Frittata is an egg-based Italian dish similar to an omelette or crustless quiche or scrambled eggs, enriched with additional ingredients such as meats, cheeses or vegetables. The word frittata is Italian and roughly translates to "fried".


For the vegetables:

  • 1 small onion, diced
  • ½ cup sweet potato, scrubbed and grated
  • ½ cup mushrooms, diced small
  • 1 cup broccoli, cut into bite-sized pieces
  • ¼ teaspoon pepper
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon paprika

For the eggs:

  • 8 eggs
  • ¼ cup dairy or non-dairy milk
  • ½ cup grated cheese of choice (Cheddar, Monterey Jack, or other), divided
  • ¼ teaspoon pepper
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon paprika


  1. Preheat oven to 400°. Heat olive oil in an oven-safe high-sided skillet or frying pan on medium high heat. Add onion and sauté for two minutes.
  2. Add grated sweet potato to the skillet and stir, flattening to get the bottoms crispy. Cook without stirring for about 4 minutes.
  3. Add broccoli florets and chopped mushrooms. Cook for about 5 minutes, stirring frequently.
  4. Add pepper, salt, and paprika to the vegetables and stir well.
  5. For the eggs: While the vegetables are cooking, combine eggs, milk, ¼ cup grated cheese, pepper, salt, and paprika. Whisk to combine well.
  6. Reduce heat to low and spread the vegetables out evenly in the pan. Slowly pour the egg mixture over the vegetables, and tilt the pan so the eggs spread out and are an even layer. Do not stir!
  7. Once the mixture just sets around the outside, move pan to preheated oven and bake until eggs are set, about 10 minutes. Sprinkle remaining ¼ cup of cheese on top 5 minutes into the cooking process.
  8. Garnish with your favorite fresh herbs or scallions and enjoy!

Frittatas are a perfect way to use up just about anything left in your fridge (from greens to cheese to leftover veggies, so have fun and substitute with your favorite vegetables!
