What else can we do with an egg? I feel like Forrest Gump and shrimp, there are plenty of things to do with them. Today I decided to make a 'frittata'. A what? Yes frittata.
In my Alton Brown voice:
"The frittata is an Italian dish, similar in composition to an omelet. Unlike an omelet, however, the egg mixture is not folded over and finished on the stove top. Most variants of the frittata start with a few moments on the stove top until the bottom layer of the egg mixture has solidified, and then are baked in the oven for half an hour to an hour depending upon the size and recipe"
This thing was soooo easy to make, give it a try. You probably have all the ingredients in your fridge. The possibilites are endless, you can try mushroom and peppers or another veggie combo.

1. In a medium bowl use a fork to beat together the eggs, milk, dill, salt and black pepper until combined. Set aside. (I'm not a huge fan of dill so I didn't use that much)
2. In a 10 inch broilerproof or regular skillet cook onion and garlic in hot butter until tender. Stir in spinach and lemon - pepper seasoning.
3. Pour egg mixture into the skillet over the spinach mixture. Cook
over medium heat. As egg mixture sets, run a spatula around the edge of the skillet, lifting egg mixture to allow the uncooked portion to flow underneath. Continue cooking and lifting edge until egg mixture is almost set but still glossy and moist.
4. Sprinkle with feta cheese. Place broilerproof skillet under the broiler 4 - 5 inches from the heat; broil for 1 to 2 minutes or just until top is set.
(or if using a regular skillet, remove skillet from heat, cover and let stand for 3 to 4 minutes or just until top is set)
This was the point where I hoped my house wasn't going to go on fire.
5 To serve, if desired sprink with red sweet pepper. Cut into 8 wedges
