Apple-and-Cheddar Frittata Recipe

As easy as one and two, this apple-and-cheddar frittata recipe is quick and simple. Pair this frittata with some cider-glazed sausage and a green salad, and you've got an easy midday menu that's sure to be a hit.

  • prep: 10 mins
    total time: 35 mins
  • servings: 4




  • 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. Step 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. Step 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.

    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.
