Zucchini and Red Onion Frittata with Cheddar and Feta

Zucchini and Red Onion Frittata with Cheddar and Feta

A while back I posted a video of Veronica helping me cook, and a few of you asked what we were making. It was a simple quiche, which I make all the time. I also make a lot of frittatas. They are kind of like a crustless quiche and they can be eaten for breakfast or even served for lunch or dinner with a salad. I kind of think they're the perfect food, and they're relatively lowfat as well.

They're so easy to make that I let Veronica help every time.

Zucchini and Red Onion Frittata with Cheddar and Feta

Serves 4-6

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 zucchini diced
  • 1 small red onion diced
  • 8 eggs
  • 1/2 cup feta cheese
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • salt and pepper to taste

*Variations: You can make a frittata with anything. I often add chopped spinach or you could toss in mushrooms or tomatoes as well.

*Accompaniments: This frittata is great served with a little salsa and avocado. And Greg loves to douse his in hot sauce.

Begin by dicing the red onion and adding it to the pan with the olive oil. I like to sautee the onion until it begins to carmelize a bit and then I throw in the zucchini. Add in the red pepper flakes and a bit of salt and peper. Stirring occasionally, sautee everything on medium heat until browned and fragrant.

While the vegetables are cooking beat the eggs in a separate bowl until frothy.

When the vegetables are finished, toss them into a greased pie plate and pour the eggs over. Stir loosely.

Bake at 375 for 20-25 minutes, until the eggs have puffed and the top is browned a bit. 

Enjoy!

  7. I know, its been a while! Greg was just saying this morning that it had been too long. So in the middle of making that frittata this morning, I whipped out the camera and decided to throw together the post.

  9. OK Claire, I came home starving! Saw your post and checked my fridge. Had broccoli slaw from Trader Joe’s, onion, cheese and eggs. So my frittata is in the oven…and I am sipping wine in mouth-watering anticipation. Thanks! I’ll let you know how it turns out.

  10. Oh also added chopped fresh tomatoes to the broccoli-onion saute…and just came back for my second helping of delicious. Great inspiration!

  11. Yay! See, thats exactly what I love about frittatas — most of the time you have enough stuff on hand to whip one up without having to go to the store!

  16. This looks really yummy. I like that it can be for breakfast or dinner.

    Comment by Kathy on January 3, 2011 at 10:35 am

  17. Yes, that exactly why I love frittatas so much!

    Comment by Claire Bidwell Smith on January 3, 2011 at 11:00 am

  18. Question: Can this be made ahead of time? If so, do you know how long it would take to cook? Thanks.

    Comment by Melissa on November 29, 2011 at 10:02 am

  19. You know, I wouldn’t really advise making it ahead of time. Letting raw eggs sit like that might be kind of weird. You could definitely make the vegetable/cheese mixture ahead of time and then pour the eggs in at the last minute!

  20. Thank you so much. I thought about cooking it and reheating, but that would probably make it rubbery. Love your website. Thanks.
