Mushroom Spinach Frittata Recipe – Vegetarian, Keto, Low Carb, Gluten Free
Frittatas are basically like making an omelet without having to precariously flip eggs while trying to keep all the stuffed ingredients inside. So basically a stress-free omelet without the cuss words coming from the kitchen. At least that’s how it goes at my house 😆
How Do You Make A Frittata In A Cast Iron Skillet
Step 1: Sauté mushrooms and spinach, set aside. Mix eggs and cheese then add to pan. Return mushrooms and spinach. Cook 3-4 minutes.
Step 2: Top with additional cheese. Bake at 400ºF for 5 minutes then broil on high for 2 minutes. Allow to cool 5-10 minutes before serving.
What’s the Difference Between a Frittata and a Quiche
Frittatas are made with eggs and whatever veggies or cheeses you want to add. Some recipes call for milk, this recipe does not. Quiches are made with heavy cream and have more of a custard texture. There is also a pie crust involved in making quiche, unless you go for a crustless quiche option.
So, frittatas don’t have heavy cream or a crust.
