The Manly Chef is BACK! Check it out and check out his site.

In preparation for the upcoming hunting season I have been periodically raiding my freezer for game meat from last year’s hunts to make room for meat from this year’s planned hunts (fingers crossed). In conjunction with those raids, our gardens have been producing some amazing spinach this year  so I put my thinking cap on and developed this delicious dish.

The cool thing about frittatas, although the name lacks in manliness, is that they can be cooked over the camp fire in a cast iron Dutch Oven. Certainly no one will question you masculinity when you pull this bad boy from the fire…. Enjoy!
