Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • 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.

  • 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.

It was easy enough and looked pretty, but... somehow apples and eggs just don't mix that well for me.

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!
