I love frittatas!! They are so versatile. They are perfect for breakfast, brunch or dinner. And the best of the best is that frittatas also transport well, so you can pack them up for work lunches. Actually, I do this often.
Who doesn’t love a creamy, custardy, and full of veggies frittata? My spinach and tomatoes frittata recipe is not dry, sponge-like or bland. My frittata is made with plenty of eggs, rich bacon, vibrant brightly flavored tomatoes, and fresh spinach. If you’re on a keto diet I have great news for you! This frittata recipe is keto friendly. This is a nutrient rich dish that works well for a keto diet because of the fat content in the eggs.
I usually make my frittatas with whatever vegetables I have on hand, which means that I’ve tried a whole bunch of various combinations. This time, because my vegetable garden is full of spinach I decided to make a spinach and tomatoes frittata.
What is a Frittata?
A frittata is an Italian dish, similar to a crustless, low-carb quiche or a fluffy, layered omelet, that features a mixture of eggs and a variety of other ingredients like meat, cheese, and vegetables. The name roughly translates to “fried,” due to the dish being prepared in a skillet.
So easy to prepare, this frittata goes from the stovetop to the oven. And all it´s ready in 30 minutes. Learn my tips, tricks, and how to make a frittata below.
Some Tips to make a Keto and Low Carb Frittata
- You should pre-cook your vegetables. Vegetables should be tender, seasoned and cooked before adding the eggs. Raw vegetables release too much water and won’t be fully cooked by the time the eggs are done. Usually, I pre-cook my vegetables by sautéing them.
- You should keep it simple. Too many ingredients will weigh down your frittata and prevent the egg custard from cooking evenly.
- Watch closely. Every minute matters with frittata, so don’t stay away from your oven.

How do you make keto and low carb spinach tomato frittata?
- Preheat oven to 175ºC / 350ºF.
- Place bacon in a 10-inch non-stick skillet (non-stick or a well-seasoned cast iron pan are best) and cook over medium-high heat, tossing frequently, until browned and crisp, about 6 – 10 minutes.
- Transfer bacon to a plate lined with several layers of paper towels to drain, leave 1 Tbsp rendered bacon fat in a skillet drain and reserve or discard excess.
- Return skillet to medium-high heat, add spinach and tomatoes, and saute just briefly until it has wilted, about 15 seconds, transfer spinach to a plate.
- In a large mixing bowl whisk together egg, garlic powder until well combined. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
- Add cooked bacon, spinach, and shredded mozzarella and toss mixture to distribute ingredients. Pour into your cast-iron skillet.
- Bake in the preheated oven until just set, about 25 – 30 minutes. It is done when a knife inserted in the center comes out clean. Cut into wedges and serve warm.
