Spinach & Sun Dried Tomato Frittatas

Mini Spinach & Sun Dried Tomato Frittatas / @loveandlemons

Do you have Easter brunch or Easter dinner? My family always has a formal Easter ham dinner, but around here brunch seems to be more popular.

Not that it matters for us this year – Jack and I will doing what we’ve done for every holiday this year so far – testing and shooting cookbook recipes. Yep, that’s right – this book project started with Thanksgiving tacos and now Easter weekend will be a smorgasbord of random bits and bobs, tons of dirty dishes, and some really funky combinations of leftovers. There definitely won’t be ham, but there might be a few eggs.

If your family is a brunch-y one, here’s a simple frittata idea. If you don’t have mini skillets, you can make these in a muffin tin or you could make this in one big skillet and scale up the recipe to serve a crowd. Add in whatever vegetables you like – although I really love spinach in frittatas, especially now while it’s in season. Sometimes I add cheese, but this time I used sun dried tomatoes for that salty bite.

Prep time
Cook time
Total time
Recipe type: Breakfast
Serves: about 6 mini frittatas (serves about 3)
  • drizzle of olive oil
  • ¼ cup chopped scallions
  • 1 small clove garlic
  • 2 cups chopped spinach
  • 6 large eggs
  • ¼ cup almond milk
  • ⅓ cup chopped sun dried tomatoes
  • ¼ cup chopped herbs: (ie. basil, parsley, tarragon...)
  • pinch of red pepper flakes
  • salt and pepper
  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. If you're using cast iron skillets, preheat those in the oven as well. (Otherwise grease little ramekins or 6 cups of a muffin tin and set aside).
  2. Heat olive oil in a medium skillet over medium heat. Add scallions, garlic, spinach, and a pinch of salt and pepper. Cook until spinach is just wilted, set aside.
  3. In a medium bowl, whisk the eggs and milk. Add the cooked spinach and sun dried tomatoes. Pour mixture into prepared skillets and bake for 10-12 minutes or until the eggs are just set. (Adjust baking time for a larger frittata).
  4. Remove from the oven, sprinkle on fresh herbs and freshly cracked black pepper. Let cool slightly and serve.
This recipe can also be made in an 8 or 10 inch skillet. Add 2 (or more) additional eggs to fill a 12 inch skillet. Double recipe to fill 12 muffin cups.

    Yum! These look amazing, and I could see myself serving them alongside my grandma’s biscuits on Christmas morning this year! Thanks for sharing 🙂

    Made these today for breakfast for my in-laws and were blown away! My 3yo wasnt very convinced but that´s because she is not very keen on sun-dried tomatoes 🙂 I loved them!

    I have a Christmas brunch on Saturday and I’m just wondering if I could bake these at home first and then reheat and the host’s house an hour later or if I should just bake there? I’m planning to try to bake them in muffin tins – do you use the paper cups in the tins or just grease the tins? Thanks!! They look stunning and delicious!

      Hi Dana, I sometimes reheat these but usually only when I’m making a weekday breakfast for myself. For Christmas I think it would be best to bake them there. Grease the muffin pan, I think they’d stick to papers. Hope that helps!

    Muy buena web, me ha gustado

  15. David from mininevera.info

    Es incluso bueno para usar en las neveras.

    What size are the mini skillets?

    • Jeanine Donofrio

      3.5 inches (here they are: http://amzn.to/2DIO4L6) a muffin tin could also be used, just adjust the bake time accordingly!
