Chard and Cheese Frittata
with lemony garlic broccoli
Caramelized onions and cheese add body and richness to this delicious frittata - one of our favorite egg dishes for dinner! Pair it with a simple side of broccoli for a perfectly balanced dinner. This recipe was first included a meal plan in April 2016.
- Garlic - 2 cloves, sliced
- Broccoli - 1 1/4 lbs, chopped
- Lemon juice - 1 1/2 Tbsp
- Butter - 1 Tbsp
- Onions, medium - 1, sliced
- Chard, any type - 1 bunch, leaves torn, stems chopped
- Eggs - 8
- Milk - 1/4 cup
- Salt - 1/2 tsp
- Black pepper - 1/2 tsp
- Cheese, any pre-shredded blend - 8 oz
- Butter - 1 1/2 Tbsp
- Heat oven to 425F / 218C.
- Heat a 8” / 20cm skillet over medium-high heat. Add butter and then onions and chopped chard stems to melted butter with some salt. Saute until onions are slightly golden and caramelized, 6 to 8 minutes.
- Fold in chard leaves and saute until wilted, 1 to 2 minutes.
- Pour in egg mixture and stir until everything is evenly distributed. Transfer to the oven and bake for 18 to 25 minutes, until a knife comes out cleanly.
- While frittata is cooking, place garlic and broccoli into a microwave-safe dish. Cover with a damp paper towel and cook for 2-1/2 to 4 minutes, until broccoli gets to desired tenderness. Toss with lemon juice and butter. Season with some salt and pepper.
- Enjoy frittata with broccoli on the side.
Easy to make, but took a lot longer to cook than I expected. This could be because 1 of chicken breasts was double the size of the other ... Also, forgot shredded cheese and used 1 cheese stick instead. Definitely need more cheese next time!0 Helpful
So quick and easy and tastes fantastic0 Helpful
We loved this dish! I stuffed the chicken with mozzarella and a little bit of smoked gruyere which was really delicious. Neither of us cares for steamed broccoli, so I used the roasted broccoli recipe from the Swedish Meatballs (10/16/17). Instead of white wine for the pan sauce, I used 1 part chicken stock and 1 part white vinegar. I also added a side of couscous.0 Helpful
I can’t believe this wasn’t already on our favorites list. SO good all around!!0 Helpful
Yummy. I like broccoli, but I'm always looking for ways to dress it up. Garlic and lemon sure does that.0 Helpful
Although I thought the artichoke was a wonderful sub for the cheese in the Original recipe, my SO says it drops to a 3 star rating.0 Helpful
