Source: Everyday Food, January/February 2011


  • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 small yellow onion, thinly sliced (1 cup)
  • 2 cups frozen spinach (from two 10-ounce packages), thawed and squeezed dry
  • Coarse salt and ground pepper
  • 8 large eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1/2 cup crumbled cooked bacon (5 slices)


  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees. In a 10-inch ovenproof nonstick skillet, heat oil over medium-high. Add onion and spinach, season with salt and pepper, and cook until onion is translucent, about 5 minutes.

  2. Add eggs and bacon, season with salt and pepper, and stir to combine. Cook, undisturbed, until edges are set, about 2 minutes. Transfer skillet to oven and bake until top of frittata is just set, 10 to 13 minutes. Invert or slide frittata onto a plate and cut into 6 wedges. Serve warm or at room temperature.

Cook's Notes

The frittata will appear to be mostly liquid on top when you transfer it to the oven, but as long as the edges are set, the eggs will finish cooking evenly.

    Decided to try and make this for a Saturday morning brunch, and it was a BIG hut with my bacon-obsessed husband!! Perfect medley of onions, spinach & of course bacon. Will be making this again very soon.

    This was not good. Tasted too spinachy (is that a word?).
