You can substitute egg whites for all the eggs to cut back on fat and calories. If assembling frittata one day ahead, cover and refrigerate overnight. In the morning, remove from refrigerator, uncover and bring to room temperature before baking. Or, remove from refrigerator, uncover and place in cold oven; turn oven on and allow baker and oven to pre-heat together.

This Spinach and Cheddar Frittata is super easy to put together but looks like a million dollars! I like to make it ahead and serve it at a weekend brunch along with fresh fruit and a colorful salad. It's always a big hit! - Tara
