Spinach Frittata

Spinach Frittata-perfect for the whole family

Looking for a new egg dish or a way to incorporate spinach into your menu this week? Try this simple Spinach Frittata.  It is yummy and sure to be a hit with the whole family. 

  • Spray the bottom of a pie pan with non-stick spray.  Sprinkle 2 T. wheat germ (or bread crumbs) in the bottom of the pan. 
  • Combine together in a bowl: 2 T. wheat germ, 3/4 c. cheddar cheese, 1 8  package of frozen chopped spinach thawed and squeezed (to drain out the water), 1 cup cottage cheese, 3 beaten eggs, 1 T. olive oil, 1 t. nutmeg, 1/4 cup Parmesan cheese, and a dash of salt/pepper. 
  • Place mixture in pie pan. Sprinkle with 1/4 c. cheddar cheese.
  • Bake at 350 for 45 minutes. 

Too cute not to share. Eli's first real eggs. He didn't actually eat them but later loved the frittata. I must be quite the boring breakfast date because I was sitting right next to him talking when he fell asleep like this!

You can add additional spices or green peppers if you like.  I left them out so Elijah could enjoy it too (which he did). 🙂  It tasted great as is.
