Fast & Healthy Frittata Recipes

We love waking up to a plateful of eggs in the morning, but flipping omelet after omelet can be time-consuming. Luckily, frittatas are here to save the day! Whether you’re in need of a hearty breakfast or a quick dinner, these healthy frittata recipes are surefire winners.

Move over, omelets—frittatas are our new go-to when we’re craving eggs. You can dress up frittatas just like an omelet with almost any filling you want (think veggies, bacon, and lots and lots of cheese). But unlike omelets, frittatas can serve a family fast. And unlike most egg recipes, a four-serving frittata cooks all at once without any flipping or fuss. Try our favorite fast and healthy frittata recipes to shake up your morning routine, impress at your next brunch, or serve up a quick and delish dinner.

1. Zucchini and Tomato Frittata

When it comes to cooking up this frittata recipe, you can make it a little more special and a lot tastier by using a few summer ingredients from your garden. If you’ve got a few spare cherry tomatoes and a small zucchini, toss them into your skillet alongside eggs, mozzarella, and walnuts. Just one bite of this easy veggie frittata (ready in just 30 minutes!), and it’ll be your new go-to brunch recipe.

2. Asparagus and Prosciutto Frittata

When you’re craving eggs and bacon in the morning, this prosciutto-filled frittata is a healthier (and delicious!) swap. Fresh asparagus spears and prosciutto make a mouthwatering filling, and mixing in a pinch of thyme with the eggs makes this recipe so much better than bland scrambled eggs. To finish it off, we topped this frittata recipe with a layer of ooey-gooey cheddar cheese.

3. Greens, Eggs, and Ham Frittata

Filled with healthy greens like kale and spinach, along with the classic breakfast staples eggs and ham, this frittata recipe will easily satisfy everyone at your table. Plus, it has two full cups of cheese mixed in with the eggs—what more could we want?

4. Greek-Style Frittata

This gorgeous Greek frittata bears a striking resemblance to your favorite pizza, but it’s actually eggs and dried tomato slices that give it the appearance of pizza dough and pepperoni. Roasted red peppers and crumbly feta cheese help give this skillet breakfast its Greek-inspired flavors, but you can also change up this recipe by using mozzarella cheese or adding basil pesto. No matter how you make it, this frittata is sure to disappear fast!

5. Two-Potato Frittata

You can never go wrong with breakfast potatoes and eggs, especially when you make a frittata with a mix of sweet potatoes and Yukon golds. Of course, it’s not just potatoes and eggs—this frittata also has a touch of sharp flavor thanks to red onion wedges. It takes only seven ingredients and 28 minutes to throw together this healthy recipe, making it great for breakfast on a hurried morning or a last-minute addition to brunch.

6. Zucchini and Feta Frittata

A little bit sweet thanks to fresh marjoram and a little bit salty courtesy of feta cheese, this frittata has a spectrum of flavors. Fill up your skillet with eggs, fresh zucchini, and chopped red onion to make a breakfast dish (or breakfast for dinner) that’s as pretty to look at as it is tasty to eat. Be sure to serve toasted ciabatta bread alongside.

7. Chicken Frittata with Cantaloupe-Tomato Salsa

Even if chicken doesn’t usually make its way onto your breakfast or brunch menu, this frittata will earn it a permanent spot on your plate. A healthy, hearty mix of shredded chicken, eggs, and kidney beans makes a protein-packed meal that will hold off hunger pangs all morning. To make this frittata even more interesting, we topped it with a juicy, tangy salsa made with cherry tomatoes, cantaloupe, and cilantro.

8. Crab and Asparagus Frittata

This elegant recipe is a brunch showstopper. Not only is it filled with a savory mix of crabmeat and red peppers, but it's topped off with long, slender asparagus spears. You can chop them up and add them to the mix if you want, but your frittata will turn out a little more Instagram-worthy if you leave the spears whole.
