This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Shaw’s Supermarket. All opinions are 100% mine.
My last “Mom’s Day Out” before the pandemic began included a facial and lunch alone with a book at a delicious cafe in the city. While there, I had a frittata and side salad for lunch. I recently was trying to think of some new lunch ideas (anyone else think it’s the hardest meal to plan for at home?) and I thought back about that truly blissful lunch almost a year ago. This inspired me to make my own frittata at home for a prepped ahead lunch that in my opinion is much better than leftovers 🙂
I love a frittata both for breakfast and lunch and especially love that protein packed eggs fill me up much longer! When making a frittata like my Caramelized Onion, Spinach and Feta Frittata, I like to make a large one for breakfast over the weekend and then cut into individual servings that we can eat throughout the week. I’ll keep the frittata slices in the fridge for two days and after that individually wrap and freeze them for an easy microwaveable option. A frittata also makes a great breakfast for dinner option too- who doesn’t love that?

What are some of your favorite make at home lunch recipes?
- 10 eggs
- 1 cup milk
- 4 cups spinach
- 1 onion
- 1 cup crumbled feta
- Salt & Pepper to taste
- Spring Mix or favorite greens for serving
Caramelize the onion by sautéing in olive oil and 1 teaspoon of butter at a low temperature, stirring occasionally. The rule of thumb when caramelizing onions is “low and slow” so be sure to do both things.
Sautee spinach until wilted. Remove spinach from pan and place on a plate covered in paper towel to absorb any excess moisture from the spinach.
In a large bowl, whisk together the eggs and milk until well combined.
Stir in the feta, caramelized onions and sautéed spinach.
Add salt and pepper to taste.
Pour egg mixture into a prepared baking dish or cast iron pan.
Place baking dish or cast iron pan in oven pre-heated to 350 Degrees.
Bake for 20-25 minutes.
Allow to cool slightly, slice and serve with side salad of choice.
Leftovers can be kept in refrigerator for two days or frozen for a delicious and quick breakfast or lunch at home.
