The Tasty Spinach & Tomato Frittata

Hakuna Frittata – what a wonderful phrase. It’s quiche without a crust and a new family favorite…(which is anything tasty that mama can whip up super-fast).DSC_0967 We discovered the frittata this summer. We’ve eaten it for breakfast, brunch, lunch, and dinner. We’ve tried many variations of cheeses, always coming back to swiss. The frittata is so tasty, it was gobbled up in mere seconds by the ravenous darlings.

And it’s so easy, I’m happy to keep making it – though even the ravenous darlings could handle making it themselves.DSC_0453  As the weather turns colder, we start craving warmer breakfasts. With little time, you’ll want something quick, tasty, and comforting: que the frittata! It’s also incredibly healthy. Yes, my friends, we are WINNING at life!DSC_1118 You’ll begin with some butter in a cast-iron pan (or oven-safe fry pan), chopped onions, and spinach (fresh or frozen both work well).DSC_1119 Add whisked eggs, milk, cut tomatoes, shredded Swiss, salt and pepper – and you’re in frittata business. Let it cook on the stovetop until almost set – about 5 minutes.IMG_1371 Finish off in the oven, set on broil. In about five minutes you’ll have a gorgeous egg dish with beautiful color. Don’t you love pretty food?DSC_0421 Let’s admire the frittata for a moment. DSC_0436 Very nice, very nice (and it happens to taste amazing!)

Spinach and Tomato Frittata:

Ingredients:

2 Tablespoons Butter

1/2 Small Onion, finely chopped

2 Cups Baby Spinach

5 Large Eggs

1/2 Cup Whole Milk

Salt and Pepper

1 Cup Shredded Swiss Cheese

1 Cup Chopped Tomatoes

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to broil. In a medium bow, whisk together the eggs, milk, salt, and pepper. Fold in cheese and tomatoes. Set aside.
  2. In a medium cast iron skillet (or oven-safe frying pan) over medium heat, melt the butter. Add the onion and saute until softened, about 5 minutes.

Transfer the pan to the oven and broil until golden brown on top, about 5-7 minutes.

    Oh, that looks good! I think I have everything in my kitchen to make it tomorrow except the Swiss cheese. Although I do have a mix of Italian shredded cheese that would probably make a good substitute. Hmmmm …
