Spinach & Cheese Frittata

A few weeks ago, several friends and their little guys came over for brunch.  I threw together this super easy egg casserole dish and called it a frittata just to feel more posh than we really are.  And since my meal planning skills have been rather subpar as of late, you will most likely find this on our dinner table more nights than I'd like to admit.

Also, just to note, this frittata includes spinach and cheese, but you get so much fancier with things like diced tomatoes, mushroom slices, etc.  Be sure to come back and share any variations you may add.  One other quick side note. . . depending on how egg-y or vegetable-y you like your frittatas, you can add up to 6 more eggs to this recipe and just adjust the baking time a bit longer.  Okay.  On to the actual recipe. . .
Spinach & Cheese Frittata 
// serves 4-6 //

6 eggs
1 small onion, diced
1 1/2 c fresh spinach
1 c shredded cheese
salt

Beat eggs in a medium bowl and stir in remaining ingredients.  Bake uncovered at 375* for about 20-30 minutes or until knife comes out clean from the center of the frittata.  Serve immediately.  Preferably with bacon and cinnamon rolls alongside. haha

  2. So, now I know what I'm making for breakfast tomorrow! ;) I've shied away from making any baked egg dishes for too long- I always have this fear (phobia?) that they won't be cooked in the middle before the guys have to leave, and I'll have to send dad + brother off to work on empty stomachs. Too much stress for a very early morning! But come on, four ingredients? I think I can handle that!!


    Thank you thank you for more delightful inspiration, dear Nicole!! Big {hugs} sent your way!!!

  3. I make something just like this for quick, ready-made breakfasts, especially on Sunday mornings. It is super delish with Feta cheese. The feta & spinach meld together so well. I've also thrown in tomatoes, green peppers and bacon at different times and it always comes out super yummy. And for a bit of a twang I've added buttermilk to the eggs when beating them.

  8. I love making frittatas too! They are so easy, and they're such a good way to sneak in all the veggies in the fridge!

  9. Seeing as the dish was empty when I came back into the kitchen, I'd say it was a smashing success! <3
