Frittata is an open-faced omelet with vegetables, meat or cheese mixed into the eggs unlike a regular omelet that is folded and filled with variations of the aforementioned ingredients.
To make a frittata, beaten eggs are briefly cooked in a hot ovenproof skillet along with other ingredients and finished in the oven. Typically, it is sliced into wedge-shaped portions for serving.
This is a versatile dish that you can make with whatever combination of leftover meats, vegetables and cheeses that you may have. Experiment with your own concoction and you may hit a homerun that will become a family favorite.

2. In a large ovenproof, nonstick skillet, saute in melted butter in medium-high heat, the onions, mushrooms, bell peppers and tomatoes, about 2 minutes. Add the spinach. Cook until wilted.
3. Add the beaten eggs. With a wooden spin, stir the eggs in the vegetables to incorporate. Season with salt & pepper. From this point, cook undisturbed in medium-low heat, until edges are set, about 2 minutes.
