Mother’s Day Brunch – Spinach, Mushroom & Bacon Frittata

It’s Mom’s day, so go ahead and cook for her!

And don’t shy away from brunch because you think you have to stand in the kitchen and make 3 dozen fried eggs or a million pancakes. This easy frittata throws together quickly — for Mother’s Day or any day — and is made even easier if you use the pre-cooked ready bacon.
