Spinach and Sundried Tomato Fritatta

Spinach and Sundried Tomato Fritatta

We’re no strangers to fritattas. However, there’s always an element of skill and patience required to make them – being able to cook a huge pan full of eggs all the way through, sometimes flipping the massive disk, is not easy.

Whoever the genius was that decided to move the fritatta into ramekins will be forever deserving of my thanks. And I honestly don’t know if I’ll ever make a regular full-pan size fritatta ever again. Seriously. Ramekin fritattas are just too perfect to make it any other way.

These little personal sized fritattas puff up in their ramekins almost like souffles. They are light and fluffy and the perfect size for dinner (or lunch or breakfast). While this recipe called for spinach and sundried tomatoes, you can basically use any veggies or greens that you may have left in your fridge. They are a great way to use up any produce that is on it’s way out – a true clean-the-fridge type of meal.

  1. What a precious fritatta! The flavors sound just divine. Now that I’ve seen this, I’ll never make a full pan fritatta again either. It was so wonderful stumbling upon your blog! I just love it!

  2. oh, boy. as I sit here and eat my SpiderMan mac and cheese/steamed broccoli and boring baked chicken that I made the kids, I stumble upon this photo.

    inadequate much? I’m copying the recipe and going to try it asap.

  3. I was going to make a spinach frittata for dinner last night, ended up being an omelette. But seeing how lovely yours looks, I might have to have one tonight. Beautiful.

  4. That is brilliant! Delicious looking fritatta, as well.

  5. This sounds delicious and easy! I like how it doesn’t rely so much on cheese; I may be able to alter it without too much damage :)

  6. another great fri-tta-ta combination! yes!



  7. i’ve only made a frittata once but i didn’t really know how to have it bake evenly through without flipping it…i kind of failed. these cute baking cups are a good idea.
