Quick and easy spinach frittata with onion, egg, parmesan, and pepper. Perfect if you're looking for an egg dish for a weekend brunch. I also like to serve it as weeknight 'breakfast for dinner'. Try frittata if you're looking for an open-faced omelette or egg crustless quiche.

What you will need

1 red onion

1 bunch spinach

8 eggs

500 g grated parmesan

2 tbsp water (30ml)

salt and pepper to taste

How to cook


Slice red onion

Cut the onion in half, remove the peel, and slice it up into little arches, like onion rainbows.


Sautée red onion

Sautée the onion in olive oil over medium heat. For this dish, I think it's good to get some char on the onion. It should help to add a little flavor and texture.


Wash spinach

As the onion is cooking, wash the spinach well.



Roll the spinach up into a log, and slice it up into strips. Roughly 1/4" should work well. You don't want to slice too thin.


Cook spinach with red onion

Once the red onion is tender, and starting to develop some darkness, you can toss in the spinach.


Combine eggs, water and cheese

We'll mix the cheese into the eggs and add a little bit of water to help keep the frittata from being too dense.


Season and mix

Add a little salt and pepper and mix well.


Stir in the eggs

Add the eggs into the cooked spinach and onion. Use a spatula to mix it all up.


Allow to set

With a couple of minutes on the stovetop, the eggs will start to set.


Bake in oven or cook in low heat

You can finish the frittata on the stove if you use a nice, low heat. But I transferred my frittata to the oven at 350°F (175°C). It took about 12 minutes to cook. But this will depend on the size of your pan.
