The secret to this recipe is an ovenproof nonstick pan, which allows the eggs to cook properly, keeps them from sticking, and simplifies cleanup.

Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1/2 (6-oz.) package fresh baby spinach
  • 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

  1. Preheat oven to 350°. Heat oil in a 10-inch (2-inch-deep) ovenproof nonstick skillet over medium-high heat.

  2. Add garlic, and sauté 1 minute. Stir in spinach, and cook, stirring constantly, 1 minute or just until spinach begins to wilt.

  3. Add 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.

  4. 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.

  5. *1 (32-oz.) carton egg substitute may be substituted. Increase bake time to 16 to 18 minutes or until set.

  6. **Plain feta cheese may be substituted.

  7. Note: We tested with Ro-Tel Mild Diced Tomatoes and Green Chilies.
