Passover Spinach Fritatta

Cooking Recipes Catalogue

Spinach, eggs and matzo are mixed with salt, pepper and a dash of freshly ground nutmeg, and cooked in a skillet to make a stunningly simple open-faced omelette.

INGREDIENTS (for 3 servings):


  • Heat the spinach in a saucepan with 1/2 cup of water, until completely thawed. Strain the spinach, reserving half the amount of liquid.
  • Crumble the matzo into a medium-size mixing bowl and pour the spinach and the remaining liquid over them. Mix thoroughly until the matzo are softened. Add the Parmesan, eggs, salt, nutmeg and pepper.
  • Heat the margarine in a 12 inch skillet and add the spinach mixture. Cook on medium heat, uncovered for 5 minutes on each side. Sprinkle with grated Parmesan and serve immediately.
