Roasted Tomato and Spinach Frittata Recipe

Easy and Delicious Roasted Tomato and Spinach Frittata Recipe with Parmesan Cheese



The holiday season can be full of gatherings and delightful feasts. At the same time, the idea of making impressive dishes for your festive spread might seem overwhelming but fear not. Baking a frittata is a breeze, requiring only uncomplicated ingredients-perfect for gatherings, whether hosting a large crowd or an intimate family affair.


One of the most significant advantages of incorporating frittatas into your holiday menu is their make-ahead convenience. Unlike some dishes that demand last-minute attention, frittatas can be prepared in advance, allowing you to spend less time in the kitchen and more time cherishing moments with family and friends. Frittatas will stay good in the refrigerator for 3-4 days.


Imagine waking up on a holiday morning, knowing that a scrumptious breakfast or brunch is just a few steps away from being served. Frittatas can be prepped the night before, stored in the refrigerator, and then effortlessly reheated or served at room temperature. This not only reduces stress but also ensures everyone starts the day with a hearty, homemade meal.



What Is A Frittata?

 

A frittata is an Italian dish that's essentially an egg-based omelet or crustless quiche. It's made by whisking eggs and then mixing them with various ingredients such as vegetables, cheese, or meats. The mixture is then cooked slowly on the stove top or baked in the oven until set. Frittatas are versatile, allowing for creativity with ingredients, and they're an excellent option for a quick and hearty meal. Frittatas are so easy to make you can easily whip up two or three at the same time.



Frittatas are a favorite for their easy preparation, utilizing leftover veggies and cheeses, creating a hearty and affordable option ideal for brunch or breakfast. Consider substituting spinach or tomatoes with zucchini, eggplant, mushrooms, or broccoli.

Spice it up with red bell peppers, sweet pepper rings, or jalapeños. Explore various cheese options like feta, goat cheese, pecorino, romano, sharp cheddar, or pepper jack.


Helpful Tips

This easy-to-make roasted tomato and spinach frittata brings delicious results without the mess. For easy cleanup, line a cookie sheet with parchment paper before roasting the veggies.


An effective tip is to opt for brick cheese and shred it yourself. Pre-shredded cheese in plastic bags often contains preservatives to prevent clumping. Give this simple tip a try, and you'll likely notice a significant improvement in the melt and creaminess of the cheese.


Ingredients

 Cast iron skillet or 9-inch round pie dish

  • 9 Eggs

  • 1 Onion finely chopped

  • 1 Garlic Clove minced

  • 1 cup fresh Spinach

  • 1 cup Cherry Tomatoes halved

  • 3/4 cup Parmesan cheese

  • 1 tablespoon Olive Oil

  • 1 teaspoon Basil

  • 1/2 teaspoon Salt

  • 1/4 teaspoon Black Pepper

Directions

1. Preheat the oven to 425 degrees and coat a 9-inch round pie pan with cooking spray or crisco. In a large bowl, combine tomatoes, spinach, onions, garlic, olive oil, 1/2 sp salt, and 1/4 tsp pepper.


2. Roast the vegetables on a parchment paper-lined baking sheet for approximately 20 minutes, turning halfway, until golden and tender. Set the veggies aside and reduce oven temperature to 350 degrees.


3. Transfer the roasted vegetables to the prepared pan, top with basil, and set aside. In a bowl, whisk together eggs, cheese, and a dash of salt, and pepper. Pour the mixture over the vegetables. Bake uncovered for about 25 minutes. The top of the frittata should be golden brown. If you'd like to use a thermometer the internal temperature should be 165 degrees.


Cast Iron Skillet

To prepare the roasted tomato frittata in a cast iron skillet, use the identical ingredients and steps. Instead of roasting the veggies separately, sauté them in the cast iron skillet, then pour the egg mixture over the veggies and bake as usual.


As you plan your holiday gatherings, consider the convenience and versatility that frittatas bring to the table. By embracing this make-ahead dish, you can savor the joy of the season without sacrificing precious moments with family and friends. Cheers to stress-free celebrations and memorable meals!
