’m experimenting with the baking powder in the frittata base. I definitely used way more than usual when making this and you can tell it is quite puffy. I think the 1/4 tsp is still enough to give a little lift.
