1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
1 yellow onion, sliced
8 cups (5 ounces) baby greens, such as spinach, Swiss chard, arugula or a mixture
4 large eggs
4 large egg whites
¼ teaspoon kosher salt
¼ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1 ounce feta cheese, crumbled (about 2 tablespoons)
- Heat the oven (with the oven rack in middle) to 350°F.
- Place a medium-sized cast iron or regular skillet over medium-high heat. Add the oil and heat until it shimmers. Add the sliced onion and cook, stirring occasionally, for 5 minutes. Then lower the heat to medium and cook, stirring often, until golden brown and tender, 5 to 7 minutes more.
- Meanwhile, in a medium bowl, whisk together the eggs, egg whites, salt and pepper.
- Once the onion is tender, add the greens. Cover with a lid and let cook, untouched, for 1 minute. Then remove the lid and, using tongs, toss together and cook approximately 1 minute more until the greens are just barely wilted. Remove from heat.
- Pour the beaten eggs over the wilted greens, making sure they are evenly distributed. Crumble the feta over the top. Transfer to the oven and bake until the center of the frittata is set, about 15 minutes.
