Indulge in a dish that’s as nutritious as it is delicious with our Savory Cottage Cheese Frittata. This recipe transforms simple ingredients into a delightful meal that’s perfect for any time of day, whether it’s a cozy breakfast, a light lunch, or an easy dinner. Packed with protein from eggs and cottage cheese, and bursting with the fresh flavors of baby spinach and sundried tomatoes, this frittata is a wholesome choice that doesn’t skimp on taste. The inclusion of feta and cheddar (or mozzarella) cheese adds a creamy depth that perfectly complements the tanginess of the tomatoes and the earthiness of the spinach. Let’s get started on creating this mouth-watering dish.


  • Cottage Cheese, 1 cup (choose full-fat for creaminess or low-fat for a lighter option)
  • Eggs, 9 large, the base of our frittata
  • Baby Spinach, 1 cup, adding a fresh, green vibrancy
  • Feta Cheese, ⅓ cup, crumbled (Note 1: Feta introduces a sharp tang that enhances the overall flavor profile)
  • Salt, ¼ teaspoon, to taste
  • Ground Pepper, ⅛ teaspoon, for a slight kick
  • Dried Oregano, 1 teaspoon, infusing the dish with Mediterranean aromas
  • Garlic Powder, ¼ teaspoon, for a hint of garlic without the overpowering punch
  • Sundried Tomatoes, ½ cup, cut into strips (Note 2: Opt for dry-stored sundried tomatoes for a concentrated tomato flavor without additional oil)
  • Grated Cheddar Cheese or Mozzarella, ⅓ cup, for a melty, gooey texture


  1. Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C) to ensure it’s ready for baking.
  2. Whisk together the eggs in a large mixing bowl until they’re completely blended. Stir in the cottage cheese, ensuring the mixture is uniform.
  3. Fold in the baby spinach, crumbled feta cheese, dried oregano, garlic powder, and the sundried tomatoes. Season with salt and pepper according to your preference.
  4. Pour the mixture into a greased baking dish, spreading it evenly. Sprinkle the top with your choice of grated cheddar or mozzarella cheese, covering the surface for a cheesy crust.
  5. Bake in the preheated oven for about 25 to 30 minutes, or until the frittata is set in the middle and the cheese on top is golden and bubbly.
  6. Let it cool slightly before slicing. This makes it easier to cut and serve, and it allows the flavors to meld together perfectly.
