Apple-and-Cheddar Frittata

Source: Everyday Food, 2007


  • 8 large eggs plus 2 large egg whites
  • 4 ounces white cheddar cheese, coarsely grated (1 cup)
  • Coarse salt and ground pepper
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 2 Gala apples, peeled, cored, and sliced lengthwise into 1/8-inch-thick pieces


  1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees, with rack set in top third. In a medium bowl, whisk together eggs, egg whites, and half the cheese; season with salt and pepper. In a medium cast-iron or nonstick ovenproof skillet, heat butter over medium. Add egg mixture; while it cooks, 1 to 2 minutes until edge is set, arrange apples on top in a circular pattern, starting from the outside edge, and sprinkle with remaining cheese.

  2. Transfer skillet to oven. Bake until frittata is set in the center and cheese is browned, about 20 minutes. Using a rubber spatula, release frittata onto a cutting board; let rest 5 minutes. Cut into wedges, and serve.

    For those who found it bland, you can add spices... Rosemary, Thyme, Sage, Peppers, Chilis...

    I loved this recipe! I used Beecher's cheese (Jack) instead of cheddar, and added some red onion and bacon as suggested by previous reviewers. I also used some of the bacon grease and about half a tablespoon or less of the butter on the bottom of the skillet to add additional flavor. My family was quite impressed when I brought this frittata to the table. The circular design of the apples on top looks fancy!

    My kids (2 and 4) liked it. But my husband and I both thought it was bland. I even added bacon to the egg mix as others had suggested. Not something I will make again.

    Hmmmmm, actually, I have some leftover smoked ham in the fridge. Guess what we're having for dinner!!! Can't wait.

    This was so much better with sauteed bacon in the egg mix. Next time I have some leftover pancetta, I'll use that.

    This was ok but kind of bland. I agree with renorose, adding bacon would have made this so yummy.

    I've never tried fruit in a fritatta before - what a great idea! Apples and cheddar go so well together. Looking forward to trying this!

    This is such a good idea! Used applewood smoked cheddar and cooked, crumbled bacon - almost too yummy.
