Zucchini and Bacon Frittata (Gluten-Free)

Celiac.com 03/17/2011 - Frittatas are great because you can serve them right out of the skillet and they are perfect either warm, or at room-temperature. This Italian-inspired dish takes on a sultry personality with the added saltiness of the bacon.  I think the fontina gives this dish a little more sophistication, but cheese is a mere state of mind; use whatever is handy.

A tip for you spice-fiends: add some hot sauce to the egg mixture for a little extra bite.

Ingredients:
2 small russet potatoes, peeled and diced into ½-inch cubes
1 zucchini, grated
3 strips cooked bacon, crumbled
4 large eggs
2 tablespoons fresh cilantro, chopped
1 small onion, diced
2 cloves garlic, mined
½ cup grated fontina cheese
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon pepper

Directions:
Preheat oven broiler.

Place potato cubes in a pot of cold water and bring to a boil. Cook over medium-high heat for about 8 minutes, until tender. Drain potato cubes and set aside.

In a medium bowl, whisk together eggs, cilantro and salt. Set aside.

Heat olive oil in a medium-sized ovenproof skillet. Cook garlic and onions for about 2 minutes, until softened and translucent. Add grated zucchini and cook for another five minutes. Add cooked potatoes, stirring occasionally, until they have browned, about 5 additional minutes.

Slowly pour egg mixture over vegetables. Cook over medium heat, tilting pan to evenly distribute eggs. Top with grated cheese and bacon pieces. Transfer to broiler and cook for about 5 minutes, until eggs begin to puff up.

Remove and serve.

Thank you all for replying. It's good to know that it's not just me. It gives me (and hopefully the other noobs) some comfort to know that it's normal for the ups and downs to happen. I keep trying to tell myself to be patient with it but it's so hard to be able to look down the road further than...

Thank you for your reply. I did make sure to keep eating gluten before getting tested. I'm still unsure whether or not I should ask my doctor to run the rest of the tests in the celiac panel.

LOL, re: trousers vs. pants. Here in the US, trousers are a specific kind of pants/slacks, with a looser fit and often with pleats in the front. I also read that Vit D helps digestion; can't recall the links, but likely within Gundry's writings about lectin. My Dr. just told me to res...

I'd try the gluten free diet for a few months to see if that helps at all. Can't hurt. If it doesn't help I'd try a low FODMAP meat and veggies diet.

A good amount of the neurological effects from celiac are also related to nutrient deficiencies caused by malabsorbtion from damaged intestines and the fact that most gluten-free foods are not fortified and your net eating many grains. You sound good about the CC and everything and seem to be tak...
