    1

    Prepare the Ingredients

    Coarsely chop fontina. Cut mushrooms into ¼" slices. Coarsely chop spinach. Slice tomato into six ¼" rounds. Place tomato slices between two paper towels and gently press. This will help absorb excess moisture. Trim ends from baguette and cut into six slices on a slight angle. Combine liquid egg, ¾ the fontina (reserve remaining to top frittata), half the cream, ¼ tsp. salt, and a pinch of pepper in a mixing bowl

    Cook the Vegetables

    Heat 2 tsp. olive oil in a medium oven-safe non-stick pan (or cast iron skillet) over medium-high heat. Place mushrooms in hot pan and stir occasionally until lightly browned, 4-5 minutes. Add spinach to pan and cook until wilted, 30 seconds to 1 minute. Remove from burner. Reserve pan; no need to wipe clean. Allow vegetables to cool enough to handle.
