Mushroom Artichoke Frittata


Note: Directions were for cooking at 6000+ feet. You may need to adjust cooking times for flatland kitchens. :-)

1/2 pound fresh mushrooms
1 cup chopped onions
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 10 ounce package frozen spinach, thawed and drained well
5 large eggs
1 - 6 oz jars marinated artichoke hearts, drained
1 1/2 cup grated sharp cheddar cheese
1/8 teaspoon Scoville Brothers Heavy Metal Heat hot sauce
salt to taste
1/4 teaspoon fresh ground pepper or to taste

Saute onions and mushrooms in oil until mushrooms lose a lot of their moisture and onions are starting to caramelize. Remove from heat. Beat eggs lightly. Combine all ingredients into a large bowl and pour mixture into buttered 1/12 quarter casserole. Bake at 350 degrees for 45 minutes.

You can double this and cook in a 13 x 9 pan for a crowd or for leftovers for a light suppe another day (keeps very well to reheat in the oven on low). If you double, increase cooking time 10-15 minutes.

I started this blog so the child I gave up for adoption could get to know me, and in turn, her children, as well as share stories for a family that lives too far away. So please keep it friendly, kid safe, and open to discussion, not criticism.

Enjoy your time here and comments are welcome. But remember - the internet is not real life. It's very much like a grade school playground. Share and enjoy--but realize that those that are your true friends know that life and friendship--are much deeper than cyberspace. This is a stop - not a destination.
