Easy Brunch Recipe - Spinach and Cheese Fritata

Wednesday, September 12, 2012

A brunch isn't a brunch without a fritata! I decided to make one with spinach since I love spinach, and I know it's not something too strong tasting (in case someone doesn't like spinach). This way I am safe!

Spinach and Cheese Fritata
Prep time: 30 min        Cook Time: 30 min           Yield: 1 pie

Ingredients
- 1 lb. fresh spinach, cleaned and chopped
- 8 eggs
- 1 onion, finely chopped

- Seasoned salt to taste


Directions
1. Preheat oven to 450°F.
2. In large nonstick skillet, fry onions and peppers on medium heat until tender, about 3 minutes. Add uncooked spinach. Fry until the spinach leaves are fully wilted, about 5 minutes.
3. In a mixing bowl, beat eggs and milk. Add seasoned salt to taste.
4. In a greased pie dish, pour the spinach. Add the egg mixture and stir until everything is combined and ingredients are distributed evenly.
5. Add the cheese, sprinkling it evenly on the top. Transfer dish in heated oven and bake for 15 minutes or until eggs are fully cooked.
6. Once baked, let cool slightly. Serve with buttered toast and slices of seasoned tomatoes. To season tomatoes: sprinkle sliced tomatoes with dried parsley flakes and salt.
