~breakfast for dinner~

I think that's what it is. When there's a chill in the air and you're having a lazy evening at home, it hits the spot. Tonight on the menu:
Spinach & Sun Dried Tomato Frittata:

vegetable oil cooking spray
2 teaspoon olive oil
1 small shallot, chopped
1 cup packed fresh spinach, chopped
4 whole eggs
4 egg whites
8 sun-dried tomato halves, chopped
1/2 cup grated Asiago
2 tablespoon chopped fresh basil
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
4 slices whole-wheat toast
2 cups fresh berries

Heat oven to 425°. Coat 4 small baking dishes with cooking spray. Set aside. Heat oil in a large pan over medium heat. Cook shallot until soft but not brown, 2 to 3 minutes. Add spinach; cook 2 to 3 minutes. Remove from heat.
Lightly whisk eggs and egg whites in a bowl. Stir in sun-dried tomatoes, cheese, basil, spinach mixture, salt and pepper. Spoon into baking dishes; bake until firm in the center, 12 to 14 minutes. Serve each with 1 slice toast and 1/2 cup berries.

I love breakfast for dinner, and that recipe sounds delish! I needed an excuse to buy the cute little individual baking dishes at Goodwill that I saw last night!
