Easy 10 Minute Frittata with Goat Cheese, Olives & Green Onions

This easy frittata recipe will hit the spot with whatever you have on hand! Cook on the stovetop and finish in the oven for a perfectly cooked fritatta.

Whenever I hear “frittata” I think “too time consuming for me.” I don’t know why I have this in my head…maybe because I didn’t actually know what a frittata was until about 5 years ago, and I had previously equated it with food fancier than my palate and skills allowed. I was wrong (that’s been known to happen once or twice).

Now that I’ve realized the fallacy of those beliefs, it’s one of my favorite go-to breakfast dishes.

This easy frittata recipe is super satisfying and so easy to tweak with whatever you have on hand. It’s a great option when you have guests for breakfasts or when you need a quick, health meal before heading out the door. You can easily double or triple this – just increase the size of your pan accordingly. I used my 8” OXO nonstick frypan that is oven safe.

What’s the difference between an omelet and a frittata?

Frittatas are cooked in a cast iron pan or oven-safe skillet because they are started on the stovetop and then finished in the oven, whereas omelets are only cooked on a stovetop. I love frittatas because when you finish them in the oven they get puffy and airy. This airiness usually goes doesn’t when it cools off, but leaves the frittata feeling light!

What is good in a Frittata?

Uhhh anything! Seriously. Whatever you’d put in an omelette or essentially whatever you have on hand! You could add peppers, different cheeses, mushrooms, you name it!

Description

This 10 minute frittata will give you the protein and nutrients you need to start your day strong!


Scale

Ingredients

  • 12 green onions, chopped (all the white and most of the green)
  • 10 or so kalamata olives, chopped
  • 1 handful spinach, chopped
  • 12 tablespoons goat cheese
  • 2 eggs, whisked well
  • salt & pepper
  • 1 teaspoon ghee or olive oil

Instructions

1. Preheat your oven broiler to high and place a rack in the top third of the oven.

2. Over medium heat, melt the ghee or warm the olive oil in your skillet. Cook the onions, spinach and olives for 2-3 minutes.

3. Add salt and pepper to the whisked wells and then pour the eggs over the onion mixture, slightly tipping the pan to spread them across the bottom if necessary.

4. Sprinkle the goat cheese on top and continue to cook until the eggs are almost set.

5. Remove the pan from heat and put it under the broiler to brown for a few minutes. If you whisked your eggs well, it should puff up a little bit.

    Frittatas are SO easy to make ahead for a delicious, protein packed and fast weekday breakfast or lunch! They’re a staple for me, I make one practically every weekend for the week ahead.

    This is such a great recipe. I omitted the olives and added an extra egg while and am a huge fan! I was so tire of scrambles so this is perfect!

    I can do this! Basically put my omelette in the oven. When I’m back on dairy I’ll try it. I want it with the goat cheese!

      Yes, you can do this! I’m currently off cheese too (so sad!), and I’m looking forward to having it back in my diet! It adds so much flavor!
