Spinach Frittata with sun-dried tomatoes, zucchini, and goat cheese is a wickedly flavorful breakfast, perfect for sharing with friends and family!
I recently whipped up this frittata for my brother and his life companion a few weekends ago, and they absolutely destroyed it. Okay, okay, my brother destroyed it…his lady is blessed with self-restraint around food.
Lack of self-restraint around food runs in our family.
Moving right along.
This frittata is quite the crowd-pleaser!
I’ve made it on numerous occasions with slight variations on the cheese selections. It’s one of those nutritious breakfasts you can put on repeat over and over for your family, because: vegetables. It also happens to make an awesome make-ahead breakfast for those of us busy folk who have no qualms about eating the same meals throughout the week!
So let’s do this!
How to Make a Spinach Frittata with Sun-Dried Tomatoes, Goat Cheese, and Zucchini:
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
Begin by cooking the spinach and zucchini. To do so, add the oil, spinach, and sliced zucchini to a 10-inch cast iron skillet and cover. Cook, stirring occasionally until spinach has wilted, about 2 minutes. Add the sun-dried tomatoes and a sprinkle of sea salt. Continue cooking, uncovered, until zucchini has some golden-brown color to it.
Beat the eggs and buttermilk, cheddar cheese, and sea salt in a mixing bowl. I do so with a fork, but you can also use a hand mixer or whisk.
Pour the egg mixture into the cast iron skillet over the vegetable mixture and use a wooden spoon to distribute the vegetables evenly. Sprinkle on the goat cheese.
Transfer the cast iron skillet to the oven and bake 25 to 30 minutes, or until the frittata has set up.
Slice and serve!
- Toss in any additional vegetables, such as grated carrot, sweet potato, etc.
- If you tolerate onions and garlic, sauté ½ a small yellow onion and 3 cloves of garlic with the vegetables.
- Change up the cheese options to your heart’s delight!
- Add fresh basil or other herbs.
- Add cooked bacon or sausage for a meatier frittata.
