Quick Frittata

This makes enough for two people….


  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 2 shallots or 1/2 sweet onion sliced thin
  • 1 jalapeno sliced (optional)
  • 1 large tomato diced
  • 8 ounces sliced mushrooms
  • 2 large handfuls of fresh baby spinach
  • 4 large eggs beaten together
  • 1 ounce grated/sliced Swiss cheese
  • salt and pepper

Preparation Method:

  1. In a large frying pan saute the onions, jalapeno, and mushrooms until soft and slightly browned. Add the tomato, spinach and continue cooking until everything looks done. Add a little salt and pepper and mix well.
  2. Turn on your broiler/grill to high.
  3. Make sure everything is spread evenly over the base of the pan and then pour in the eggs making sure to move the pan around so everything is covered with the beaten eggs. Sprinkle the cheese over the top and let the bottom of the frittata cook for a couple of minutes.
  4. Give the pan a jiggle and when the eggs appear nearly set turn off the stovetop and place the frying pan under the broiler to cook the top.
  5. It will only take a couple of minutes so keep your eye on it. Once you see the top become golden brown and puff up take out – making sure you use an oven glove not to burn your hand on the hot handle – and put back on the top of the oven.
  6. Allow to cool and set for a couple of minutes before serving.  Divide into 4 portions and enjoy!

You can make this with any vegetables you enjoy eating, just make sure they are all about the same size so they cook evenly.
