This recipe is naturally paleo, keto, and Whole30 friendly.
- Eggs-Obviously! I love getting my eggs locally. I always try to go for cage free, pasture raised.
- Mushrooms-Any kind of mushroom will work, but I like cremini mushrooms best. Be sure to wash them well. I even sometimes use a paper towel to get off excess dirt. I like to slice mine vs. cutting them. Note, that you do not have to exclude the stems! The stems have nutrients too.
- Spinach-This recipe allows you to sneak in the greens! Any greens will work, but I like spinach the best for this recipe.
- Avocado oil-To sautée the mushrooms, spinach and optional spinach and red pepper flakes.
Optional add ins-
- Red pepper flakes-My partner loves a nice kick!
- Breakfast sausage-I like the paleo breakfast sausage links from Costco. I like to dice them up real small and add them in.
How to make-
- First, sautée the mushrooms, spinach and any optional add ins in the avocado oil for 3-5 minutes on medium heat. Preheat the oven to 400.
- Next, whisk the eggs and pour in the pan.
- Bake for 20 minutes or until the eggs are cooked throughout.
Is this spinach mushroom frittata baked?
- Yes! I like to saute the mushrooms and spinach to start. This helps enhance the flavors. Then, I like to make it.
What is the best pan for a frittata?
- Always an oven safe one! This will allow you to be able to transfer the sauteed vegetables and optional add-ins into the oven. I like using a cast iron pan.
What is the difference between a frittata and a quiche?
- A quiche has a crust, a frittata is all egg.
What can you serve with a frittata?
- We love to serve fresh fruit and pancakes! I have two pancake recipes that I love.
How do you stop a frittata from sinking?
- The air and heat will cause the frittata to rise and expand. Taking the dish out of the oven will naturally cause it to sink a little.
