Spinach Artichoke Frittata - this frittata pairs a classic combination with Gruyere and Parmesan cheeses and a touch of fresh lemon. Serve for breakfast, brunch, or a light lunch.
Spinach and artichoke is a classic combination that is probably best known for its role in a famous dip. I love these flavors, so I'm always looking for ways to enjoy spinach and artichoke together. Adding them to a frittata seems like an obvious choice.
What is a Frittata?
A frittata is basically a quiche without a crust. Started on the stovetop and finished in the oven, frittatas can include assorted veggies, breakfast meats, and cheeses. Add beaten eggs and bake until set. A non-stick skillet is a must to ensure that the finished frittata will slide right out of the pan. Then, slice and serve.
Frittatas are the perfect way to use up whatever veggies and cheese you have in your fridge. Like quiche, frittatas can be served warm or room temperature.
To make this frittata, you will need:
- artichoke hearts
- baby spinach
- heavy cream
- lemon juice
- Gruyere cheese
- Parmesan cheese
How to make
- Use a non-stick, oven-safe skillet. Always.
