... Mushroom and Fontina Frittata

Back to Recipes

Our family always enjoyed frittatas for dinner especially when zucchini were in season. I'd add a few zucchini to the mix on this great recipe-or other vegetables you like-the more the merrier.

Serves 6


2 tablespoons olive oil, divided

2 medium leeks, whites and pale green parts only, chopped

8 ounces crimini (baby bella) mushrooms, thinly sliced

12 large eggs

1/2 cup crème fraîche or sour cream

2 tablespoons coarsely chopped flat-leaf parsley

3/4 cup shredded Fontina cheese, divided

Kosher salt, freshly ground pepper


Place a rack in upper third of oven; preheat to 350°. Heat 1 tablespoon oil in a 10-

inch nonstick ovenproof skillet over medium heat. Add leeks; cook, stirring often,

until softened, about 5 minutes. Add mushrooms and cook, stirring often, until

softened and all liquid has evaporated, 8-10 minutes.

Meanwhile, whisk eggs, crème fraîche, and parsley in a large bowl; mix in 1/2 cup

cheese. Season with salt and pepper.


Increase the heat to medium-high and add remaining 1 tablespoon oil to the skillet.

Pour the egg mixture over the mushrooms, shaking the pan to evenly distribute

mixture. Cook the frittata, without stirring, until its edges begin to set, about 5

minutes. Sprinkle remaining 1/4 cup cheese over eggs and transfer skillet to oven. Bake

frittata until golden brown and center is set, 25-30 minutes
