Broccoli & Cheddar Frittata


8 Eggs

½ cup milk (of your choice)

2 cloves garlic, pressed or minced

½ teaspoon sea salt, divided

Freshly ground black pepper

1 cup freshly grated cheddar cheese, divided

1 tablespoon Extra Virgin Olive Oil, more as needed

1 small yellow onion, chopped

⅓ cup water

2 cups thinly sliced broccoli florets

2 cups baby spinach, roughly chopped

⅓ cup thinly sliced green onions


  1. Preheat the oven to 425 °F. In a large bowl, whisk together the eggs, milk, garlic, ¼ teaspoon of the salt and a couple of dashes of freshly ground black pepper until well blended. Then whisk in about half of the cheese, reserving the other half for later.

  2. In a 10-inch, well-seasoned cast-iron skillet or oven-safe sauté pan, warm the olive oil over medium heat. Add the onion and the remaining ¼ teaspoon salt. Cook, stirring frequently until the onion is soft and translucent, about 3 to 5 minutes.

  3. Add the broccoli and water to the pan, then cover it with a lid and steam the mixture until the broccoli is bright green and easily pierced by a fork, about 2 to 3 minutes. Uncover, and add the spinach and green onions. Cook, stirring constantly until the spinach has wilted, about 30 to 60 seconds.

  4. Arrange the mixture in an even layer across the skillet. Whisk the egg mixture one last time and pour it into the pan. Sprinkle the remaining cheese over the frittata. Put the pan in the oven and bake until frittata shifts loosely in pan when shaken (careful, it’s hot!) and see that the middle is just barely set about 12 to 15 minutes.

  5. Once the frittata is done baking, let it rest for 5 to 10 minutes before slicing it into 6 large or 8 smaller wedges. Serve immediately with a side salad or on its own!
