Spinach Goat Cheese Fritatta

Ingredients

  • 1 medium sweet onion, diced
  • 5 1/2 teaspoons olive oil, divided
  • 1 package frozen spinach, thawed and drained
  • 4 ounces crumbled goat cheese
  • 6 eggs
  • 4 egg whites
  • 2 tablespoons skim milk
  • 1/2 teaspoon fresh ground black pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon  salt

How-To

  1. In a 10″ skillet, sauté the onions with 1 teaspoon of olive oil.
  2. Meanwhile, in a large bowl, beat the eggs, egg whites, milk, pepper and salt together.
  3. Stir in the sautéed onion, spinach, and goat cheese.
  4. Coat the pan with 1 1/2 tablespoons olive oil, covering the bottom and sides.
  5. Pour the mixture into the skillet and cook on low-medium heat until the sides and the majority of the mixture is cooked (15-20 minutes). You can test this by gently shaking the pan to see if it giggles. You want about 2″ of the sides to be moderately firm. It’s okay if the middle is still a bit giggly.
  6. Put the skillet in the oven on a low broil until the top is golden brown and the fritatta doesn’t giggle any more (10-15 minutes).
  7. Serve it up!

    1. Haha…thanks Jenn! And the beauty of this recipe is that you could always substitute another cheese for the goat cheese. 🙂

    1. Haha…that just makes you the ‘better man’. I just have a sissy stomach that couldn’t handle such complex flavors first thing in the morning. 😉
