Spinach frittata 2

Yep! Spinach frittata again. It’s a favorite weekend breakfast dish in our family.  I made it last Sunday but didn’t have time to post it.  So, here it is. This time, with the right color and fluffiness. Try it for your Sunday breakfast.



  • 1/4 cup olive oil, ορ enough to cover the bottom of a big, heavy pan
  • 1 big onion or 5-7 shallots, chopped
  • 1 bag frozen spinach
  • 2 cubes frozen basil (I get mine from Trader Joe’s)
  • salt, pepper, oregano
  • 10 eggs, beaten
  • 1 cup grated Parmesan

How to make: Saute the onions for five minutes. Add the frozen spinach and basil and chaute for another five minutes or until the spinach is soft. Add salt, pepper, and oregano.  Mix the eggs with the Parmesan and add them to the pan. Stir well and let the food cook at low heat. When the edges are firm, place the pan under the broil for a few minutes to cook the top. Ready!
