Mushroom Lover's Frittata with Spinach and Cheese

This is the perfect time of the year for having breakfast for dinner, or for a good hearty brunch on the weekend.



1 bag Ozark Forest mushrooms, cleaned and sliced
2-3 tsp. olive oil
1 medium onion or 2 green onions, coarsely chopped
1 bunch spinach, washed and chopped, large stems removed
9 eggs 
Salt and Pepper
1/2 cup shredded Marcoot Jersey Creamery  melty cheese like gouda, havarti or mozaarella, plus a tiny bit more to sprinkle on top if desired
1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese (or whatever you have left in the fridge from last week)

Preheat broiler. Use a 12 inch all metal frying pan with a non-stick surface. Oil a pan.

Heat 1 tsp. olive oil over medium heat.
Add onions and mushrooms, salt and pepper. 

Saute about 5 minutes, until mushrooms are softened and liquid has evaporated.

Add a tiny bit more oil, then add spinach to mushrooms and saute 2-3 minutes, until spinach has wilted quite a bit.

While spinach is wilting, beat eggs well.
Sprinkle cheese over wilted spinach/mushroom mixture and let melt about 1 minute.
Then pour eggs over, using a fork to separate the veggies so egg runs down between vegetable pieces. (You can sprinkle a tiny bit more cheese over the eggs if desired.)
Cover pan with lid, reduce heat to very low and cook about 20-25 minutes, or until eggs are nearly set but still slightly soft in spots.

Remove lid and put frittata under the broiler for 3-5 minutes (depending on how close to the heat you have it) until the top is nicely browned and eggs are set. Let cool about 2 minutes, then slice like a pie into six pieces. Serve hot.

Tip: How to Prepare and Eat Edamame

To prepare your edamame, rinse in a colander (don't worry about any rusty edges. Farmer Mary Ellen Raymond said the heat will turning them colors, but they taste great regardless) and boil in salted water for 3 to 5 minutes, drain and cool. Toss with more salt, if desired. Pop the beans out of the pod with your...Read more


As both a vendor and a member, I've found Fair Shares to be a wonderful organization to be a part of. It has opened my eyes to a whole range of farmers/producers in the region that I may never have had the opportunity to come in contact with if it weren't for my involvement with Fair Shares. And you folks all rock!
