I frequently have eggs for breakfast, because they are quick to make and tasty. I usually just fry them up along with leftover veggies from the previous night’s dinner, but sometimes I want to make something more. This Spinach Tomato Frittata is the perfect vegetable frittata for breakfast or brunch.

What is a frittata?

Frittatas are a simple egg and vegetable dish that is started on the stove top and finished off in the oven. The most important thing to have for a frittata is an oven proof skillet, like a cast iron skillet or carbon steel frying pan. A frittata is made by sauteing some vegetables, adding well beaten eggs, and then baking the entire thing in the oven.

Breakfast Frittata

For this breakfast frittata I sauteed spinach, onions, peppers in a little bit of oil. Then I beat together eight eggs and poured them on top of the veggies. Instead of cutting up the tomatoes and mixing them with the other vegetables I sliced them thinly and layered them on top of the frittata after I added the eggs. The tomatoes stayed floating on top as the eggs baked, which made the entire dish look more elegant and pretty.

Frittatas are also great for days when you are having breakfast for dinner, because they are cheap to make and filling.  I usually make them for breakfast though, because then there will be leftovers I can heat up the next day.

  1. Eggs are such a good, inexpensive real food source of protein! I need to use them more often in dinner recipes. I think I could pull this one off as a dinner… at least I’m going to try!
