Vegetable Frittata

A frittata is simply a different version of an omlett, little thicker usually finished in the oven and very simple to make. Serve for breakfast, brunch, lunch, or dinner and even as an appetizer.

Serves 2
Prep time: 10 minutes
Total Time: 15 minutes


6 eggs, beaten
3 tablespoons vegetable oil
1 carrot finely diced
1/4 cup zucchini, finely diced
1/4 cup yellow squash, finely diced
1 small onion, finely diced
1/4 cup milk
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg, freshly grated
2 cups shredded Cheddar cheese
salt and pepper to taste


In a medium bowl, combine eggs and remaining ingredients, stir. In a large oven proof non stick skillet or frying pan, heat oil over medium heat. Pour in egg mixture and cook until slightly brown on bottom and mostly set. Place frittata under broiler in oven on middle rack. Watch closely and continue to cook until completely set.
Remove and turn out onto place and serve.
