Baked Frittata with Cherry Tomatoes and Arugula
Baked frittata with cherry tomatoes and arugula – ready in 45 minutes and incredibly delicious!
Filled with cherry tomato and arugula, this baked frittata is so easy to make, and packed with flavor.
Frittatas are one of my go-to quick and easy meals. They are perfect for breakfast, lunch, brunch, dinner, picnics, or parties, and can be served hot, warm, or at room temperature.
They’re also a great way to use up whatever vegetables or leftovers you have in the fridge. Replace the arugula with baby spinach, Swiss chard, kale or beet greens; use thyme, dill, mint or basil instead of parsley; add zucchini, asparagus, artichokes, mushrooms, or bell peppers; substitute mozzarella cheese with blue, goat, feta, cheddar, provolone, ricotta, or parmesan. The possibilities are endless!
If you don’t have a well-seasoned cast iron pan, any other pan or baking dish is ok as long as it’s oven safe, non-stick and without plastic handles of course.
Serve the baked frittata with a slice of crusty bread, a simple green salad for a tasty, no-fuss, low-carb meal.
Leftovers can be stored in the fridge for 2 to 3 days in an airtight container.

- In a large bowl, stir together the eggs, cherry tomatoes, arugula, mozzarella, parsley, salt, and pepper.
- Once the pan is hot, add the olive oil and sauté the onion until soft and translucent.
- Remove from heat, pour the egg mixture over the sautéed onion and stir to ensure the egg mixture is evenly distributed.
