  • 2 cups grated zucchini

4. Whisk together the cream and eggs. Pour them over the vegetables and cheeses. Sprinkle the remaining Parmesan over the top and place in a 350 degree oven. Bake until golden and puffy, about 30-35 minutes.

  1. Gisele, this looks scrumptious…when you bake it does it just form a crust like looking edge, or do you have to do something to it to get it to form this way?

  2. Nope- I just bake it. It gets browns and puffy, when it’s out of the oven for a couple of minutes, it drops some, hence the ” crust” I guess. I make a lot of frittatas, very easy and tasty.

  3. I’ve never heard of Frittattas! It looks like a mix between a quiche and a pizza! I’m gonna try that as soon as I can and let you know how it turned out! Thanks for the recipe!

  4. It gets cleveland browns and swollen, when it’s out of the range for a few mins, it comes down some, hence the “crust” I think. I develop a lot of frittatas, very simple and delightful.
