If you’ve yet to try our mouth-watering Spinach and Mozarella Fritatta, you don’t know what you’re missing! This slow cooker recipe combines the flavors of mozzarella cheese, garlic, spinach, and eggs to create a savory and filling recipe that will make you want to go back for more. And, with only 74 calories per serving, you have our permission to occasionally go for that second helping.
A frittata is a great alternative to a traditional omelet or scrambled eggs. It is easier to make because there is no flipping or hovering over the stove. This slow cooker spinach and mozarella frittata is even easier because you toss the ingredients into the slow cooker and leave it to bake on its own. Like so many of the healthy slow cooker foods feature on our site, this dish is easy, convenient, and filled with delicious, healthy ingredients. Whether you are searching for a breakfast or brunch option, or you need a dish to share for a special occasion, this is it.
Spinach and Mozzarella Frittata tastes great, whether served hot or cold, and goes perfectly with a garden-fresh salad or our Quinoa Rice Pilaf. We love to experiment by added sauteed mushrooms and goat cheese. What’s your favorite frittata add-in?
