Grilled Vegetable Frittata

Active time 15 mins
Total time 25 mins

Serves 4 (serving size: 2 wedges)

Frittatas are a great canvases for leftover ingredients, especially grilled summer vegetables. We add them to the egg mixture just before it sets so the veggies don’t release too much moisture into the frittata. The potato also helps to absorb moisture and makes the dish feel hearty. You can swap the oregano for fresh basil or use a cheese with a bit more sharpness like Asiago or pecorino Romano. Serve for brunch, lunch, or dinner with goat cheese-topped crostini and a simple green salad.


  • 1 1/2 tablespoons olive oil, divided
  • 2 medium Yukon Gold potatoes, peeled and diced (about 10 oz.)
  • 2 tablespoons 2% reduced-fat milk
  • 2 teaspoons chopped fresh oregano
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper
  • 1 ounce Parmesan cheese, finely grated (about 1/3 cup)
  • 6 large eggs
  • 2 large egg whites
  • 2 cups grilled vegetable mixture (from Grilled Caponata Panini), coarsely chopped
