  1. To make the frittata: Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Heat the oil in a 10-inch nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add the onion and garlic and cook, stirring, for 3 minutes or until tender. Stir in the spinach. Reduce the heat to low. In a large bowl, beat the eggs and egg whites with the milk until light yellow and frothy. Pour the egg mixture over the spinach in the skillet. Cook for 5 to 7 minutes, until the egg mixture is cooked on the bottom and almost set on top. Sprinkle with the cheese. Bake in the oven until the eggs are set and the cheese has melted, 5 to 10 minutes.
  2. To make the salsa: In a large bowl, stir together the tomatoes, scallions, garlic, cilantro, limejuice, salt, and pepper. Serve fresh, at room temperature, over the frittata.

strong garlic flavor, and no salt. It didn't have the right flavor.

I added 5 fresh mushrooms and 2 artichoke hearts to FRESH spinach to the pan, in place of the frozen spinach. I topped with Queso Blanco instead of Mozzarella Cheese because Queso Blanco has a bit more flavor. This was perfect! Wonderful taste and a nice breakfast change!

used canned salsa instead. bit too much spinach for my liking but the salsa helped to make it less bland.

This was a good dish. I added about 1/2 tsp of chipotle in adobo sauce to the salsa - I'm addicted to the smoky flavor! Overall, a satisfying and fairly quick endeavor. I would definitely make it again, next time adding a little salt to the frittata.

I made this recipe last Christmas and it was requested again for Easter Sunday. I doubled the Salsa recipe and we still ran out.
