What Is A Frittata?
People also call frittatas crustless quiche. It’s basically an Italian baked egg dish. There are lots of different ways to make it. My way uses veggies including zucchini.
How To Make Low Carb Zucchini Frittata
This recipe is packed with whole foods that will fuel your body and keep you full until your next meal. In fact, it’s so easy to make that you’ll want to whip this up for breakfast during the week too!
I used simple ingredients that are found right in your refrigerator. Here’s what I used, including other substitutions you can make.
Zucchini – I diced my zucchini. If you don’t have time, you can buy frozen diced zucchini too. You can also substitute yellow squash for it.
Butter – Real butter is much better for your body than margarine, but margarine can work in a pinch.
Onion – I diced up white onion. A purple onion will have a stronger flavor. You can also save time and buy diced onion in the freezer section.
Eggs – The size of the eggs doesn’t matter, just use whatever eggs you have in your refrigerator.
Milk – If you are lactose intolerant, you can use any non-dairy milk that you have instead.
Ham – Dice up any ham that you have in your fridge. You can use leftover holiday ham, country ham, or even deli meat.
Cheddar Cheese – Substitute with pepper jack cheese if you want to add a little bite to your frittata.
How To Store Low Carb Zucchini Frittata
This is a fantastic recipe for meal prep because you can store it in both the refrigerator and freezer. It’s easy to reheat it in the oven when you need it.
If you want to freeze it, cook it and let it cool completely. Then, store it in an airtight container and put it in the freezer. It will last about 2-3 months in the freezer.
Frittatas will last about a week in the refrigerator. They really taste the best fresh out of the oven.
