Zucchini Frittata (Recipe)


✅ 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil (I use Kasandrinos)

✅ 1 cup ½ medium yellow onion, thinly sliced

✅ 3 cups 1 large zucchini, chopped

✅ 2 ounces Parmesan cheese, grated (about ½ cup), divided

✅ 8 large eggs

✅ ¾ teaspoon kosher salt
✅  ½ teaspoon black pepper

✅ ⅛ teaspoon paprika

✅ 3 tablespoons chopped flat-leaf parsley


1️⃣ Preheat oven to 400°F. Heat oil in a 9-inch cast-iron or ovenproof skillet over medium-high. Add onion, and cook, stirring occasionally, until softened, about 5 minutes. Add zucchini, and cook, stirring often, until zucchini is tender and brown in spots, 8 to 10 minutes.

2️⃣ Reserve 2 tablespoons cheese and set aside. Whisk together remaining cheese, eggs, salt, pepper, and paprika. Pour over vegetables in skillet, and cook, stirring gently, until eggs just begin to set, about 1 minute. Transfer skillet to preheated oven, and bake until edges are set but center is still slightly loose, 5 to 6 minutes.

3️⃣ Increase oven temperature to broil, and broil until center is set and top is lightly browned, about 2 minutes. Serve topped with reserved Parmesan and parsley.
