Swiss Chard & Onion Frittata

Frittatas are a great way to slip vegetables into a delicious breakfast. Unlike an omelet, a frittata has all the fix-ins mixed in with the eggs, instead of folded in like an omelet. Also, frittatas are great to eat at room temperature, which makes them perfect for brunch with the girls.

Recipe yields 6 servings

2 tbsp unsalted butter
1 medium yellow onion
1 large bunch Swiss chard
8 large eggs
1/2 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
Salt & ground black pepper, to taste

Preheat the oven to 400F degrees. Slice the onions.

Roughly chop the Swiss chard. Rinse it off and dry it.

To a large skillet, melt your butter and add your sliced onions. Cook on medium-low heat so the onions caramelize and really get a nice flavor without burning.

Add the Swiss chard on top of the onions and stir until they wilt down to about half the original size.

In a mixing bowl, combine your eggs, cheese and some salt and pepper. Whisk it all together.

Pour the egg mixture right over your vegetables. Cook for 5-6 minuntes on medium heat until the edges have set but the top is still a bit runny.

Place the pan right into the oven (make sure your using an oven safe pan!) and cook for an additional 5 minutes to set the top. You will see it really puffs up nice when you pull it from the oven.

Slice the fritatta and serve with some toasty bread. A great way to start the morning with some healthy greens. Enjoy!
