Using my seasoned cast iron skillets, I made a delish meal for the family. Skillets go between the stove top to oven well and are perfect for quick and healthy single pan creations. I love making pot roast in them! I over cooked mine a bit and added a great deal more herbs and spices and they were delish.

Instructions

  1. Place the skillet on a medium heat and melt the butter.
  2. Preheat your oven to 375°F/190°C.
  3. Add onions to the skillet, and optionally add honey and season. Stir occasionally to brown evenly.
  4. While the onions are caramelizing, boil a saucepan of water.
  5. Tear the raw spinach  leaves into bite-size pieces.
  6. Submerge the spinach (or other veggies) in the boiling water for a few minutes and then remove it from the saucepan and drain in a colander, or just remove the greens from the saucepan with a slotted spoon. You could also sautee leafy or frozen greens with onions after caramelizing
  7. When the onions are browned and caramelized (about 10 minutes or so), turn off the heat.
  8. Blend the eggs, cheese, and  semi boiled greens (and optional salmon or bacon) in a bowl with some salt, pepper, and nutmeg to taste.
  9. Pour the egg mixture over the onions (if you sauteed your veggies with the onions you would just pour the egg mixture over).
  10. Place the skillet in the oven and bake for 10 minutes or so, or until the frittata is firm and slightly browned on top. If you’re using more than 4 eggs, it will take 5 to 10 minutes longer to fully bake.
  11. Cool and enjoy!
