I got this light recipe (perfect for a spring-time brunch) from Health Magazine, March 2007.
- 2 teaspoons olive oil
- 1⁄3 cup chopped vidalia onion
- 2 cups sliced mushrooms
- 4 cups packed baby spinach leaves or 4 cups torn swiss chard
- 2 large eggs
- 4 large egg whites
- 1⁄2 cup shredded smoked gouda cheese, divided
- 1⁄4 teaspoon salt
- 1⁄4 teaspoon black pepper
- cooking spray
- Preheat oven to 350°.
- Heat olive oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add onion; cook 2 minutes.
- Add mushrooms; cook, stirring frequently, 4 minutes or until the mushrooms are tender.
- Add spinach; cover and cook 1 minute or just until spinach is wilted.
- In a medium bowl, combine eggs, egg whites, 1/4 cup cheese, salt, and pepper; mix well.
- Add spinach mixture; mix well.
- Pour mixture into an 8-inch round cake pan coated with cooking spray.
- Sprinkle remaining 1/4 cup cheese over frittata.
- Bake 30 minutes or until eggs are set in center and cheese has melted.
- Cut into 4 wedges.
This is really tasty and so easy to make. I served it with a small green salad and toast for a nice, light dinner. I liked the smoked gouda better than parmesan that is usually called for in fritattas.
This frittata was excellent! The smoked gouda was a little expensive, but the taste really made the frittata special. I used baby spinach and did not chop or cut off the stems and it was fine. Served this with rolls and fresh fruit. Thanks, Carole in Orlando
