Caramelized Onion, Spinach and Tomato Frittata with Asiago

29 May

Good morning everyone! I hope you are all having a fabulous day so far.

What did you all get up to last night?

I didn’t do much, just relaxed. Caught up on some TV on the PVR that I haven’t gotten around to watching. A couple of the shows I watched:

-Finale of New Girl: Sort of a cliffhanger ending! What is going to happen with Schmidt and Cece??!!

-SNL episode with Ben Affleck and Kanye West: Ben Affleck was hilar! I love any of the ones with Stephen and surprise appearance by Amy Pohler? YAY. What the heck is up with Kanye’s new music style, though? That’s wack.

Other than that I didn’t do much, I have been feeling super tired lately so hopefully it passes. I think it has something to do with this dreary weather we’ve been having in Vancouver.

C’mon sun, I need some Vitamin D!

Does anyone want to have breakfast with me today? Frittata is on the menu!

Actually, I could only wish this is what I was having for breakfast! I’m pretty sure I’ll be eating Mini Wheats and a banana…

This is so much…yummier!

I am a big fan of eggs for breakfast, I am not a huge ‘sweets for breakfast’ person, so I usually lean towards eggs and toast kind of thing. Lately I’ve been making breakfast tacos, which are really tasty, but that is a recipe for another day.

Today we make frittata.


This is a super easy way to make eggs but it is chock full of flavor and even some health benefits with the veggies. This is a meatless dish as well which is great, of course we had sausages with it, but that’s beside the point.

Let’s get to it. This one is a semi step by step. I say semi because I was too lazy to take all the photos necessary, but it’s a pretty straight forward recipe so we shouldn’t have any problems.

You’ll need the pictured ingredients:


Halved cherry tomatoes, spinach and asiago. Also not pictured, butter, olive oil, sliced onion, salt and pepper. Told you this was a semi step by step.

Start by tossing some thinly sliced sweet onion into a hot skillet with some olive oil and butter. Let the onion caramelize over low heat until it is softened and browned.


Now crank up the heat to medium add a couple big handfuls of spinach.


Now let that cook until it is wilted down.


Add 12 beaten eggs to the hot pan.


And season generously with kosher salt and freshly ground pepper.


Let this cook over medium heat for about 5-7 minutes until large bubbles form in the egg and stay there, you’ll see the bubbles I’m talking about in the photo below, this means it is beginning to cook through. Now poke in some halved cherry tomatoes all over the top of the egg.



Now turn your broiler on and stick this baby under the broiler until the top is almost set. Pull out the skillet and sprinkle the top of the frittata with a good handful of grated asiago.


Put it back under the broiler for just a minute or two, to melt and brown the cheese.


And voila!



This is such a delicious and fairly healthy breakfast. I love the sweetness of the onion and the earthiness of the spinach. The tomatoes give it some acidity and the asiago adds some saltiness and a little tang.


Serve it up with some toast and sausages if you’re meat eaters like us.


And enjoy this easy crowd pleasing breakfast recipe!


And I will see YOU back here tomorrow for a yummy dessert recipe. Stay tuned!

Caramelized Onion, Spinach and Tomato Frittata with Asiago

Prep Time: 5 minutes

Cook Time: 25 minutes

Total Time: 30 minutes

Yield: Serves 6

Caramelized Onion, Spinach and Tomato Frittata with Asiago


  • 1 tbsp butter
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • Half of one medium sweet onion, sliced thinly
  • 2 cups fresh baby spinach
  • 12 whole eggs, well beaten
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 6 cherry tomatoes, halved lengthwise
  • 1/2 cup finely grated asiago cheese


In a large cast iron skillet (or other pan that can go from stovetop to oven) melt butter and oil over medium high heat, once bubbly, add the sliced onion. Reduce heat to low and allow the onion to brown and soften, stirring occasionally, about 10-15 minutes.

Once the onion is caramelized, turn the heat back up to medium, and add the spinach, allow the spinach to wilt, stir to combine.

Add the egg to the skillet and season generously with kosher salt and fresh ground pepper. Cook over medium heat until large bubbles come up to the top and stay there, about 6-7 minutes. Poke in the halved tomatoes, cut side up, all over the top of the frittata.

Place the whole skillet under your broiler and allow the top of the frittata to cook, about 4-5 minutes, remove from the oven and sprinkle with the asiago cheese and return to the broiler for 1-2 minutes just to melt and brown the cheese.

Remove and set on a board to cool slightly in the skillet, about 5-6 minutes. Slice into wedges and serve with toast or fresh fruit.
