This morning I woke up to the sound of gunshots, don’t worry though, it wasn’t directed at any humans, just the annual Fall duck hunters blasting my duckie buddies out of the water. It makes me sad, but I know people hunt to put food on the table and I am ok with that aspect, after all, I am a meat eater myself.
So to keep my mind off the hunters, I headed to the kitchen to make a fabulous Sunday brunch frittata. Yesterday I had cleared out the raised garden beds except for the carrots and came away with a bounty of peppers, tomatoes, chard and spinach, and the spinach was going to be a supporting cast member in this mornings breakfast.
The next 2 must have ingredients are onions and mushrooms…simmering in butter until caramelized and then folded into a luscious egg and cheese mixture, divine I tell you!
Here is today’s recipe, I hope you enjoy it as much as I did this morning!
6 large eggs
1/4 cup milk
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
1 tbsp parmesan cheese
3 tbsp butter
1/2 cup thinly sliced white onions
2 cups sliced mushrooms
2 cups baby spinach, roughly torn
1/4 tsp dried thyme
salt and pepper to taste
Preheat oven to 350°F and spray an 8 inch square baking dish with cooking spray.
In a saucepan, melt butter over medium heat, add sliced onions and salt and pepper to taste and cook slowly until just starting to caramelize, add mushrooms and thyme, increase heat to medium-high and cook, stirring often, until mushrooms are browned.
Bake at 350°F for 25 to 30 minutes until set.
