Spinach and Feta Frittata
Frittatas are Italian open-faced omelet-like dishes made with whisked eggs and various ingredients such as vegetables, cheese, meats, and herbs. The word frittata is Italian and roughly translates to “fried.”
They are inexpensive to make and come together quickly.
You can make them with almost any ingredient you have on hand, so they are perfect for using up all the little leftover vegetables and cheeses left in your refrigerator.
Our Spinach and Feta Frittata is perfect for an easy breakfast, lunch, or dinner and can be enjoyed hot out of the oven, at room temperature, or chilled.
The versatility of frittatas, not only with the fillings you can use and ways to serve them, make them a great option for entertaining.
Whether you’re hosting a brunch party with friends, planning a picnic in the park, or simply looking for a quick and easy meal to enjoy at home, this spinach feta frittata is a fantastic choice!

The Purple Pumpkin Blog uses both cups and weighted measurements in its recipes, making American cups and kitchen food scales useful tools for trying out all the recipes. I provide US customary, imperial, and metric measurements, but it’s important to note that while you can combine cup measurements with weighted measures, never mix US customary/imperial (pounds, ounces, pints, etc.) with metric (kilograms, grams, liters, etc.).
