Ingredients

  • 8 Eggs
  • 2 Large handfuls fresh baby spinach
  • 1 Cup yellow onion, diced
  • 1 Cup green bell pepper, diced
  • 1/2 Cup mushrooms, sliced or chorizo for the non-vegetarian version (2 links)
  • 2 Tablespoon goat cheese
  • 3/4 Cup heavy cream
  • Salt, pepper, garlic powder, oregano, rosemary (all to taste)
  • 2 or 3 Dashes hot sauce

Preparation

Step 1:

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Dice your onion and peppers into small cubes (or slices if you prefer), place into a pan with a small amount of olive oil and cook on medium heat until almost fork tender.

Step 2:

Next, roughly chop your spinach and slice your mushrooms (or pre-cooked chorizo) and add into the same pan. Cook until spinach is slightly wilted. Remove from heat and cool.

Step 3:

Combine your eggs, heavy cream, a few dashes of hot sauce (to taste) and your seasonings (again, to preference and taste) in a large bowl. Whip until ingredients are incorporated. Add your cooled and cooked vegetable mixture to the bowl and stir to combine all ingredients.

Step 4:

Pour into a greased casserole dish and cook in the oven for 45-50 minutes, or until the center has set all the way through.

Step 5:

Remove and let it rest for 10-15 minutes.

Step 6:

Place a cookie sheet on top of the casserole dish, hold firmly, and using oven mitts, flip frittata onto cookie sheet. Now, place a serving platter on top of the frittata pressing firmly to the cookie sheet and flip again to turn it right side up (for presentation of course).

Step 7:

Slice into sections and garnish with fresh parsley.
