  1. Preheat the oven to 400F.
  2. Add the oil to a 10" oven-safe pan (cast iron is ideal). Use a pastry brush or paper towel to coat the bottom and inner sides of the pan before preheating the pan.
  3. When the oil is heated, saute the scallion and garlic over medium heat for about 2 minutes, until translucent and softened.
  4. Add the greens and increase the heat to high, and briefly stir to coat with olive oil.
  5. Add the lemon juice, salt, pepper and paprika, and stir to combine.
  6. Cook down for about 2 minutes, stirring intermittently, until the greens are limp and the stems are softened.
  7. Turn off the heat and spread the greens into an even layer across the bottom of the pan.
  8. Pour the beaten eggs over the greens and immediately (carefully!) transfer the pan to the oven.
  9. Bake for 10 minutes, until a crust forms on top of the frittata, then arrange the brie slices on top.
  10. Bake an additional 10 minutes until golden brown and firm
  11. Cool slightly before serving.

Notes

Store leftovers in an airtight container in the fridge for up to a week. This dish also freezes very well: try individually wrapping slices that you can then take out one at a time to defrost for future breakfasts. Yield: 1x10" frittata; about 8 servings.
