Add our Mushroom Medley Frittata to your Holiday morning breakfast menu!
This recipe is a one-dish wonder and perfect for a holiday breakfast or brunch! It’s prepared with minimal dishes so cleanup is nice and quick. My favorite kind of recipe! I like to use a variety of mushrooms to add different textures and flavors but if you only have access to one or two varieties, that will do! A soft goat cheese is a delicious and creamy addition in this recipe, however if that’s not your thing, go ahead and substitute your favorite cheese or omit the cheese altogether if you’re looking for a dairy-free/paleo option. For the herbs, rosemary is my most favorite herb to use in the Mushroom Medley Frittata as the flavor pairs nicely with the mushrooms, eggs and red onion. However, basil, oregano, sage, thyme and dill are also quite tasty! Since my husband is not a ‘veggie lover’ per-se, I also make a ham and cheese frittata to serve along side this one (recipe coming soon).
A Cast-iron skillet works wonders with this recipe.
I used my 10 1/2 inch Cast-Iron skillet for this recipe. All of the steps can be done in the skillet from the stove top and into the oven. However, if you don’t have a cast-iron, a 9 x 9-inch glass dish will also do the trick. Recipe instructions below. Grain-free Berry Crisp and Grain-free Turkey Pot Pie are two additional recipes that are made in a cast-iron skillet.
Season your pre-seasoned cast-iron skillet.
Even though your cast-iron skillet may have come pre-seasoned when purchased, it’s still beneficial to season it to prevent sticking and to maintain durability and longevity. Here’s the method I used from The Kitchn blog: How to Season a Cast Iron Skillet.

- Cook for 4-5 minutes on medium heat or until the edges begin to set.

- Remove from oven, let set for 5 minutes and enjoy.
^omit cheese for dairy-free.
**No cast iron or oven safe skillet? No sweat. Transfer to 9×9 dish after step 6 and bake in over at 375 degrees for 20-25 minutes or until center is set.
