Rye berries add texture and heft to this one-pan egg dish studded with garlicky sauteed chard and fresh herbs. Ricotta is dolloped on top just before the frittata goes into the oven, providing the perfect creamy contrast.

Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat broiler with rack in top third. Heat 1 tablespoon oil and garlic in a 10-inch broilerproof nonstick skillet over medium. When fragrant, add chard stems and leaves. Season with salt and cook, stirring, until just tender, 4 minutes. Transfer to a bowl.

  • In a large bowl, whisk together eggs, milk, 1 teaspoon salt, and 1/8 teaspoon pepper until well combined. Stir in rye berries, chard leaves and stems, and all but 1 tablespoon combined chopped herbs and scallions.

  • Return skillet to medium-high heat; add remaining 1 tablespoon oil. Add egg mixture and cook, stirring with a spatula to create large curds, until eggs are just beginning to set, about 3 minutes. Remove from heat, dollop with ricotta, and transfer to oven. Broil until eggs are puffed, just set, and beginning to brown in spots, 2 to 3 minutes. Let stand 10 minutes. Garnish with remaining chopped herbs and scallions, and serve warm or room temperature.
