This Mushroom Lover’s Egg Skillet with Spinach is an updated version of a recipe I made many years ago. It’s a tasty combination of mushrooms, spinach, and plenty of cheese, and when I updated the photos I couldn’t resist using a slightly bigger pan for more servings. Because if you’re going to go to the trouble to make a tasty egg dish like this, you probably wouldn’t mind being able to reheat it for breakfast for a couple of days, right?

For the updated version I used 16 ounces of brown Cremini mushrooms for lots of mushroom flavor, with a 5 oz. package of baby spinach (which didn’t have to be washed or chopped!) And I used two full cups of grated Mozzarella for lots of cheesy flavor, but you can certainly use less cheese if you prefer. If you like mushrooms, spinach, and eggs, this is a delicious and easy meatless dish that would be good any time of day.

The original recipe for this used a smaller frying pan and was called a frittata and you can see the printer-friendly version of that recipe if you were a fan. This new version is definitely more of an egg skillet, and I’m adding it to the category for Skillet Meals. Check out my round-up of Low-Carb and Keto Skillet Meals if you like the idea of cooking a whole meal in one pan. And hope you enjoy trying this if you’re a mushroom lover!

Mushroom Lover's Egg Skillet with Spinach is a great meatless dish for breakfast, lunch, or dinner!

Ingredients

  • 16 oz. mushrooms, cleaned and sliced (see notes)
  • 1 T + 1 tsp. olive oil (will depend on the pan)
  • 4 green onions, sliced
  • 5 oz. package baby spinach leaves
  • 12 eggs
  • 1 tsp. Spike Seasoning
  • 2 cups grated mozzarella cheese, divided

Instructions

  1. I used a large non-stick skillet that was 12 inches across and about 3 inches deep for this recipe.
  2. Heat 1 T olive oil and then saute brown Cremini mushrooms for about 5 minutes. 
  3. While mushrooms cook, beat eggs until the whites and yolks are well-combined.
  4. Measure out 2 cups of grated Mozzarella (or the amount you prefer.)
  5. When mushrooms are softened and lightly browned, add another tsp. oil with green onions and then spinach and cook a couple of minutes.
  6. Then add eggs, using a turner to separate the veggies so eggs run down to the bottom of the pan.
  7. Add about half the cheese and stir into the eggs. 
  8. Then cook with a lid on for about 4 minutes, or until eggs are set but still soft.
  9. Top with the rest of the cheese, serve hot and enjoy!

Notes

I buy the pre-sliced Cremini mushrooms for this recipe. If you’re slicing your own, don’t make slices too thin.

You can make this on the weekend, cut into eight wedges, and store in the fridge, then reheat for breakfast. (Be careful not to microwave too long or the eggs will turn rubbery.)

  1. Can I put this in the oven to bake instead..?

    • I’m sure you can but I haven’t done it that way so I wouldn’t be able to give exact instructions. I’d cook at 375F for about 25-30 minutes, but that is just a guess. I’d still pre-cook the mushrooms.

  2. I would like to make a smoked salmon, capers, onions tomatoes cheddar friatta.  Recipes?

    • I don’t have a frittata recipe with ingredients close to that, and It seems like a lot of things with different cooking times so I couldn’t guess how to do it without trying it. I assume you entered those ingredients into Google with the word “frittata”. I would start there.

  3. Eggs, cheese, and lots of 'shrooms… What's not to love. Pinned!

  4. I use my cast iron black frying pan when I make frittatas.. Works great~

  5. Mmmmmmmm!!! I can't wait to make this!! You really are an incredible cook!

  6. Jill that's just a cheap pan I bought at Big Lots! It's not completely ovenproof, but when I broil the frittata I just keep the handle hanging out of the oven!

  7. Looks absolutely delicious! What pan do you use, if you don't mind me asking? I don't think I have a skillet that is broiler proof. Would love to buy a nonstick broiler proof pan.

  8. I'm glad people are liking this! Lacey, yes a non-stick pan will make a big difference here.

  9. Mmm! Just tried this with Mushrooms, Garlic, and Asiago-Parmesean grated cheese and it turned out lovely. I will definitely use a nonstick pan next time, though! Thanks!

  10. Made it yesterday. Fabulous!!

  11. Mmmmmm…frittata..one of my favorites and that looks fantastic!

  12. Great frittata Kalyn! I love light dishes and this one looks yummy too.

  13. I think it’s interesting how many people have commented on this simple recipe. Obviously I’m not the only one who loves dishes like this.

    Simona, love the idea of growing your own mushrooms. That does sound really fun.

  14. I am currently growing this kind of mushroom in my house. I am not yet sure whether it is worth it, money wise, but it is certainly a lot of fun to see them growing. I got the kit from a local vendor and it is called Mushroom Adventures.

  15. Mmmm, this looks good, Kalyn!

    -Elizabeth

  16. frittata must be the dish for the vegetable gardener. a great way to use home grown veg

    thanks

  17. That frittata looks so good! Nice and simple and yet so tasty.

  18. that is a truly gorgeous and soul-satisfying meal.

  19. Being a mushroom lover, this is right up my alley! Looks great.
