When it’s cold outside, a warm breakfast is just what you need to start the day. The Spinach and Goat Cheese Frittata is a great weekend or brunch breakfast. The simple ingredients combine for a wonderful flavor. Serve this with toast or fresh fruit and the menu is complete. Stay warm!
- 10 large eggs
- ¼ cup milk
- ¼ teaspoon kosher or sea salt, or to taste
- ¼ teaspoon fresh cracked black pepper, or to taste
- 2 tablespoons butter, divided
- 3 cups fresh spinach leaves, tough stems removed
- 4 ounces goat cheese, crumbled
- (optional) serve with toast, fresh tomatoes or fresh fruit
Pre-heat oven to 425 degrees F.
In a large bowl, whisk together eggs, milk, salt, and black pepper.
Heat a 10” cast iron or ovenproof skillet on medium-high heat. Melt 1 tablespoon of butter, then add spinach leaves. Sauté spinach until wilted, about 1-2 minutes. Melt the remaining 1 tablespoon butter, then pour in the egg mixture. Stir egg mixture and cook untouched for about 20 seconds or until the sides begin to set. Gently gather in the sides of the cooked egg around edges of the pan with a heat-proof rubber spatula to let uncooked egg flow underneath. When the bottom of the eggs have set on the edges, add goat cheese on top.
Transfer the skillet into the oven and bake for about 15-20 minutes, or until the frittata is fluffy, light brown on top and the center is just set.
Serve warm with toast, fresh tomatoes or fresh fruit.
