Wow your family or friends with this tasty frittata. It tastes gourmet but is easy to make!
Ingredients:
3 egg yolks
6 egg whites
1 10-ounce package chopped frozen spinach, thawed and drained
2 garlic cloves, chopped
1 tsp Italian seasoning
Salt and pepper to taste
˝ cup crumbled feta
1 small tomato, chopped
3 green onions, chopped
2 tsp olive oil
Directions:
1 In a large mixing bowl, whisk the eggs until they are evenly blended. Whisk in the garlic, Italian seasoning, salt and pepper. Set the mixture aside.
2 Heat a 10-inch ovenproof nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add the spinach to the skillet and sauté it over high heat for 3 minutes, stirring occasionally.
3 Add the tomato and scallions to the skillet and sauté the vegetables until they are soft but not mushy, about 2 to 3 minutes. Add the olive oil to the skillet stir it into the vegetables. Use a fork to loosely arrange the vegetables in an even layer in
4 Whisk the egg mixture again, then slowly pour it over the vegetables, covering the entire surface. Do not stir the mixture. Instead, gently shake the pan to help settle the egg. Cook the frittata over medium heat for 4 minutes without disturbing it.
5 Sprinkle the feta cheese evenly over the top of the frittata. Place the pan under the broiler about 8 inches from the heat source and broil the frittata for about 2 minutes.
6 Remove the pan from the oven and poke a fork in the center of the frittata to see if it's done. If you see liquid egg around the fork, place the pan back under the broiler for another 45 to 60 seconds. When the frittata is done, transfer the pan to a cool
7 Let the frittata cool in the pan for 5 minutes, then carefully slide a flexible spatula around the edge to loosen it. Once it's free, gently lift the frittata with the spatula, tilt the pan, and slide it onto a large serving plate. Let it cool at least
8 ENJOY!
