  • 2 Tbsp extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1/2 small red or yellow onion thinly sliced
  • 1 jalepeno thinly sliced
  • 1 zucchini or yellow squash thinly sliced
  • 1 cup fresh corn kernels
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 8 large eggs
  • optional garnish: bacon crumbles and parmesan cheese


  • Heat your broiler. In a medium ovenproof (preferably cast-iron) skillet, heat the oil over medium heat and cook the onion and jalapeno. Stir while cooking until the onion and jalapeno are tender, about 5 minutes.
  • Next, add the zucchini and corn and cook them until they are tender, about 7 minutes more. Season with salt.
  • In a bowl, whisk the eggs with 1/2 teaspoon salt and pour into the skillet with the vegetables. Cook until the sides are just beginning to set, about 2 to 3 minutes.
  • Transfer the skillet to the oven and broil until just set in the middle and lightly golden and puffed on top, about 2 to 3 minutes.


-You can garnish the frittata with bacon crumbles and parmesan cheese before broiling, however this is completely optional.
