This vegetable-studded frittata recipe is one of the quickest meals you can make. Make it for breakfast, or serve for lunch or dinner with a tossed salad and a slice of olive oil-drizzled crusty baguette.
Nutrition per serving may change if servings are adjusted.
2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
1½ cups thinly sliced red onion
1½ cups chopped zucchini
7 large eggs, beaten
½ teaspoon salt
¼ teaspoon freshly ground pepper
⅔ cup pearl-size or baby fresh mozzarella balls (about 4 ounces)
3 tablespoons chopped soft sun-dried tomatoes
¼ cup thinly sliced fresh basil
Position rack in upper third of oven; preheat broiler.
Heat oil in a large broiler-safe nonstick or cast-iron skillet over medium-high heat. Add onion and zucchini and cook, stirring frequently, until soft, 3 to 5 minutes.
Meanwhile, whisk eggs, salt and pepper in a bowl. Pour the eggs over the vegetables in the pan. Cook, lifting the edges to allow uncooked egg from the middle to flow underneath, until nearly set, about 2 minutes. Arrange mozzarella and sun-dried tomatoes on top and place the skillet under the broiler until the eggs are slightly browned, 1½ to 2 minutes. Let stand for 3 minutes. Top with basil.
To release the frittata from the pan, run a spatula around the edge, then underneath, until you can slide or lift it out onto a cutting board or serving plate. Cut into 4 slices and serve.

Love that this is gluten free AND vegetarian! Very easy to make, and I'm no gourmet cook! The zucchini at my grocery store was bad, so I substituted gray squash (which I had never eaten). It was good!

Didn't have basil, used Italian Seasoning - turned out great!

The base recipe for this is great and seems to be very versatile. I made it without sun dried tomatoes or basil and added some chiles. We would even make this again for dinner this week!

Quick and tasty
This recipe is surprisingly delicious and oh so very easy to make. You can add more ingredients if you wish- I added mushrooms and spinach. Start to finish in under 15 minutes. My entire family commented on how tasty it was. I have been cooking for over 35 years and am always looking for new and simple recipes.
Pros: Easy, fast, tasty, one pan means easy clean up
