Spinach and Caramelized Onion Frittata

It’s egg season. We are currently getting 10 chicken eggs a day. Duck eggs depend on whether we beat the pigs to them or not. We waste a lot of these eggs. A lot are fed back to the dogs or pigs. So, I’m making an effort to learn egg heavy recipes and I’m going to share them with you.

This recipe is a big hit. Delicious and easy, it requires 9 eggs.


I also love this recipe because it reheats extremely well. Husband and I are the only real big egg eaters so we had a lot of this left over. We were able to eat it for breakfast another day and it tasted almost as good as fresh made.

Spinach and Caramelized Onion Frittata


9 eggs

1 handful spinach, chopped

½ large onion, chopped

2 cloves garlic, minced

1tsp Paprika

Salt and Pepper to taste

Green onions (optional garnish)


In a large cast iron skillet add the onions and cook on low about 5-10 minutes. Add fresh chopped spinach and garlic. Stir until the spinach has wilted.

Meanwhile in a small bowl beat the 9 eggs with the paprika and salt and pepper. Add to the onion and spinach and use your spatula to make sure the mixture is flat. Cook on the stove top until the edges are beginning to stiffen. Then transfer to the onion and broil on low an additional 10-15 minutes.
