Mozzarella, Basil & Zucchini Frittata

One of the quickest dinners you can prepare is this frittata recipe with lots of vegetables. Make it for breakfast or lunch or dinner and serve it with a tossed salad and a slice of crusty bread drizzled with olive oil.


  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 ½ cups thinly sliced red onion
  • 1 ½ cups chopped zucchini
  • 7 large eggs, beaten
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon freshly ground pepper
  • ⅔ cup pearl-size or baby fresh mozzarella balls (about 4 ounces)
  • 3 tablespoons chopped soft sun-dried tomatoes
  • ¼ cup thinly sliced fresh basil


Instructions Checklist

  • Step 1 : Position rack in upper third of oven; preheat broiler.
  • Step 2: Heat oil in a large broiler-safe nonstick or cast-iron skillet over medium-high heat. Add onion and zucchini and cook, stirring frequently, until soft, 3 to 5 minutes.
  • Step 3 : In the meantime, combine the eggs, salt, and pepper in a bowl. Over the vegetables in the pan, pour the eggs. Cook for about 2 minutes, raising the edges to let the middle’s raw egg ooze below. Place the skillet to the broiler for 1 1/2 to 2 minutes, or until the eggs are slightly browned. Sprinkle mozzarella and sun-dried tomatoes over top. Observe for three minutes. Add basil on top.
  • Step 4: Run a spatula around the frittata’s edge and then below the pan until you can pull or slide it out onto a cutting board or serving platter. Serve after cutting into 4 slices.
