What Is A Frittata?

A Frittata is an egg-based dish from Italy that is similar to an omelette or crustless quiche as it is filled with things like various vegetables, cheeses, and meats.

If you are looking for a simple and delicious way to feed a larger crowd, making a frittata is the solution! Packed with delicious aromatics and veggies, your family and guests will absolutely love this for breakfast.

How To Make A Frittata:

  1. Preheat your oven to 425˚F and prep your veggies. Pick through your spinach and give it a rough chop. Finely dice the onion, mince the garlic, and chop the sun dried tomatoes, which add delicious flavour to this frittata!
  2. Crack the eggs into a mixing bowl and add cream, salt, pepper, and 1/2 of your cheese. Give it a good whisk until the whites and yolks are combined.
  3. Once you have all your ingredients prepped and ready to go, you can heat up the oil in an oven safe, 10-inch pan over medium heat. Once the oil starts to shimmer, add the onion and cook until tender. Stir in the garlic and sun dried tomato and cook another 30 seconds. Add the spinach and cook for 1-2 minute until it is wilted. Salt and pepper to taste.
  4. When the veggies are cooked, add the egg mixture and stir until everything is evenly combined. Sprinkle with remaining cheese and bake for 10-12 minutes until the center no longer giggles. Top with fresh parsley and serve.

Can I Make Substitutions To This Spinach Frittata Recipe?

Yes! The great thing about an egg frittata is that you can adjust it and make it your own.

  • Want to add some more protein? Toss in some ham, sausage, or bacon.
  • Have other veggies in your fridge that are on their last leg that you want to use up? Swap them for half the spinach or all of it.
  • Don’t care for goat cheese? Use cheddar cheese, Monterey Jack cheese, pepper jack cheese, swiss…

What if I don’t have an oven safe pan? No worries! Grease a 9 inch cake pan or 9×9 inch baking dish and after your veggies are done cooking, spread them in the bottom of the pan and pour the eggs over the top. Stir until everything is evenly dispersed and then bake. You may need to add 2-3 more minutes since the dish was not already hot.
