This frittata is perfect for a weekend morning when you have a little more time to cook. It also saves and reheats well so it works for a busy weekday morning too. You can easily double the recipe and use a 10-12” skillet.

Serves 4

6 eggs
1 tablespoon milk or water
salt and pepper, to taste
1 tablespoon coconut oil
½ small onion, thinly sliced into half circles
1-2 handfuls of kale or baby spinach, chopped
2 oz. goat cheese

1. Preheat oven to 400.
2. Whisk together eggs, milk or water, salt and pepper in a small bowl and set aside.
3. Heat coconut oil in an 8” nonstick ovenproof skillet over medium heat until melted. Cook onion for 5-6 minutes or until tender. Add in kale or spinach and cook until wilted.
4. Pour eggs into skillet with vegetables and stir around for about 1 minute. Leave alone for another minute or so or until the edges are starting to set.
5. Top evenly with goat cheese and put skillet in the oven for 5-7 minutes or until the eggs are almost cooked through. (stick a knife into the center to make sure the eggs are mostly firmed up – they can still be slightly soft)
6. Turn oven to broil and broil for 1-2 minutes to brown the top a little and finish cooking eggs.
7. Remove from oven and let rest for 5 minutes. Loosen egg around the edges with a spatula and then slide onto a cutting board. Cut into wedges. Great hot or room temperature.

 

*you can use any vegetables or cheese that you like and you can also add meat – there are so many variations
