Caprese Frittata

  • 1 tablespoon butter or olive oil
  • 12 eggs
  • ½ cup of whole milk or cream
  • A handful of fresh basil leaves, divided
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon pepper
  • 2 medium sized tomatoes, sliced thinly, divided
  • 6 ounces fresh mozzarella cheese, sliced in rounds (if fresh mozzarella isn’t available, shredded will also work)


  1. Preheat the oven to 400° F and adjust an oven rack to the middle position.
  2. Place butter or olive oil in a 10.25 inch cast iron skilletover medium-low heat for 4 to 5 minutes. Tilt pan to coat sides with oil. While pan is heating, set aside half basil leaves and finely chop remaining half. In a large mixing bowl, whisk together eggs, milk or cream, salt, pepper and chopped basil until well blended.
  3. Pour half of the egg mixture into the skillet and cook 3 to 4 minutes, until bottom has just begun to set. Carefully place half of the sliced tomatoes into the eggs. Pour in the rest of the egg mixture and place remaining tomatoes on top (they may sink slightly). Cook another 4 to 5 minutes on the stovetop, then place in oven.
  4. Bake until the top is set and sides begin to pull away from the skillet, about 8 to 10 minutes. Remove skillet from oven, carefully place mozzarella slices on top, and let cool for 5 minutes as cheese melts. Use a spatula to remove frittata from skillet. Garnish with remaining basil and serve immediately.
