Easy Weeknight Dinner - Frittata

February 23, 2010

This is one of my go to recipes for weeknight dinners.  I usually have the ingredients on hand and it’s easy to put together.


Spinach and Potato Frittata

2 T Olive Oil
6-8 small red potatoes, sliced 
2 cups torn fresh spinach
3 green onions, sliced
3 cloves garlic, chopped
~1/4 pound  Canadian bacon, diced (I’ve also used leftover bacon or sausage, both good!)
6 eggs, beaten
1/3 cup milk
1/2 cup shredded cheese
salt and pepper to taste,
crushed red pepper flakes to taste

Heat oil in large skillet over medium heat.  Add potatoes, cover and cook about 10 minutes until just tender.

add spinach and Canadian Bacon

Add spinach, green onions, garlic and Canadian bacon.  Season with salt and pepper.  Add pepper flakes for your desired level of heat.

Continue cooking while stirring for 2 minutes.


Add milk to beaten eggs and pour over mixture.  Sprinkle with cheese.  Reduce heat to low, cover and cook for 5-7 minutes.


When eggs are mostly set, place under broiler until top is nicely browned.
