Basil, Caramelized Onion, & Goat Cheese Frittata


A baked omelette? A crustless quiche? Our Italian Basil, Caramelized Onion, & Goat Cheese Frittata is lightly creamy, fluffy and easy-to-make in under 25 minutes.

What is the difference between a frittata and a quiche?

Great question! The simple answer is: the crust!

A Quiche is like a pie with a more creamier base, usually thicker in depth, and takes a little more prepping in the kitchen. A frittata is typically a simple whisked egg mixture that is poured over sautéed veggies in a skillet to be baked for the half the time, resulting in a lighter breakfast (yet still satisfying).

Is frittata freezer-friendly?

Yes, you can freeze a cooked frittata! You can either store leftovers in the fridge for up to 4 days or freeze in an air-tight container after wrapping tightly in Saran Wrap to keep it fresh.

Similar to quiche, our cooked Italian Basil, Caramelized Onion, & Goat Cheese Frittata can be prepped ahead of time, making it perfect for Valentine's Day breakfast-in-bed, weekend brunch, and so on.

Now, it's time to grab our aprons and begin cooking deliciousness!

Basil, Caramelized Onion, & Goat Cheese Frittata



  • 1/2 Red Onion, (thinly sliced)
  • 6 large Eggs
  • 1/4 cup Milk of choice
  • 1/4 cup Goat Cheese, (or shredded mozzarella)
  • 2 Garlic Cloves, (minced)
  • 1/4 cup Fresh Basil, (chopped)
  • 1/4 tsp. Sea Salt
  • 2 tsp. Extra Virgin Olive Oil


  1. Preheat oven to 400F.
  2. Whisk together the eggs, milk, minced garlic, salt, and basil until well-combined. Set aside.
  3. Heat up the extra virgin olive oil in a 10 or 12" cast-iron skillet over medium heat. Add in the thinly sliced red onions to cook until translucent, about 4-5 minutes. Turn off the heat.
  4. Evenly distribute the goat cheese in bite-size pieces on the skillet. Pour over the egg mixture, then shake the skillet slightly to distribute.
  5. Bake for 15 to 20 minutes, or until edges are set. Season to taste with salt and black pepper. Enjoy!
