Foodie Friday ~ Fresh Herb with Spinach and Cheese Frittata

Driving home from work thinking what will I make for dinner........ As long as you have eggs and cheese you can always make a Frittata. So I just started taking food from the refrigerator and this is what I came up with. I especially love adding herbs from my garden to just about everything. The family loved it:)

Fresh Herb with Spinach and Cheese Frittata
Ingredients
  • 4 tablespoons butter
  • 1 package frozen chopped spinach, thaw under water and squeezed dry
  • 8 green onions, sliced
  • 1/2 cup grape tomatoes, sliced in half
  • 6 large eggs, beaten
  • 1 tablespoon each, fresh from the garden; sage, tarragon, thyme, oregano and basil - chopped
  • 1 cup grated Swiss cheese
  • 1 cup grated mild cheddar cheese
  • 1 small container Philadelphia chive and onion whipped cream cheese
  • salt and pepper to taste

Directions

In a cast iron skillet, melt the butter over medium heat. Add the spinach and onions and cook for 3 minutes.

In a mixing bowl, whisk the eggs until fluffy. Pour eggs into the skillet and cook until the bottom has set, about 5 minutes.

Add the tomatoes. Sprinkle herbs on top. Dot the cream cheese randomly and sprinkle with cheeses. Salt and pepper

Bake in a 350 degrees oven for 25 minutes. Cool for 5 minutes, then slice.

This looks and sounds wonderful! My favorite way to cook is looking around at what I have and start pulling out the pots and pans.

Welcome to Foodie Fridays, this was my first week also. Lovely blog!

Your frittata sounds delicious with all of those fresh herbs! I would have never thought of adding the Philly Chive and Onion either - what a great idea.
