Spring onion frittata recipe

Spring onion Frittata is that recipe I go back again and again. It is easy to make in the morning, and I can adjust the ingredients based on whatever I have in the fridge.
Featured in the movie “Morning Glory” with Harrison Ford, it instantly became one of my to-go recipes when I don’t feel like cooking in the morning. Just use what you have in the fridge. This spring onion frittata recipe is so simple to make, and it’s so delicious you would not believe it. I learned to make a frittata from a movie, I actually made it a couple of times, and then I forgot about it. It was just not one of my favorite recipes for breakfast.


And one morning, I had to make breakfast for a few people, and I was just searching for a quick recipe, yummy and easy to make. I just could not see myself making 4-5 omelets and keep them warm long enough to make them all. So I remembered my frittata recipe, and it was a hit!
Everybody loved it, my husband loved it, and since then, I still make it from time to time when I want to make a quick and delicious recipe for the morning.
When making a frittata, you can use any toppings, just like you would use in an omelet. The difference is that while the omelet is fried in a pan, the frittata is baked.
For easy cleaning, I always use a baking sheet when making a frittata. This way, the egg does not stick to the pan, and the cleaning is so much easier.

Spring Onion Frittata

Yield: 2
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 25 minutes
Total Time: 35 minutes

The most straightforward breakfast idea is a frittata. What I most love about this recipe is that it really is a time savior.


  • 4 Eggs
  • 1 Spring Onion
  • 2 tbsp Shredded Cheese
  • 4 Cherry Tomatoes for garnish


    1. Turn the oven to 200 degrees. Prepare a small tray and line it with parchment (this will make the cleaning process super easy and you will not have to use any grease for the recipe, so it's better for your health, right?).
    2. While the oven is heating, beat the eggs until fluffy (make them have a little foam, the foamier the fluffier the frittata). The secret to a fluffy omelet or frittata is a well beaten egg.
    3. Add to the egg mix chopped spring union and the shredded cheese.

      Pour the mixture in the tray and bake it for 25-30 minutes, until all the egg is cooked.
    4. When serving your frittata, just remove the baking sheet with the frittata from the tray, place on a cutting board and portion the frittata as you wish.
    5. Sprinkle some salt and pepper, then garnish with halved cherry tomatoes and/or fresh parsley and serve.
    6. Enjoy!
