There’s nothing more simple and sophisticated for breakfast and brunch than a simple frittata. This omelette for one is quick, easy and versatile. Follow these simple steps for a tasty way to start your day:
serves 1 hungry person
- 3 cups of fresh spinach
- 2 eggs
- 1 tbs olive oil
- 1/4 shredded cheese (I used a combination of shredded Swiss and Gruyere available prepackaged at Trader Joes.)
- sea salt and pepper to taste
Sautee spinach in a non-stick pan over medium-high heat with olive oil. Cover to steam. After about 3 minutes, remove lid and stir until spinach wilts and most of the excess water cooks away. Spread the cooked spinach evenly across the pan.
Lower heat on cooktop to medium-low, Whisk eggs together, and pour over spinach. Using a spatula, carefully move cooked egg away from the sides of the pan, and tip the pan to allow excess runny egg to move in. You want to have a very thin layer of uncooked egg on the top. Cover, and allow to steam over low heat for about 5 minutes. Remove lid, add cheese and recover to steam until cheese is melted. You can also do this under the broiler, but currently my oven is out of order. If broiling, keep an eye on it and take it out once the cheese is melted and bubbly brown.
