Ingredient Notes

  • Eggs: Eggs are the main ingredient and provide the base for the frittata, creating a light and fluffy texture.
  • Cream: Cream adds richness and creaminess to the frittata, enhancing its overall flavor and texture. You can use heavy cream or a lower-fat alternative, depending on your preference.
  • Salt: Salt is essential for enhancing the flavors in the dish, so season to taste. Consider using kosher or sea salt for a more balanced seasoning.
  • Black Pepper (ground): Ground black pepper adds a subtle heat and complements the other flavors in the frittata. Freshly ground black pepper is recommended for the best flavor.
  • Cherry Tomatoes (quartered): Cherry tomatoes bring a burst of freshness and a slightly sweet tang to the frittata. Look for ripe and vibrant tomatoes for the best results.
  • Spinach (chopped): Chopped spinach not only contributes a vibrant green color to the frittata but also adds a dose of earthy flavor and a nutrient boost. Fresh spinach is preferable, but you can also use frozen, thawed spinach that has been drained.
  • Vegetable Oil: A small amount of vegetable oil is used to prevent sticking and ensure the frittata slides easily out of the skillet. You can choose any neutral-flavored vegetable oil, like olive oil, canola or grapeseed oil.

How To Make Spinach Frittata

Get the complete ingredients list and instructions from the recipe card below.

  1. Break eggs in a large bowl and mix. 
  2. Add in in the rest of the ingredients.
  3. Pour the frittata mixture into the cast iron skillet and allow to cook on medium heat until the frittata starts to set. 
  4. Transfer the pan to the grill and cook the top of the frittata until it is set on top and slightly golden.

Tips For Success

  • Use a non-stick skillet or a well-seasoned cast iron skillet for easy removal and to prevent the spinach frittata from sticking.
  • When adding the ingredients to the skillet, spread them out evenly to ensure uniform distribution and even cooking.
  • Be mindful of cooking times. Avoid overcooking the egg frittata, as it may become dry. The frittata should be just set on top but still slightly moist in the center.
  • If you’re unsure whether the breakfast frittata is cooked through, you can insert a knife or toothpick into the center. It should come out mostly clean with a few moist crumbs attached.
  • Allow the frittata to rest for a few minutes before slicing, as this will make it easier to cut and maintain its shape.

Delicious Variations

  • Cheesy Spinach Frittata: Add shredded cheddar, mozzarella, goat cheese or feta cheese for an extra creamy and cheesy frittata. Sprinkle the cheese on top of the frittata mixture before baking.
  • Mushroom and Spinach Frittata: Sauté sliced mushrooms with garlic and onions until they’re tender, and then add them to the frittata mixture for a delightful earthy flavor.
  • Smoked Salmon and Spinach Frittata: Fold in smoked salmon slices for a luxurious and savory frittata. It pairs perfectly with the baby spinach.
  • Italian Sausage Frittata: Brown Italian sausage and add it to the frittata mixture for a hearty, protein-packed twist.
  • Roasted Red Pepper and Spinach Frittata: Roast red bell peppers until they’re slightly charred, then slice them into thin strips and add them to the frittata.
  • Spinach and Artichoke Frittata: Combine chopped marinated artichoke hearts with spinach for a Mediterranean-inspired frittata.
  • Bacon and Spinach Frittata: Cook crispy bacon, crumble it, and sprinkle it over the frittata mixture before baking.

Prep and Storage

  • Prep Ahead: You can prepare the Spinach Frittata in advance and store it in the refrigerator for 3-4 days. Reheat in the microwave or oven until hot.
  • Store: To store leftovers, allow the frittata to cool, cut it into portions, and place them in an airtight container or wrap them in plastic. It can be stored in the refrigerator for 3-4 days.
  • Freeze: If you want to freeze portions, wrap them in plastic and place them in a resealable freezer bag. This method preserves the frittata for up to 2-3 months. Reheat frozen slices in the oven, covered with foil, for 25-30 minutes at 350°F, or in the microwave at medium power for 2-4 minutes per slice.


What is a frittata?

A frittata is quite similar to an omelette, in that it is cooked eggs with additional ingredients such meats, cheeses and vegetables.  Whereas an omelette is cooked quickly and then folded in half to enclose the ingredients, a frittata is cooked at a slower rate, then either turned over completely, grilled, or baked to finish cooking the top.

Can I use different vegetables in this frittata?

Absolutely, feel free to use your favorite vegetables like bell peppers, mushrooms, or zucchini.

Can I use milk instead of cream in the recipe?

Yes, you can substitute milk for the cream, but using cream results in a richer and creamier texture.

Can I double the recipe for a larger crowd?

Yes, you can easily double or triple the ingredients to make a larger frittata. Just use a larger pan and adjust the cooking time accordingly.

Is a frittata the same as a quiche?

No, a frittata doesn’t have a crust like a quiche, making it a lower-carb option. Some might also call it a crustless quiche!

Do I have to use cherry tomatoes?

While cherry tomatoes add a burst of flavor and color, you can use regular tomatoes or sun-dried tomatoes if you prefer.
