Easy Frittata with Greens and Goat Cheese

Bored with the same old scrambled eggs? This frittata with greens and goat cheese is super easy and ridiculously delicious. It whips up in minutes with just a few basic ingredients but tastes like you slaved all day! Better yet, use leftover vegetables and meat for an effortless meal your whole family will love!

 

I think eggs are a superhero food. Isn’t it mind-blowing how versatile they are? Just think about it for a minute…all the ways you can use eggs (unless you’re vegan and you use egg substitutes). I associate two feelings with eggs: happiness and fear. Why?

 

When I was a tiny little skinny girl, and before our food was polluted, mom would reward us with an egg dessert when we behaved well. The “dessert” consisted of either raw egg white or egg yolk and a cup of sugar beaten until fluffy. Luckily, my brother liked the whites and I the yolks, so nothing went to waste. When I think of that concoction now I throw up a little in my mouth, but back then it was the meaning of pure happiness.

Fast forward some years and I’m a young mom feeding my baby with a hard-boiled egg for the first time. She started to choke. I still get goosebumps just thinking about it. That fear of losing her was indescribable.

 

Eventually, the eggs and I met in the middle and developed a normal relationship. But I still think they are super cool. Don’t you? I especially love frittatas and omelets because you can use any leftover veggies and meat to make them, like in this bacon and greens frittata.

 

Easy recipe for greens and goat cheese frittata

What’s the difference between frittatas and omelets?

 

Short answer – the difference is in the cooking method. Both are easy to make.

 

FRITTATAS are made by mixing the eggs and cream with ingredients such as vegetables, greens, herbs, cheese, and sometimes meat, then first cooked in a cast iron skillet or oven-safe pan on the stovetop and then finished in the oven. Frittatas are more like a crustless quiche.

 

Cooking from the stovetop to the oven is so easy with a cast-iron skillet! It’s a staple in every kitchen and you will love how many meals you can make using your pan. It’s pretty much the only one I ever use. Make this frittata in a large 10-inch skillet or 4 little ones (I only use them when I have overnight guests to serve individual frittatas, because they look so fancy, ha!) Check out the ESSENTIALS box below.

 

OMELETS are made by mixing the eggs with milk and then cooked in a frying pan on the stove. You let the eggs cook without stirring until firm, then sprinkle with the filling and fold the mixture in half or in thirds to enclose its contents.

 

So next time you reach to make scrambled eggs, look what else you have laying around in the fridge. You’d be surprised how easy it is to create different flavors by mixing just a few new ingredients. Greens and goat cheese in combination with sun-dried tomatoes brighten the flavors of the frittata and you will definitely agree this dish is not only good for breakfast or brunch but deserves to be on your lunch and dinner table as well.

    I love these! I mean, I’ve made plenty of frittatas before, with various goodies and cheeses, but I never thought about using the small skillets. I bought some little ones a while back to make fun Dutch babies for my grand kids, but a single serving frittata is brilliant! Thanks!

    Having 4 laying hens and only 2 people to feed, we have to use a lot of eggs to keep up with those girls. Frittata is definitely in my repertoire, as is quiche – I’ll throw almost anything in there! I’ve never tried goat cheese, but only because it’s $8 for 3 oz here…
