Healthy Spinach Feta Frittata
Mornings are hard when you want to eat healthy. I personally like meals that are easy to grab and that will fuel my body with the energy I need for the day. This frittata is the perfect meal for filling you with energy in the morning. Let's explore the ingredients in this recipe so you can understand the benefits that they have on your body!
- Spinach is a superfood that is low in fat and high in vitamins and minerals such as zinc, fiber, vitamins A, C, E and K, thiamin, vitamin B6, calcium, iron, magnesium, phosphorus, potassium, and manganese. This veggie is packed with vitamins and minerals and pairs well with eggs. If it is good enough for Popeye, it is good enough for me!
- Eggs are a good source of inexpensive, high-quality protein. More than half the protein of an egg is found in the egg white, along with the vitamin B2. Where I live, you can get a dozen eggs for 52 cents! Tell me in the comments how much a dozen eggs cost where you live.
- Feta cheese is made from a sheep's or goat's milk. Feta also contains calcium and B12 as well as small amounts of iron, folate, and vitamin D. Eaten plain, this cheese is slightly tangy. When you pair it with spinach and eggs, you get a dish that is bursting with flavor!
- 18 eggs
- 1 block of frozen spinach
- 1 container of feta cheese
- Salt and pepper
- Pre-heat your oven to 350°F.
- Spray a 9x13-inch glass baking dish with non-stick spray.
- Defrost your spinach and, with a strainer, squeeze out the spinach juice.
- Mix the eggs, drained spinach, and feta cheese together in a bowl. Once combined, pour your mixture into your glass baking dish.
- Bake for 20 to 40 minutes, depending on your oven. Typically, I set a timer for 20 minutes and check it every 5 to 7 minutes until it's done. It will be done when you stick a butter knife in and it comes out clean.
