Mediterranean Frittata

​HOW YUMMY DOES THIS LOOK!!! A quick and easy Mediterranean Frittata that will become your go to recipe for a healthy breakfast, lunch, or dinner!  Just change up your sides and you have a full healthy, delicious meal in under 30 minutes.

I LOVE LOVE LOVE Breakfast!  Most days it’s just some eggs and toast or an english muffin with peanut butter but if I have company or want a little something special, a Frittata is my go to breakfast!  First off it’s super healthy, so delicious, and once you have a basic recipe you can add anything you have in the fridge to make a number of different flavor combinations plus it’s quick and easy to prepare!

This Mediterranean Frittata is one of my favorites with lots of greek flavors!  Full of zucchini, cherry tomatoes, peppers, feta cheese, and oregano. I love Greece ~ I really think I should have been born there because I love their food, their weather, their amazing azure seas, their healthy lifestyle, their everything! As I write this, we are in the midst of a BLIZZARD warning! 15 – 50cm of snow!! I need a “I Dream of Jeannie” moment where I can wrinkle my nose and poof, I’m in Santorini! 🙂

An easy, healthy egg dish full of fresh vegetables that finishes cooking in the oven in 15 – 20 minutes …see notes below to find different variations on this recipe.

INGREDIENTS:

  • 8 eggs
  • 1/2 cup milk (I used skim)
  • 1/4 tsp red pepper flakes, optional
  • 1 – 2 TBSP olive oil
  • 2 small zucchini, ends trimmed and cut into bite size pieces
  • 1 small red pepper, cut into bit size pieces
  • 1 small green pepper, cut into bit size pieces
  • 1 cup cherry tomatoes, whole
  • 1 tsp dried oregano or 1 TBSP fresh oregano (I actually used a little fresh oregano and basil)
  • 1/4 cup crumbled feta cheese
  • salt and pepper to taste

PREPARATION:

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

In a large bowl, break eggs, add milk, season with salt and pepper and add red pepper flakes if using.  Whisk until well blended.  Set aside.

In a large ovenproof frying pan (non stick or cast iron), heat oil over medium high heat. Add zucchini and red and green peppers and cook for 3 – 5 minutes until slightly softened ~ it will continue to cook in the oven.  Add tomatoes and oregano and season with salt and pepper.  Add egg mixture to frying pan. Cook for a couple of minutes until the bottom of the frittata sets.  Spinkle on feta cheese and carefully put the frying pan into a preheated oven.

Cook for 15 – 20 minutes until the eggs are set in the middle. Turn on the broiler and broil until top of frittata is lightly browned.  Serve warm or at room temperature. ENJOY!

NOTE: This Frittata is very versatile.  Have it with breakfast with whole grain toast and a small fruit salad or for lunch or dinner with a side salad. Change up the flavors with whatever vegetables you have on hand ~ make it italian by adding some fresh or dried basil and some fresh buffalo mozzarella, add some ham and cheddar cheese with some green pepper and onion for a Denver Frittata ~ the possibilities are endless!

    HI DD! Your frittata looks DELI-CIOUS!! I agree, once you picked your basic ingredients, you can adapt your recipe every day if you want to do so, just open the fridge and choose what fresh veggie you’re going to indulge. I totally support your desire to “poof” suddenly transfer to Santorini or any other hot warm Greek island. Where I am right now in the south of France is for sure warmer than where you are – around the Bay – but we’re undergoing a wave of super cold Greenland wind, and I so wish I were on an island too! Yourfantastic frittata could do the trick, I’m sure!
