Quick Frittata with Tomatoes and Cheese

Martina Slajerova8 comments

Frittata is a tasty and convenient summer dish. It takes just a few minutes to prepare and can be served either hot or cold. It's also a great way to use leftover vegetables, cheese, sausages or bacon. It makes 2 servings but you can always double or triple the batch and store it in the fridge for up to 5 days. This recipe is made with feta cheese, fresh herbs and tomatoes. What are your favourite frittata toppings? :-)

Ingredients (makes 2 servings):

  • 6 large eggs, free-range or organic
  • ½ medium white onion (55 g / 1.9 oz)
  • ⅔ cup soft cheese like feta, crumbled (100 g / 3.5 oz)
  • ⅔ cup cherry tomatoes, halved (100 g / 3.5 oz)
  • 1 tbsp ghee (you can make your own)
  • 2 tbsp freshly chopped herbs such as chives or basil
  • salt to taste (I used pink Himalayan)
  • freshly ground black pepper

Notes: When looking for ingredients, try to get them in their most natural form (organic, without unnecessary additives).


  1. Preheat the oven (or ideally broiler if you have it) to 200 C / 400 F. Peel and slice the onion. Place on a hot pan greased with ghee and cook until lightly browned.
  2. Crack the eggs into a bowl and season with salt and pepper. Add finely chopped herbs (I used chives) and whisk well.
  3. When the onion is browned, pour in the eggs and cook until you see the edges turning opaque.
  4. Top with the crumbled cheese and halved cherry tomatoes. Place under the broiler and cook for 5-7 minutes or until the top is cooked. Remove from the oven and set aside to cool down. Serve immediately or store in the fridge for up to 5 days.

Just had this for late breakfast, absolutely delicious!


Thank you Natasha! Smile


I subbed goat cheese and used chives. Used 8 eggs and it made 4 nice servings. This was fantastic! I wish I could post a photo!


Thank you Pamela! I'll have a look and see how we can implement photo sharing Smile


I would try this recipe using eggs whites
and adding only 2 whole eggs. Maybe some
low-fat cheese yum! Smile


I'm not sure why go for low-fat cheese, you may want to check this out Smile ketodietapp.com/.../Practical-Guide-to-Keto-Paleo-Diet-for-Health-and-Long-Term-Weight-Loss


Hi Martina, do you think cream cheese will work too? Thanks!
