Spinach and Feta Frittata


  • About ¼ cup extra-virgin olive oil (EVOO)

  • 1 bunch scallions, whites and light green tops, finely chopped

  • 4 cloves garlic, finely chopped

  • About ¾ cup combined fresh mint, dill, oregano and parsley, finely chopped

  • 2 bunches medium-leaf spinach (¾-1 pound), stemmed and chopped

  • Salt and pepper

  • Freshly grated nutmeg, to taste (no more than 1/8 teaspoon)

  • ½ lemon

  • ¼ cup panko, whole-wheat panko or gluten-free panko breadcrumbs (a handful)

  • 1 cup Greek feta, drained and crumbled

  • 12 eggs, beaten with salt and pepper

  • 1 vine tomato, very thinly sliced


Preheat oven to 375°F.

Heat a 12-inch nonstick skillet over medium to medium-high heat. Add EVOO, 4 turns of the pan, add scallions and garlic and stir for a minute. Add herbs and start wilting in spinach in bunches; once wilted, season spinach with salt, pepper, nutmeg and douse with juice of ½ lemon. Add breadcrumbs and feta to pan, pour eggs over and gently stir to combine. Settle the eggs and let them set for a minute or so, then gently arrange the very thinly sliced tomatoes in a circle layered about 2 inches in from the edge of the pan.

Bake frittata until puffed and golden, about 25 minutes. Loosen edges and remove frittata to cutting board or platter; cool for 10 minutes. Cut the frittata into 6 or 9 squares and serve.
