No matter how busy you are, you should never skip breakfast since it is the most important meal of the day. You should not settle for anything less either. Instead, make sure that you eat a nutritious meal as you start your day.
Be it a weekend brunch or an early weekday breakfast, this Spinach Frittata is an excellent option. It is quick and easy, not to mention the health benefits that come with spinach as well as eggs. It’s the perfect egg dish, indeed!
When making a frittata, remember to cook it on low. Eggs love gentle heat. They retain their moisture that way.
Now, this Spinach Frittata recipe requires chopped-up baby spinach, Parmesan cheese, and goat cheese. You can also add some sun-dried tomatoes to add more flavors to it, and, of course, to increase its nutritional value. But if you are not so much into sun-dried tomatoes, no worries, you can omit them.
What about if you don’t have goat cheese? Well, you can simply replace it with gruyere, jar, cheddar, or even Mozzarella. Using any of these will give you a delicious Spinach Frittata.Print
This Spinach Frittata makes a lovely breakfast meal. It is also an excellent option for brunch, lunch, or even a light dinner. Stuffed with baby spinach or regular spinach with delicious cheeses, your meal will certainly be more delightful than you think. Plus, it is super healthy!
9 large eggs
2 tablespoons milk
1/3 c. Parmesan cheese (grated)
1/4 tsp. salt
1/8 tsp. freshly ground pepper
2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
1 c. onion (chopped)
1 large clove garlic (minced)
8 oz. fresh spinach (chopped)
2 oz. goat cheese
2 tablespoons sun-dried tomatoes (optional)
- Whisk together eggs, Parmesan cheese, and milk in a mixing bowl. Season with salt and pepper and then set aside.
- In a non-stick skillet on medium heat, heat olive oil. Add the onions and cook for about 4 to 5 minutes or until translucent.
- Add the garlic and sun-dried tomatoes and cook for 1 more minute.

- Once the spinach has wilted, spread the egg mixture evenly on the bottom of the pan.
- Pour the Parmesan mixture over the spinach and onions.
- Sprinkle goat cheese over the frittata.
- Reduce the heat and cover the pan. Cook the frittata for about 10 to 13 minutes or until all but the center is set.
- Preheat the broiler.
- Broil the frittata for about 3 to 4 minutes or until the top is golden.
- Remove from the oven and let cool for a few minutes.
- Cut into wedges and serve.
- You can use fresh baby or regular spinach.
- The sun-dried tomatoes can be omitted.
- Make sure to use an oven-proof skillet.
In case you are using frozen spinach, use about 4 oz. Defrost it and be sure to get rid of as much moisture as you can.
