Spinach and Feta Frittata

We discovered  Spinach and Feta Frittata many years ago. Since then we have served regularly to guests and friends. It is a great breakfast or brunch dish and is a fantastic cold slice for picnics.

We met our first Frittata whilst on holiday many years ago at a little guest house just outside Napier in the Hawks Bay area of New Zealand. We were attending the 1996 Mission Estate Winery Concert. Shirley Bassey was topping the bill and it was the most wonderful evening under the starts with some great wine and a fabulous picnic.

This is a really handy dish to have in your repertoire as its a great way of using up surplus vegetables from previous meals or to get inventive with flavors and textures.

Spinach and Feta Frittata is a favorite.

  • 8 Large Eggs
  • 1 Tsp Whole Grain Mustard
  • 1/2 Cup Parmesan Cheese Grated

Instructions

1

In a solid frying pan heat your oil and add your onions, garlic, and mushrooms and sauté until lightly brown

Reduce the heat and add your spinach till it wilts

3

In the meantime add all your other ingredients to a bowl and whisk till all combined and slightly frothy

4

Add your liquid to the frying pan and mix well together then allow to solidify over low heat.

5

Here is the trick with Frittata. Keep moving your pan from the stove to under the grill so that the top solidifies and browns under the grill.

6

Now back to the stove top to ensure the liquid is cooked through

7

Allow to rest for a few minutes - slice through and serve

Wine Matching

It has to be Prosecco or a light refreshing white or a really good quality Coffee.
