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
1 1/2 cups thinly sliced red onion
1 1/2 cups chopped zucchini
7 large eggs, beaten
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
2/3 cup pearl-size or baby fresh mozzarella balls (about 4 ounces)
3 tablespoons chopped soft sun-dried tomatoes
1/4 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, 1 1/2 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.
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
