Spinach Caprese Frittata

A light and delicious weekend brunch option, this Spinach Caprese Frittata is an ode to summer when tomatoes and basil are at their peak of freshness and flavor.

Take advantage of the HOT deals on Lucerne eggs, heavy cream, and cheese at Safeway to make this delicious Spinach Caprese Frittata as a meal this week. 

A frittata is perfect for breakfast, lunch, or dinner as it comes together in under 30 minutes.  It’s incredibly easy to make and this one is gorgeous with the colorful tomatoes, spinach, and basil. 

I’ve been making frittatas for my family for years, with whatever veggies are leftover in the fridge.  I usually sautee some onions, peppers, and spinach, top with the eggs and cook until it’s set, then broil the top until it’s cooked through.  Super easy breakfast for dinner option! 

Ingredients in Frittata

I used a 10-inch skillet – but if you use a larger skillet, you’ll need to add more eggs, otherwise, it will be too thin. 

  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 1/4 cup cherry tomatoes, sliced into rounds, divided
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 9 large eggs
  • 1/4 cup heavy cream
  • 1/2 cup basil leaves, roughly chopped
  • 1/2 cup spinach, roughly chopped
  • 1/2 cup diced fresh mozzarella cheese
  • micro-greens, arugula or basil for garnish (optional)

How to Make a Frittata

A frittata is super easy to make, looks impressive and you can wow your friends and family with your egg-making skills.  A frittata cooks on the stove top for part of the time, to set the bottom, then you cook it in the oven the remainder of the time so that the top can set.  

Preheat the oven to 350° F.

Heat a 10 inch oven-proof, non-stick skillet over medium heat.

Add the olive oil and 1 cup of the sliced tomatoes.  Season with a pinch of kosher salt.  Cook until the tomatoes soften slightly about 2 minutes. 

In a large bowl, whisk together the eggs, heavy cream, chopped spinach and basil.   Season with salt and pepper.

Pour the egg mixture on top of the tomatoes in the hot skillet.  Stir slightly to incorporate the tomatoes into the eggs.   Sprinkle the mozzarella cheese cubes over the fritatta.

Cook the eggs over medium heat until the bottom of the frittata sets.  You can lift the edges of the frittata around the pan to let the uncooked egg settle to the bottom.  

Place the frittata into the preheated oven and cook for 10 minutes until the eggs are set and fully cooked through in the center. 

Garnish with remaining sliced tomatoes, chopped basil, arugula or microgreens. 

If you’d like, you can flip the frittata out onto a board or plate, slice and serve, or you can leave it in the pan to slice and serve.  Either way – it won’t last long!

I like to keep weekend brunch simple and serve with a nice piece of toasted sourdough, or a pizza toast.  You could also serve with fresh fruit salad, crispy hash browns or oven-roasted potatoes.
