Spinach Rice Frittata

Frittata is an egg based dish similar to an omelette or quiche, with additional ingredients like meat, cheese, vegetables or pasta and flavored with herbs. This is a dish of Italian origin.
1 small onion
2 Tbsp butter
1 package frozen but thawed spinach
2 cups cooked rice
2 eggs
1/3 cup milk
1/3 cup of Parmesan  cheese
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1 cup mozzarella
Saute onion in butter. Add spinach, garlic, rice and Parmesan cheese; mix well. Combine eggs, milk and seasonings, stir into rice mixture. Turn into well buttered 2 quart casserole. Top with Mozzarella cheese. Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes or until cheese is melted.
This original recipe is a mild one, suitable even for kids. But if you are someone who likes a little fire on their palette, you may add some spices or add some chilli powder to the mix before baking.
