Why is this Italian omelette called Florentine? Here’s a little history fact: anything with Florentine in the name generally refers to a dish with spinach in it, as the 16th century queen of France Catherine de’Medici was known to insist on having spinach with every meal. Nowadays, spinach dishes are known as “Florentine,” reflecting Catherine’s birthplace of Florence, Italy.
This is a great breakfast, lunch or dinner omelette your family will LOVE. For dinner, we would recommend serving a simple green lettuce salad on the side and some oven baked potatoes.
