A few shortcuts, like store-bought shredded cheese and a bag of pre-washed spinach, make this frittata easy to drop into your weekly rotation. Ready in a quick 20 minutes, frittata wedges make a great on-the-go breakfast option since they are generally sturdy and travel-friendly. This frittata reheats very well so make a few on Sunday for a week's worth of speedy breakfasts. Swap in chopped kale and shredded mozzarella for an easy variation. Add a half a grapefruit or small fruit salad for a filling breakfast. Serve over a bed of fresh arugula spritzed with lemon juice for a light lunch, or add a full green salad and some creamy grits for a generous brunch option. Make sure to drain the spinach well so it doesn't water out in the baking process.
