Smoked Salmon Spinach Frittata

Let’s begin by gathering our ingredients for Smoked Salmon Spinach Frittata:


6 eggs
6 tablespoons milk
8 ounces smoked salmon, cut or torn into small pieces
1 box (10-ounces) frozen chopped spinach, thawed and drained (squeeze spinach between paper towels to get all the excess water out)
1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese, divided
1 small (or 1/2 large) yellow onion, chopped into medium-sized pieces
2 teaspoons olive oil

Caramelize the onion. In a very small saucepan, heat 1 teaspoon olive oil and add chopped onions. Turn the heat to the lowest possible setting and cook, stirring occasionally, for 30-45 minutes or until the onions are sweet.

In a mixing bowl, whisk eggs and milk. Stir in package of spinach, 6 oz. of shredded smoked salmon, caramelized onions, 1/4 cup Parmesan cheese and sprinkle with salt and pepper.

In a medium-sized skillet that can go in the oven, heat 1 teaspoon olive oil. Turn the heat to medium-low and spread egg mixture in the pan. Cook for 5-10 minutes, until frittata is set, but the top is still runny.

Preheat your oven’s broiler and have the oven rack in the middle of the oven. You don’t want the frittata too close to the broiler.

Sprinkle the top with the remaining 1/4 cup Parmesan cheese  and put it under the broiler with the oven door closed for 3-5 minutes. Keep your eye on it – you don’t want burnt frittata!

Remove from oven, let cool for 5 minutes. Plate to serve and enjoy!
