Eggs have definitely become my go-to breakfast option as of recent. I’ve noticed that eating a balanced diet rich in protein and healthy fats is the best prevention for unnecessary cravings throughout the day.

The combination of eggs, spinach, and a little cheese is one of my personal favorites because it keeps me full throughout the day.

You’ll also need a 8-12 eggs (per your preference), some milk, and some cheese for this recipe. To make your frittata dairy-free, you can skip the milk and cheese from the recipe entirely.

instructions for making the best spinach mushroom frittata, including sautéing veggies, then adding them to the egg mixture in a large pot for baking

instructions

Equipment needed: baking dish (I used a 9-inch, round dish)

  1. Add two tablespoons of olive oil to a large skillet or pot along with the chopped onion and sliced mushroom.
  2. Cook over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until the onion is transparent and the mushrooms are tender.
  3. Add the chopped spinach and stir until tender. Remove the pan from the heat.
  4. In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the eggs with the salt, black pepper, cheddar cheese, and parmesan cheese. Mix until everything is well-combined.
  5. Fill a baking dish halfway with your mixture. I bake in a 9-inch oven-safe pan.
  6. Bake for 25 to 30 minutes at 350 degrees Fahrenheit, or until the frittata is totally set and pleasantly browned on top.

tips

How to get a golden brown top crust

Try adding the cheese at the end as to not over bake the frittata. If you like an extra golden top, set your oven to broil for a few minutes at the end. Be careful though, you don’t want to burn the frittata.

Make an extra creamy frittata

Many frittata recipes include dairy to add creaminess. For keto and low carb diets, we omit the milk and instead use extra cheese for this recipe. Try your favorite cheeses and customize!

Prepare the egg fillings ahead of time

Be sure to sauté veggies ahead of time. You’ll want them full of flavor in the frittata.

And, if you’re using leftover chorizo, steak or other sausage that’s fine. Veggies, like tomatoes, mushrooms, and onions should be sliced into small pieces, cooked, and drained before adding to the egg mixture.

After enjoying something similar at a cafe last week, I found your recipe to make my own. There is a photo of six eggs, somewhere in the article you mention a dozen (yes I do know what that means) and the actual recipe card at the end of the post does not specify any eggs at all. So how many please? I can't wait to make it.

Hi Jane, I used 8 eggs because I like my frittata with more veggies, but you can use up to 12 depending on your preference. I have updated the recipe card. Thanks for letting me know!
