Breakfast Challenge: Easy Egg Frittata

This is a simple egg dish that can be changed and added to easily. It is a method more than a recipe. The options are endless! You can add different varieties of cheeses and veggies.


Be sure to use a frying pan that can go in the oven. If it has silicone-type handles you can wrap them with foil to protect them. Worst case scenario, you could cook the eggs part way and put them in a baking pan, or even just bake it in a baking pan.


Easy Egg Frittata


12 organic free-range eggs (more or less depending on family size)

1/4 cup finely chopped onion

1 lb. or more organic spinach, chopped finely (easier to get by the kids;-)

splash of milk or cream

1-2 cups shredded cheddar cheese

butter for pan

Salt and Pepper to taste


*Preheat oven to 350 degrees


*Crack and scramble the eggs in a bowl and add milk or cream. I let the children help with this.


*In a 12 inch or so frying pan, saute the onions until beginning to get translucent.


*Add finely chopped spinach and saute until pretty wilted.


*I add more butter to help with sticking, (might not be necessary) then add egg mixture and stir to scramble the eggs until they are half cooked.


*Stir in most of the cheese, and sprinkle the rest on top and place in preheated 350 degree oven.


*Bake until eggs are set and cheese is melty and beginning to brown.


This is my best attempt to write a recipe. I am notorious for not following recipes and making things up as I go along. If this does not make sense, please ask for clarification. Also, maybe do a search for frittata recipes and either make your own or read a 'professional' recipe!! ;-) Actually, here is a link for 'how-to' frittata, maybe that will help if you are completely unfamiliar with making them.

I have a similiar recipe. I add different veggies to it, depending on what is in season. So yummy!

My daughter blogged today's breakfast. But, I gotta tell you she was a little disappointed that you didn't post a tutorial video! LOL!
