Ingredients

  • 2 Teaspoons grass-fed butter
  • 2 Cups baby spinach, loosely packed
  • 1/2 Cup sun-dried tomatoes, drained
  • 1 medium zucchini squash, thinly sliced
  • 12 large eggs
  • 1/4 Cup buttermilk or creamer
  • 1 Cup grass-fed cheddar cheese, grated
  • 1/4 Teaspoon coarse grey sea salt
  • 1/3 Cup soft goat cheese or Feta cheese
  • pinch of fresh parsley, to top

Directions

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.

Add the butter, spinach, and sliced zucchini to a 10-inch cast iron skillet and cover.

Cook, stirring occasionally until spinach has wilted, about 2 minutes.

Add the sun-dried tomatoes and a sprinkle of sea salt.

Continue cooking, uncovered, until zucchini has some golden-brown color to it.

Beat the eggs and buttermilk, cheddar cheese, and sea salt in a mixing bowl with a spoon.

Pour the egg mixture into the cast iron skillet over the vegetable mixture and use a wooden spoon to distribute the vegetables evenly.

Sprinkle on the goat cheese and top with fresh herbs.

Transfer the cast iron skillet to the oven and bake 25 to 30 minutes, or until the frittata has set up and has a slight golden brown tone.

Allow frittata to cool 5 minutes before slicing and serving.
