Ingredients

  • 12 large eggs
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/2 cup grated Parmesan
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 medium onion, thinly sliced (6 oz)
  • 1 (5 oz bag) fresh baby spinach leaves, chopped
  • 1 tablespoon minced garlic
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • Olive oil spray

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Place a 9-inch pie plate in the oven.
  • In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the eggs, salt, pepper and Parmesan. Set aside.
  • Heat the olive oil over medium-high heat, about 2 minutes. Add the onions. Cook, stirring occasionally, until tender, about 4 minutes. 
  • Add the spinach, a handful at a time, adding more after each handful has wilted. 
  • Add the garlic, thyme, and red pepper flakes and cook, stirring, 30 seconds. Remove from heat and stir the onion/spinach mixture into the egg mixture.
  • Carefully, using oven mitts, remove the baking dish from the hot oven. Spray it with olive oil spray. Transfer the egg-spinach mixture to the baking dish. 
  • Bake until golden brown and puffy and a knife inserted in center comes out clean, about 30 minutes.
  • Allow the frittata to cool 5 minutes in pan on a wire rack, then invert onto a platter and from the platter to a cooling rack. Cool at least 10 more minutes before slicing and serving.
