Sweet Potato Spinach Salad

This is a great summer salad!

This is a great summer salad!

With the summer heat already here, it’s the perfect time to start eating our salads again! Don’t know why but the winter months just doesn’t spur up our appetite to munch on salads as a main meal but when the heat kicks in, its bar the door Katey, here we come a knocking! Just loved this combination of veggies, cheese and bacon and it will grace our plates again before too long; I mean, who doesn’t like spinach, sweet taters, lotsa red onion, feta cheese and crispy fried onions?

Of course, husband and daughter had to add extra ingredients to theirs which I thought would take away from the taste I wanted to accomplish, their problem not mine! I also used a little bacon fat drizzled over the top of mine, which I got severely scolded for by my daughter, it’s something I do very, very seldom so give me a break!!! They both used a three cheese Italian dressing which did go very well to.

We also tried Nabisco’s new Sweet Potato Good Thins which were over the top as a compliment to the salad. If you haven’t tried these new baked treats from Nabisco, you should put them on the top of your grocery list. They also come in other flavors which are just as good……………

Spinach Frittata

Since we’re on fresh spinach today, I thought I’d add this one too as we love our spinach! We even have a picture of Popeye in our kitchen eating his spinach!

 

Spinach Frittata
 
Ingredients
  • ½ lb fresh spinach, stems removed and chopped fine
  • 2 tbsp butter, divided
  • 2 tbsp chopped onion
  • 1 small garlic clove, minced
  • ⅓ cup shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 2 tbsp Parmesan cheese
  • ¼ teas salt
  • Dash of pepper
  • 4 eggs, beaten
Instructions
  1. In a saucepan, melt 1 tablespoon of the butter and add the onion, garlic and spinach.
  2. Cook over medium heat, constantly stirring for 15 minutes or until all liquid is evaporated from spinach.
  3. Remove from heat; add the cheeses, salt and pepper.
  4. Combine eggs with the spinach mixture.
  5. In an 8-inch cast iron skillet, heat the remaining butter over medium-low heat.
  6. Pour egg mixture into skillet. As eggs start to set, run a spatula around the edge, lifting to allow the uncooked eggs to go to the bottom of the pan.
  7. Continue to cook and lift edges until almost set.
  8. Place skillet under the broiler, 5-inches from heat source and cook just until set.

 

Frozen spinach may be used for this recipe by using 1/2 box of a 10-ounce package that has been thawed.

This to me is like eating quiche without the crust. Enjoy!!!!
