We have all had quiche for brunch, lunch and hors d'oeuvres..... then the craze was frittatas, (a crustless quiche),  made in a sheet pan, muffin pan, served for brunch, snack, dinner........then they both seemed to go by  the wayside......
and now there seems to be the resurgence of both!
I recently hosted a breakfast for a family gathering and thought about a quiche but then decided
on a frittata.......a dish I have always loved and prepared many, many times (me being the low carb gal).....
I had on hand fresh spinach and a lovely jar of artichoke hearts (not marinated) I went
on line and started looking at various recipes which included these ingredients....
What I came up with was .....absolutely delicious!!! (even the B O B said so!)....

this was soooooo easy......

Method and Ingredients:
heat oven to 425*
drizzle  2 rounds of olive oil into 10 inch skillet
and add 1 knob of butter

then add
1/2 onion, finely diced and saute for 2 minutes,
then add
2 garlic cloves, minced
and saute 1 minute.

Next  add 4 cups fresh baby spinach, (stems removed PLEASE!), and stir til spinach leaves are
well coated with butter/olive oil mixure (spinach will start to wilt)

Have 12 eggs well beaten plus 1 cup heavy cream incorporated into eggs with 1 t. kosher salt, 1 t. freshly ground coarse black pepper, 1/4 t. cayenne pepper and  pour over spinach mixture......
Sprinkle  2 cups grated sharp cheddar cheese, 1 cup grated muenster cheese, 1/4 c. parmesan cheese
over the egg mixture....
then place this wonderful mixture into the preheated oven for about 20-25 minutes. 

It will puff up beautifully and become lightly browned.......

then, when you open the oven and remove it, it will deflate in front of you......but fear not,
it will be delicious!!!!
