Simple Spinach Frittata Skillet

Perfect for Winter and especially the day after Christmas, this Simple Spinach Frittata will fast become your fave for weekend brunch.  

Simple because of the process and tasty because of the ingredients, you can whip this up and be enjoying it less than an hour after rising from your slumber.  

Serve it with toasty sourdough and fresh fruit! 

Here’s how to make Spinach Frittata

 

Start by adding a few teaspoons of extra virgin olive oil to a cast iron skillet.  If you don’t have one, you can always saute in a regular pan and then later transfer all the ingredients into a pie plate.

SIDE NOTE:  See that cute little sticker on my bottle?  That’s a sure fire way to make sure you are supporting our California growers!

 

Dice up a whole yellow onion and add to the heated olive oil and saute until soft and translucent

 

Add the baby spinach to the pan and continue to saute until wilted

 

Remove from heat and prepare the rest of the ingredients

 

Whisk the eggs, cream, cheese and salt & pepper

 

And pour right into the skillet, gently dispersing the ingredients evenly into the pan.  Bake for about 25 minutes until the frittata has puffed up and cooked through.  Remove from oven and allow the puffiness to subside

 

Serve immediately and enjoy!
