From my cooking post the other day, I had a couple who requested our frittata recipe.  It's not really a recipe, it's more of a clean the fridge type dish, but here's basically what we do.  It's a quick dish and a great way to get veggies into my kids' bellies.



8-10 eggs
1/2 cup milk
3/4 cup shredded cheese
1 1/2-2 cups chopped additions, any combination you'd like (such as onions, peppers, broccoli, shredded carrots, kale, mushrooms, spinach, bacon, ham, sausage, veggie meats)
2 T of chopped herbs or 1 T dried herbs
Salt to taste

Whisk eggs and milk.  Stir in cheese, additions, herbs and salt.  Pour into greased pie plate, evenly distribute the additions. 

Bake 350 for 45 min-1 hour.  Baking time is different each time, depending on your veggies.

To make sure it's done, shake the pie plate and make sure the middle isn't soupy or jiggly.  As it cools, the frittata will fall a little bit, totally normal.

Serve it up with coffee cake and you'll have a happy household. 

*Note...if you have a couple more eggs or a bit more produce, you can throw in extras, just might need to be cooked a bit more.  Frittatas are very forgiving .


  1. Thanks for the recipe; it looks very hearty and delish.

  2. Yummy! I haven't had a frittata in a while and this looks delicious. I have plenty of eggs sitting on the counter at the moment as well :)

  3. Whoop! Whoop! Thanks for sharing! Totally pinning this one to make (maybe I'll put it on the menu for this week)!
