What ingredients you need to make these frittata squares:

  • Zucchini – shredded and be sure to squeeze out moisture so it doesn’t water down the squares. You can also use other veggies you want like chopped up broccoli, carrots, spinach etc.
  • Olive oil or avocado oil – ether works in this recipe
  • Eggs – the main ingredient, no subs!
  • Almond flour – I haven’t tested a sub for flour here. If you want to use a gluten-free all purpose flour, use about 3/4 cup instead of 1 cup almond flour
  • Bacon, uncooked and chopped
  • Cheddar cheese – shredded cheddar cheese in this is so good! But you can absolutely use any cheese you want like goat cheese, feta cheese, mozzarella, etc.
