Spinach & Potato Frittata


Great for any meal of the day, this frittata tastes even better the second day! You can make them in advance, store in the fridge and re-heat in the morning for a quick and healthy breakfast.

 

Start by peeling one white potato and dicing into fine pieces. Next, chop three green onion stocks and mince one garlic clove.


Heat a skillet with half a teaspoon of olive oil over medium and sauté potatoes, green onions and garlic until tender, approximately 10 minutes. Add sea salt and ground pepper to taste.

Next, chop two and a half cups of baby spinach. You can easily double the amount of spinach but this is all I had on hand. Add spinach to the skillet and heat up for an additional two to three minutes.


Transfer mixture into a greased (cooking spray) ceramic baking dish.


Whisk two large eggs and a quarter cup of skim or almond milk together in a bowl. Add to baking dish.



Top with two teaspoons of shredded asiago cheese.

Bake in the oven for 25 minutes at 350oF. 
Remove from oven, let sit for a few minutes before serving!
