Baked Mini Frittata with Sautéed Spinach, Tomatoes, and Onion with Extra Sharp White Cheddar

Baked Mini Frittata with Sautéed Spinach, Tomatoes, and Onion with Extra Sharp White Cheddar

I was in the mood for a healthy lunch so I went to see what I had in the fridge. I found a couple of eggs, a handful of spinach, a bit of an onion, a little extra sharp white cheddar, and a few grape tomatoes. I sautéed the spinach, tomato, and onion along with a bit of garlic then tossed them together with the eggs and cheese in a small baking dish then placed it in the oven to bake. The frittata turned out fluffy and so delicious. I didn’t miss having meat in this flavorful dish and loved the combination of flavors. This was a terrific lunch but would be just as good served for breakfast or dinner.
