The secret to this recipe is an ovenproof nonstick pan, which allows the eggs to cook properly, keeps them from sticking, and simplifies cleanup.
2 tablespoons olive oil
1/2 cup sliced fresh mushrooms
1 garlic clove, minced
1/2 (6-oz.) package fresh baby spinach
3 bacon slices, cooked and chopped
1 (10-oz.) can mild diced tomatoes and green chiles, drained
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
12 large eggs, beaten*
1/2 cup crumbled garlic-and-herb feta cheese**
How to Make It
Preheat oven to 350°. Heat oil in a 10-inch (2-inch-deep) ovenproof nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Sauté mushrooms in hot oil 2 to 3 minutes or until browned.
Add garlic, and sauté 1 minute. Stir in spinach, and cook, stirring constantly, 1 minute or just until spinach begins to wilt.
Add bacon, tomatoes and green chiles, salt, and pepper, and cook, stirring frequently, 2 to 3 minutes or until spinach is wilted. Add eggs, and sprinkle with cheese. Cook 3 to 5 minutes, gently lifting edges of frittata with a spatula and tilting pan so uncooked portion flows underneath.
Bake at 350° for 12 to 15 minutes or until set and lightly browned. Remove from oven, and let stand 5 minutes. Slide frittata onto a large platter, and cut into 8 wedges.
*1 (32-oz.) carton egg substitute may be substituted. Increase bake time to 16 to 18 minutes or until set.
**Plain feta cheese may be substituted.
Note: We tested with Ro-Tel Mild Diced Tomatoes and Green Chilies.
Really good. I made substitutions and additions to taste and what I had on hand - double the mushrooms & bacon, egg sub+eggs, no oil, reduced-fat 4-blend Mexican. Very easy and good flavor. We doused it with some hot sauce but you could just put some in the egg mixture. It took about 10 minutes longer in the oven to set. Hard to believe no one has tried this.
