Vegetable Frittata Recipe

Oven Omelett recipe

On days when a fast and simple breakfast is needed, a basic frittata recipe is a great way to save time. Just prepare and stick in the oven while you get ready or shower, and it is ready by the time you are done. (Try these ham and cheese muffin cups for another super-fast breakfast idea)

Basic Frittata Recipe

This recipe is very versatile and can be changed to fit your family’s tastes. You can use leftovers from the night before and pre-chop as you put them away to save extra time.

In fact, I feel bad even calling this a “recipe” since it is such a loose term, but I’ve made many variations of this:

  • Corned beef and cabbage oven frittata with leftover corned beef and cabbage
  • An Asian themed frittata with leftover vegetable fried “rice” and meat
  • A tex-mex themed frittata with leftover taco meat and toppings
  • A French version with Brie, Apple and Chicken
  • An Italian favorite with Ricotta blended into the eggs and ham and cheese added

Whatever your family enjoys, throw the leftovers into this recipe and call it a frittata!

  1. This is a great recipe and one I use all the time.  My favorite veggie to add that wasn’t mentioned was diced tomatoes which help to keep the omelet/quiche moist.  I dislike it when it is very dry and since I don’t do dairy anymore, the tomatoes are my substitute for what cheese used to do.  I like it with the red bell peppers, onions, chopped fresh spinach, tomatoes (lots!) and bacon.

  2. Just made this for Christmas breakfast. It turned out great!

  3. Making this for dinner right now. Added onion, fresh chopped spinach, bacon,and diced tomatoes. Smells delicious in here 🙂

  4. I searched for an easy recipe to prepare while on vacation. We had some veggies, eggs, cheese, but not much else to work with. This easy and tasty dish was perfect!

  5. How much meat should we use for this? Half a pound, a pound? Or is it more how ever much meat you want?

    • To your preference and taste. I usually just add in whatever I have so it varies a lot.

  6. I would like to know what size cast iron skillet you use??? Thanks!
