Savory Rosemary and Mushroom Frittata

Frigid winter nights and lazy shopping habits call for an easy dinner during the week. Eggs are among my most favorite ingredients, primarily because I can eat them for any meal of the day.  If you have the ability to purchase local eggs, I highly recommend it.  You will immediately notice the difference when cracking them open.  Local fresh eggs, and most store bought organic eggs, will have a noticeably deeper yellow-orange color to the yolk.  This is actually a very good thing, the deeper color means these chickens were fed healthy ingredients, which means their eggs are densely packed with nutrients. Enjoy this tonight and reheat for lunch tomorrow!

Savory Rosemary and Mushroom Frittata

Serves: 2 (with leftovers)

Ingredients:

  • 1-2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 small onion, thinly sliced
  • 1 package button mushrooms, thinly sliced
  • 2 tablespoons fresh rosemary sprigs
  • 2 cups baby spinach
  • 6 eggs, beaten
  • cheddar cheese
  • salt & pepper

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 375 and heat an oven-proof skillet on medium heat.  Add the olive oil and onions and sauté for 3-5 minutes.
  2. Add the mushrooms and sauté for another 3-5 minutes, stirring frequently. Once the mushrooms are toasted brown and soft, add the fresh rosemary and stir.
  3. Add the baby spinach and stir well until the leaves become slightly soft.
  4. Add the eggs to the pan and swirl to let the mixture flow through to the bottom. Sprinkle with a pinch of salt and pepper.
  5. Top the egg mixture with the cheese.  Lower the heat to medium-low and let the eggs cook for 2-3 minutes.
  6. Swirl the pan and place into the oven.  Bake for another 5-6 minutes until eggs are set.
  7. Top with parsley, scallion, and avocado. Serve with roasted vegetables and toast.
