Easy Spring Frittata

A frittata is simply a baked omelet, accented with any ingredients you either have on hand or just love! Don't over complicate this recipe and eat it anytime, for any meal.

Course: Breakfast, Main Course
Servings: 4
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 8 oz mixed mushrooms cremini, oyster, shiitake, etc., sliced or torn
  • 1 cup chopped leeks green and white part or 1 onion, thinly sliced
  • 2 cloves minced garlic
  • 1 tbsp small yellow potato grated (about 1/2 cup)
  • 10 tbsp large eggs*
  • 1/4 cup full-fat or 2% plain Greek yogurt
  • 1 cup grated sharp cheese divided
  • tbsp Salt and pepper
  • 1/4 cup chopped parsley or basil optional
  1. Place a rack in upper third of oven; preheat to broil.
  2. Heat oil in 8-inch non-stick, or well-seasoned cast-iron, ovenproof skillet over medium heat. Add mushrooms; cook, stirring often, until starting to soften, about 5 minutes. Add leeks and garlic; cook, stirring often, until softened, liquid has evaporated and mushrooms browning, 5-6 minutes. Add grated potato and season with good pinch salt and pepper. Cook 1-2 minutes.
  3. Meanwhile, whisk together eggs, yogurt, 1/2 cup cheese, a good pinch each salt and pepper and herbs, if using, in bowl or large measuring cup.
  4. Pour egg mixture into skillet, shaking the pan to evenly distribute among veggies. Using a spatula, gently move egg mixture around pan, then let mixture cook, without stirring, until its edges begin to set, about 2-3 minutes.
  5. Sprinkle top with remaining cheese and transfer skillet to oven. Broil frittata until golden brown and center is set, about 3-4 minutes. Let sit for 10 minutes before serving.
Recipe Notes

*If you have extra-large eggs go with 8, but if you have less than 10 large eggs 8 or 9 will also work. Don’t go out to buy more eggs if you only have 8! Frittata may just need 1 less minute to broil with less eggs. Do not fuss over this simple dish 😊.

So many options!
Substitute other vegetables (or none at all) in place of mushrooms and leeks:
• asparagus or broccoli (cut in 1-inch pieces) with sliced green onion or shallot
• omit onion altogether and add another veg, such as chopped red bell pepper or zucchini
• omit all veg, keep garlic, serve frittata with a BIG green leafy salad on the side
• feel free to add a little crumbled bacon or turkey sausage to the pan, before cooking veg
• double (or triple) amount of fresh herbs and use creamy goat cheese
