All-American Frittata

What can be better than eggs, bacon and cheese?  Nothing really, but putting them all together in a 75 year old iron skillet makes them fabulous!  This is one of our favorite quick meals.  It takes only minutes to pull together, 10 minutes in the oven and it makes use of those bits and pieces hiding in the refrigerator.
