 1.     Preheat the oven to 160ºC/320ºF.

2.     Whisk eggs and add a big splash of whole milk. Add salt and pepper.

3.     Chop bacon into small chunks and fry in a deep-set pan. Once it is crispy, add the spinach, and allow it to wilt (this should only take a minute or so).

4.     When bacon is crispy, and spinach wilted, add the eggs. Turn down the heat. Drop in ¾ of the ricotta, in dollop sized pieces.

5.     After around 8 minutes, or until the sides are cooked, take pan off the heat and put into the oven for a further 10 minutes.

6.     Toast your sourdough slices.

7.     Take frittata out of oven.

8.     Add leftover ricotta to serve.
