Easy Salad-Topped Frittata

Frittatas are budget-friendly and easy to make. This one is packed with nourishing ingredients like eggs, veggies, and Greek yogurt. Topping it with salad is a tasty twist and a great way to get more veggies into your day.


1 tbsp (15 mL) butter
3 cups (750 mL) sliced mushrooms
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 small red pepper, chopped
8 eggs
1 cup (250 mL) plain Greek yogurt
½ tsp (2 mL) pepper
3 cups (750 mL) baby arugula
1 cup (250 mL) grape or cherry tomatoes, halved
⅓ cup (75 mL) crumbled cow’s milk feta cheese


Preheat oven to 350°F (180°C).

In a 12-inch (30 cm) ovenproof skillet, melt butter over medium-high heat Add mushrooms and cook for 2 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add garlic and red pepper and cook for 3 minutes, stirring halfway through, or when mushrooms are golden-brown. Remove and set aside about ⅓ cup (75 mL) of mushrooms.

Meanwhile, in a large bowl, whisk together eggs, yogurt and pepper until smooth.

Reduce heat to medium. Add arugula. Stir mixture until arugula is just wilted, about 1 minute. Pour egg mixture over top; stir gently to combine. Top with tomatoes, feta cheese and reserved mushrooms*. Cook, without stirring, for 2 minutes or until egg mixture starts to bubble.

Move pan to oven and bake for 5 minutes. Turn on broiler; broil until egg mixture is set and just golden, about 2 minutes. Remove pan from oven. Let stand for 5 minutes before adding your salad topper.

* Reserving mushrooms for the top of the frittata makes for a nice presentation.
