Apple & Zucchini Frittata

Another Weekend – Another Delicious Breakfast!If you don’t ever take the time on weekends to make a delicious breakfast, I am sorry (and sorry for your family)! Now I am not saying that every day on every weekend we whip up some delicious breakfast, but I usually try to make at least one yummy breakfast (or brunch) over the weekend!

This Frittata combines the last of your summer zucchini with some fall-fresh apples and tops it all off with some cheese! When I saw Jen over at My Kitchen Addition post this recipe, I knew we had a winner on our hands. Now – I know that Jen’s version is much more beautiful as well as probably having a better flavor (I highly suggest the sautee then broil method, although my slacker version of just baking the whole thing did work) but this is delicious any way you slice it (and slicing it will be done to get it out of the container!)

So happy weekend, carve some time out of your fall weekend plans to feed your stomachs as well as your hearts!

Apple & Zucchini Frittata
Prep time
Cook time
Total time
Serves: 4
  • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter
  • 2 eggs + 2 egg whites (or just 4 eggs)
  • ¼ cup milk
  • Kosher salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • ½ cup shredded cheddar cheese, divided
  • 1 granny smith apple, thinly sliced
  • 1 small zucchini, halved lengthwise and thinly sliced (about 1 cup)
  1. Preheat the broiler to low. In a small nonstick skillet (8 – 9 inches), heat the butter over medium heat. Allow the butter to brown slightly, and swirl it around the bottom of the pan.
  2. Meanwhile, whisk together the eggs, egg whites, and milk. Season with salt and pepper, and add about ⅔ of the cheddar cheese. Stir into the egg mixture.
  3. Reduce the heat on the skillet to medium low, and add the egg and cheese mixture. Cover, and cook for about 6 – 8 minutes, until the eggs are slightly puffy, though not completely set on the top. Arrange the apple and zucchini slices on top of the eggs and sprinkle with the remaining cheese. Broil (on the low setting) for about 10 minutes, until the eggs are fully cooked and the frittata is golden.
  4. OR
  5. Place the egg in a casserole dish & bake in oven (at 350, not on broil) for about 10 minutes until puffy and starting to set and then arrange your apple/zucchini as stated above and continue to bake/broil until golden. Serve immediately, garnished with fresh parsley, if desired.
