An Amazing Spinach and Mushroom Frittata

6 Comments

I must admit that I had my first Frittata ever about a year ago.

I am usually the first person to enjoy a delicious egg-based brunch-inspired breakfast.
If you think of one delicious and impressive egg dish to serve to your brunch guests, I am sure that a Frittata would rank close to the top of the list.

It's not that a Frittata is difficult to make.

Sure, you have to start the Frittata on the stove and then finish it in the oven. That really is not so hard to do. But for many, this transfer of the pan, can be intimidating.


The important thing to remember about making the perfect Frittata is that it should NOT be over-cooked/baked.

Personally, I never want to see, eat or even smell an egg that has been over-cooked. But, when it comes to the Frittata, over-cooking/baking it can really ruin the taste of it.
The ideal Frittata has more of a soft or sponge-like interior. This way we can truly enjoy the taste of it.

And it's really about the cheese too.

I like a cheese with a good and deep taste that will also melt well. My go-to cheese for a Frittata is usually a shredded cheddar- extra sharp for my tastes. I will also add a complementary shredded cheese, such as a topping with shredded Parmesan or a mild mozzerella or Jack- depending on what vegetables I am adding.


What kind of a pan should you use for your Frittata?
I'm all about the caste iron skillet with this one. The cast iron skillet is about the perfect pan as it can go from stove to oven and heats/cooks evenly.


What should you put into your Frittata ?
I'm a veggie person. I like spinach, onions, and even mushrooms.
Some people will add bacon, sausage or even leftovers.
There is a lot that you can do with your Frittata once you master making it.

I have plenty of spinach in my refrigerator. I am going to pair the spinach with mushrooms and a soft Feta cheese and top it with Parmesan.

  5. I am a vegetarian so this is a great recipe for me too. I don't eat onions though but that is not such of a big problem for me.
