I know what you’re thinking: this looks like a frittata cake, as it’s made smack dab in the middle of a cake pan. Fret not, my friends: you can also use a cast iron (or oven-safe) skillet, casserole dish, or pie pan.

I simply used a 10-inch cake pan to change up my ush frittata aethetic. Savory egg cake bake? I’ll eat the whole thing!

Zucchini, Goat Cheese, and Tomato Frittata is a fresh, flavorful breakfast or brunch! That goat cheese is everything!
Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 50 minutes
Total Time 1 hour
Servings: 10 -inch frittata


  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • ½ yellow onion finely chopped
  • 2 cups chopped zucchini 3 small zucchini squash
  • 1 cup cherry/grape heirloom tomatoes halved
  • 3 cloves garlic minced
  • ½ teaspoon sea salt
  • 8 eggs well beaten
  • 4 ounces crumbled goat cheese


  • Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.
  • Heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the onion and saute, stirring occasionally until translucent, about 5 to 8 minutes.
  • Add the chopped zucchini, tomato, garlic, and sea salt. Continue sauteing until zucchini has softened but is still al dente, and the skins of the tomatoes begin to wilt, about 5 to 8 minutes.
  • In a mixing bowl, whisk the eggs until well-beaten. Whisk in the crumbled goat cheese.
  • Transfer the sauteed veggie mixture to an 10-inch round baking pan or casserole dish. Pour in the egg/goat cheese mixture and use a spoon to evenly spread the veggies and eggs in the pan.
  • Place on the center rack of the oven with a baking sheet underneath (just in case - to catch any egg that spills over). Bake for 32 to 40 minutes, until eggs have set up and are golden-brown on top. Let frittata sit 15 minutes before slicing and serving.

Questions and Reviews

  1. Frittatas are one of my favorite breakfast meals, it’s just so easy and versatile. And this…so beautiful!

  2. When I saw goat cheese in the title, I got excited- Seriously, the BEST cheese out there and mixed into a frittata with the tomatoes and zucchini- This would be an awesome breakfast!

  3. I’m all for a good frittata cake and this one looks like summer perfection! All of those colors lure me right in. This, salad and a glass of wine is all I need in life!

  4. Yum! What a beautiful frittata. 🙂 This is a perfect way to use up all of those cherry tomatoes I have sitting on the counter at home. They spoil too fast!

  5. Goat cheese is the best! And stunning colors of the veggies in your pictures- love this frittata 🙂

  6. Beautiful, beautiful frittata! Zucchini’s always on extra duty around my house! We’ve been zoodling it up like crazy over here. Send some over here! I’m still hungry after my breakfast today!

  7. This sounds wonderful. It could get me to eat eggs for breakfast – or I’d make it for lunch. Goat cheese seems to be a popular thing at this moment, and it will get me willing to try all sorts of things.

  8. The brunch of my dreams, right here! I so agree–what ISN’T good with zucchini?! Ummmm nothing.

      1. Thankyou! Our oven’s old & a bit tricky, we always go a little under the stated time so things won’t sear on the bottom, & not being greased when it should really wouldn’t help matters. :]

        But we always wind up with a bunch of our neighbors’ bumper crops of zucchini & tomatoes, & always look for new things to do with them (we’ve made enough zucchini bread over the years to feed an army). This looks delish!

  9. I just made this and it’s delicious! I wouldn’t change a thing, except I’m low carbing so kept the onion to 1/2 cup chopped and 3/4 cup tomatoes. Myfitness pal logs this in at 301 calories and net carbs for 4 servings. I could not be more delighted with this dish!

    1. I’m so happy you enjoyed the recipe, Sandie! Thanks so much for the feedback and for the nutrition stats – that’s super helpful! xoxo

  10. Would love to use some of your recipes but you don’t have the protein, calorie or carbs posted?? I don’t prepare anything without knowing the breakdown. Add them to your recipes.
