Spinach Frittata with Green Salad

  • servings: 1

Ingredients

  • 1 large egg plus 2 large egg whites
  • 2 tablespoons grated aged cheese, such as Gruyere
  • 2 teaspoons whole milk
  • Coarse salt and ground pepper
  • 1 teaspoon extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1/2 small shallot, minced
  • 1 1/2 cups baby spinach
  • Nonstick cooking spray
  • 2 cups salad greens
  • 1/4 teaspoon cider, sherry, or red-wine vinegar

Cook's Note

You can add fresh herbs, chopped cooked vegetables, or cubed ham to this lightened-up frittata.

Directions

  1. Step 1

    Place a 1-cup ovenproof baking dish on a rimmed baking sheet and place in oven; preheat oven to 450 degrees. While oven is heating, whisk together egg and egg whites, 1 tablespoon cheese, milk, teaspoon salt, and pinch of pepper. In a small skillet, heat teaspoon oil over medium; add shallot and cook until softened, about 2 minutes. Add spinach; cook until wilted, about 2 minutes. Season with salt and pepper. Stir spinach into egg mixture.

  2. Step 2

    Remove heated dish from oven and coat with cooking spray. Immediately pour in egg mixture and top with 1 tablespoon cheese. Bake until frittata is puffed up and golden brown, about 15 minutes. Toss greens with vinegar and 3/4 teaspoon oil; season with salt and pepper. Serve frittata with salad.

    Ditch the salt, wayyyy too much it HAD to have been a type-O. Season with salt and pepper to your liking is what i'm sure they meant to say..(haha). Delicious though, and super easy!

    HEY MARTHA STEWART PEOPLE DO YOU EVER READ THESE REVIEWS? TOOOOO SALTY. Some people don't check all the comments and there is a huge mistake in the instructions. TOO MUCH SALT. PLEASE CHANGE NOW. I had to eat it anyways since I can't afford to throw out good ingredients. It might be good but who can tell when you can't taste the cheese eggs or spinach? No stars yet!

    This was so salty that my husband and I could not eat it. There must be a misprint in this recipe. Very disappointing.

    This was really easy to whip up and tasty, but I found the teaspoon of salt the recipe called for was way to salty! I will scale back on the sodium, I think 1/8 tsp would work for my taste.

    Not sure why most of my previous comment didn't show up. What I meant to say was that I agree that this was very easy
