METHOD:

Preheat oven to 250°C. Meanwhile, wash, pat dry and coarsely chop spinach. In a small bowl, whisk together eggs, cheese, salt and pepper. On medium-low heat add bacon and oil to oven-safe skillet and cook for a minute or two to slightly crisp up. Add in garlic and give a good stir and then add in all of the spinach and cook covered for a few minutes, while stirring once or twice until the spinach wilts down.

Redistribute spinach, eggs and bacon with a spatula and then carefully pour eggs on top, evening everything out as needed. Cook for about 5 minutes until eggs are almost fully set on top and then transfer to the oven to cook for another 5-10 minutes, depending on how crispy you want your frittata. Serve immediately.

Ako se mene pita, jaja su savršena hrana. S njima se da napraviti tisuću stvari i lako ih se doda jelima za zaokruženi, hranjivi i jeftini obrok. Brzo se skuhaju i teško ih je upropastiti. Funkcioniraju za doručak, brunch, ručak i večeru. I elevenses, naravno.

SASTOJCI:

(Za 1 osobu / 9,66 kn)

Veliki pregršt svježeg špinata (2,00 kn)

2 jaja (3,00 kn)

2 žlice fino naribanog tvrdog sira, kao što su parmezan ili Grana Padano (1,00 kn)

Prstohvat soli (0,01 kn)

Dobar prstohvat svježe mljevenog crnog papra (0,05 kn)

2-3 kriške špeka, narezane na kvadrate (3,00 kn)

1 žlica ulja (0,10 kn)

2 češnja češnjaka, sitno nasjeckana (0,50 kn)

PRIPREMA:

Zagrijte pećnicu na 250°C. U međuvremenu operite, posušite i grubo narežite špinat. U maloj zdjelici razmutite jaja sa sirom, soli i paprom. Na srednjoj do laganoj vatri u tavicu, koja može i u pećnicu, dodajte špek i ulje te kuhajte minutu-dvije, dok se špek lagano ne zahrska. Dodajte češnjak, promiješajte, pa ubacite sav špinat i kuhajte poklopljeno nekoliko minuta dok špinat ne povene. Po potrebi promiješajte jednom ili dva puta.

Špatulom rasporedite špinat, špek i češnjak, pa pažljivo preko prelijte razmućena jaja. Po potrebi malo poravnajte. Kuhajte oko 5 minuta, dok jaja sa gornje strane nisu skoro pa gotova. Onda sve preselite u pećnicu i zapecite 5-10 minuta, ovisno o tome koliko hrskavu fritatu želite. Poslužite odmah.
