Ingredients
  • 2 cups baby spinach
  • 2 cups sliced mushrooms (I'm using baby Bella)
  • 3 eggs
  • 2 streaks green onion
  • 1 tbsp butter
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • salt and black pepper to taste
Instructions
  1. Heat oven to 350 F (175C). If you are cooking it on the stove, set a saucepan over medium to low heat. Spread butter over the pan, so the frittata doesn't stick.
  2. Beat eggs in a bowl and season with salt and pepper.
  3. Heat a pan over medium heat and add butter and mushrooms. Cook until water disappears. Add spinach and cook until it has wilted down. Season with some salt to taste.
  4. Remove from heat and mix with the eggs. Add green onion.
  5. Pour into an greased oven safe dish / pan and and add cheese and bake for 15-20 minutes in the oven. If you are cooking on the stove, make sure you cover the pan with a lid, which will help the frittata to cook evenly. Do not over cook.
  6. Serve with sliced tomatoes or salsa.
