Ingredients and Variations

EGGS AND CHEESE – These are the basics for any frittata. Choose large eggs and bright and tangy cheddar cheese. For an extra fluffy frittata with a protein boost add two egg whites. Monterey Jack, Swiss, Colby, Feta, and Mexican Cotija are all strong-flavored cheeses that melt well in frittatas.

VEGETABLES – Zucchini, onions, and red bell peppers take the stage here, but any combination of low carb veggies like tomatoes, spinach, mushrooms, thinly sliced Brussels sprouts, or asparagus adds to the flavor and visual appeal of a frittata. A small amount of hash brown potatoes can be added, but remember they are not keto!

MEAT – Bacon is low carb? You bet! Cooked bacon pieces add extra protein and that classic flavor to any frittata, but small dices of ham or even leftover cooked chicken, turkey, or smoked or even air-fried salmon will elevate a frittata into a main dish!

How To Make Zucchini Frittata

Frittata might sound fancy, but the steps are as easy as can be!

  1. Cook bacon and sauté veggies in bacon fat.
  2. Add egg mixture and top with cheddar and bacon.
  3. Bake until set. Rest before serving.

PRO TIP: Place frittata under the broiler for an extra crispy top!
