Zucchini Frittata

"The beauty of this recipe is it uses 8 cups of shredded zucchini. My 12 year old son grows his own zucchini and asks me frequently to make this for dinner. A family favorite, I usually serve it with tortilla chips, homemade salsa and fresh slices of cold melon."

Ready In:




  • Place the shredded zucchini in a towel or several layers of cheese cloth, gather ends and twist hard sqeezing out as much liquid as possible.
  • Heat oil and butter in a large oven proof skillet (I use cast iron) and saute onion and garlic for 30 seconds. Add the zucchini and cook the vegetables over moderately low heat, stirring often, until the zucchini is just tender. Pour off any liquid that collects in the pan.
  • Meanwhile, in a medium bowl, beat together eggs, milk, seasonings, and 2 Tbs. of the parmesean cheese.
  • Add to zucchini mixture, and cook, stirring often, until the eggs begin to set.
  • Sprinkle the Frittata with remainder parmesean cheese and place the pan under the broiler or in a very hot oven (500)until the top of the Frittata is lightly browned (this happens fast so keep a close watch so it doesn't burn).
  • Let stand a few minutes before slicing into wedges.

  2. I had this for breakfast this smorning, it was terrific. As a single person i scaled it down a LOT lol, but it was easy to make - a necessity at 7 am - and tasted good too. Sorry no photo, i was still half asleep lol


I'm a self-love coach who happens to love food. I cook almost daily for my husband of over 30 years and special needs daughter. I rarely follow a recipe exactly. I tweak them to my own taste. I have a few recipes that are uniquely my own.
