Easy Christmas Morning Frittata

If you're looking for a tasty but easy breakfast recipe for Christmas morning, try this delicious frittata recipe from Pilgrim's Inn.   If you have not had frittata before,  it is like a quiche without a crust. Make this a day or two before and just re-heat it when you are ready. We serve this at the inn for breakfast and get many requests for the recipe!

Pilgrim’s Inn Spinach, Cheddar & Tomato Frittata 
Ingredients
10 large eggs
1 pint heavy cream
1 cup cooked spinach (you can use one packet of thawed out chopped frozen spinach, but if using fresh you will need approximately 1 pound of fresh spinach to get a cup of cooked)
1 cup seeded diced tomatoes (fresh or canned)
1.5 cups grated good quality sharp cheddar cheese
1 tsp salt
2 pinches black pepper
Non-stick cooking spray

Procedure
  • Heat oven to 350 degrees
  • If using fresh spinach, saute in a hot pan until wilted and let cool.  If using frozen, then follow package instructions for thawing, and squeeze out excess liquid. 
  • If using fresh tomato, saute briefly in a pan until slightly cooked, and let cool. If using canned, drain out excess liquid.
  • Beat the eggs together in a mixer or by hand and add the heavy cream until well combined.
  • Fold in the spinach, tomato, cheese, salt and pepper
  • Spray a deep, 9 inch pie plate with cooking spray and pour in the mixture
  • Place pie plate on a baking sheet to catch any drips, and place in oven.
  • Bake in 325 degree oven for 40 – 50 minutes or until egg mixture is light golden brown on top and center is cooked to an internal temperature of 160F  (do not overcook)
To reheat: cover with plastic wrap and then with foil, place in 250 degree oven for half hour or until internal temperature is a minimum of 140 degrees when a thermometer is inserted in center.  You can also re-heat in a microwave in 3 minute intervals until warmed through.  Be careful not to “cook” it or it will turn rubbery.
Additional note: You can use this basic recipe but change the ingredients to different cheeses, vegetables or cooked ham.
