Spinach Frittata Recipe Made In The Crockpot

 

Yes, Virginia, you can make a frittata in your crockpot. Surprise! This healthy, colorful spinach frittata gets an extra punch of flavor from basil, fresh tomatoes, and Parmesan cheese. It is perfect for those hot summer days when you don’t want to heat up the kitchen. This is a great choice for those on low-carb diets, and it couldn’t be easier to make. Great for breakfast, lunch, brunch, or dinner.

Take a tip from me and add about 1/2 teaspoon of dry mustard powder and 1/4 teaspoon of onion powder to perk up up the eggs. This tip works for pretty much any frittata or onion. You’ll be surprised at the difference it makes. You might also want to experiment using different vegetables, such as sweet red bell peppers, zucchini, or whatever sounds good. Toss in some leftovers!
