How To Make A Simple and Delicious Frittata

BY BRYNN MCDOWELL

Frittatas are one of my secret weapons in the kitchen. They are pretty simple to make and hearty enough to enjoy for breakfast, lunch or dinner. As an added bonus, they are made almost entirely in the oven. Which means they are the perfect meal to prepare for brunch or get togethers because you don’t have to stand over the stove and ignore your guests.

A Frittata is an Italian dish that is similar to an omelet and crustless quiche.
One of my favorite recipes is this Spinach & Mushroom Frittata topped with Roasted Tomatoes.

Grab Your Ingredients

10 eggs

2 large handfuls spinach leaves

1/2 cup mushrooms, sliced

3 cloves garlic, grated or minced

1 tbsp olive oil

salt & pepper

2 tbsp fresh grated parmesan cheese

Optional Garnish – roasted cherry tomatoes

PREP YOUR FRITATA

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. In a large bowl, crack and whisk the eggs together. Set bowl aside.

Preheat a medium sized oven-safe pan (I use a cast iron skillet) over medium heat on the stove. Add 1 tbsp olive oil and add the mushrooms. Lightly sauté until soft, about 5 minutes. Add minced garlic and spinach leaves and cook for another 1-2 minutes, just until garlic is fragrant and spinach leaves are soft but not wilted.

Remove from heat and add the mushroom and spinach mixture to the bowl with your whisked eggs. Season with salt and pepper.

Add mixture back to oven safe pan and top with parmesan cheese.

BAKE AWAY

Place the frittata in the center rack in the oven and bake until eggs are just set, about 10-15 minutes. Once finished, move pan to top rack and broil for 2-3 minutes to lightly brown the cheese on top.

Remove from oven and allow to cool slightly before serving.

Optional Garnish – If you want to serve the frittata with roasted tomatoes, place tomatoes lightly drizzled with olive oil on a sheet pan in 350 degree oven for about 5-7 minutes.

Serving Suggestions

Frittatas are great for breakfast because they provide a good source of protein from the eggs. You can also make the frittata in advance and reheat before serving the following morning.

I love having Frittatas for dinner and typically just serve with a mixed green salad.

Feel free to customize this recipe to include your favorite veggies or even add sausage or ground turkey. A little sliced avocado on top also makes a great garnish!

We’ve been extremely lucky to be able to travel and while spending time in France, Italy and Greece, I became captivated by the Mediterranean lifestyle and diet.
