Herby Frittata with Vegetables and Goat Cheese

I must make a confession.  When I see the words, "goat cheese" in a recipe, I almost always make it.  Goat cheese has a delicious flavor and it seems to improve every dish,it is incorporated in.  It certainly worked well with this frittata.

Originally, I was using a dish from a magazine but by the time I finished cooking it, there was no real resemblance to the original.  I used spinach instead of asparagus, added in smoked salmon, baked instead of broil, added onion. While this is a frittata which was the original, I can't imagine much else about it that is the same.

Hubby and I both ooohed and ahhhed over this.  

Veggie Frittata Starring Goat Cheese


2 - 3 cups spinach
1 medium onion, sliced
1 teaspoon chives
1 teaspoon dill
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
6 large eggs, lightly beaten
1 teaspoon olive oil
2 ounces soft goat cheese, cut in slices
1 cup smoked salmon, shredded


Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

Pour boiling water over spinach and drain.

Add oil to large skillet.
Add onions and cook for about 5 minutes until translucent.

Mix spinach and eggs with dill, chives and black pepper.

Pour over onions and let sit until almost set.

Press goat cheese and salmon into egg and leave on burner for 2 - 3 minutes on very low flame.

Place skillet in oven at 400 degrees.  Bake until  firmly set about 10 minutes.

Remove from oven and loosen egg frittata and then remove onto serving plate.

Cut into wedges and serve.

Eat and enjoy.
