Zucchini Parmesan Frittata
This zucchini parmesan frittata is incredibly easy to make and an excellent meal prep recipe for breakfast or lunch. It’s healthy too – eggs are a great source of protein and will provide long-lasting energy.
This recipe is perfect for brunch but also for meal prep! I love this recipe because I can easily meal prep a batch and save the rest in the fridge or freezer for later.
- 4 cups Grated Zucchini – I used two medium zucchini with a cheese grater.
- ¼ cup Grated Parmesan – Adds a lot of flavor to the recipe! I highly recommend using freshly grated parmesan.
- ½ cup Yellow Onion – You can also use red onion or white onion.
- ¼ cup Milk – Any kind of dairy or dairy-free (almond milk, oat milk, coconut milk etc) will work.
- 2 Garlic Cloves – Can be minced or finely chopped.
- Spices – This recipe uses 1 tsp oregano leaves, 1 tsp basil leaves, ¼ tsp salt and ¼ tsp ground pepper.
How To Make Zucchini Parmesan Frittata
Here’s an overview of how to make it with the full recipe instructions at the bottom of this blog post.
- Prep Ingredients – Grate the zucchini with a cheese grater. Squeeze out the excess moisture from zucchini into paper towels. Whisk together eggs, milk and spices.
- Saute – Cook garlic, onion and zucchini in cast iron skillet for 8-10 minutes, or until juices have cooked down from zucchini.
- Add Eggs – Pour the egg mixture into the pan, stirring everything together. Let cook 2 minutes or until edges begin to golden.
- Broil – Sprinkle parmesan cheese on top of eggs. Broil for 2-5 minutes or until top is set and slightly browning.
- Serve – Slice and serve while still warm. This tastes great on its own or with salsa, sour cream, plain yogurt, hot sauce etc.
Storage: Leftovers should be stored in an airtight container in the fridge for 3-4 days or frozen for up to 3 months (Yes, you can freeze eggs!) Just reheat in the oven or microwave to serve.
- Squeeze Zucchini Before Cooking – Grated zucchini contains a lot of excess moisture. Add it to paper towels or a clean kitchen towel and squeeze out as much liquid as you can before cooking.
- Use Fresh Parmesan – It really adds incredible flavor! I highly recommend using it instead of the jar version.
- Eggs Cook Fast – The eggs only take a few minutes to cook so there’s no need to sautee them too long.
