Frittata di Zucchine al Forno – Baked Zucchini Frittata

Baked Zucchini Frittata, Frittata forno

I have been pretty much MIA all summer long.  Time just flies so fast.  But while there is still a little of summer left, there is just enough time to make this easy zucchini frittata.  To me, this is the perfect summer recipe because it is fast, easy, satisfying and you can eat it cold as well.  But again you have to hurry up, soon zucchini season will be over.  Enjoy!


3 zucchini

2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil 

salt and pepper to taste

8 eggs

2/3 cups whole milk

3/4 cups grated parmesan cheese

Salt and pepper to taste

olive oil to grease the pan


1.  Preheat the oven to 350°F.

2.  Wash the zucchini throughly and cut into cubes.

3.  Pour three tablespoons of extra virgin olive in a pan and cook the zucchini with a little salt and pepper for 10-15 minutes over medium to low heat.

4.  Meanwhile, in a medium bowl, whisk together the eggs, milk, salt and pepper.  Add parmesan cheese and the cooked zucchini.

5.  Pour the frittata mixture into a well-greased pan and bake for 30-35 minutes.  Cover with foil if you see the frittata getting too brown.

6.  Remove from oven and let cool completely.  Slice, serve and enjoy.

  1. Zucchini. … Yum yum my favourite vegetables!
    I hope you don’t have anything against me having it reposted on my blog? If you do let me know … I will remove it.
    Thank you for your thoughts.

    • Hi Alison!!!! Wow….what a fun idea! Never thought of that! I will try it next time I make this for sure.

  2. I really like the taste of fried zucchini. We have a Persian style of this frittata too, and I know how well it goes bound by eggs. So beautifully made and a lovely dish.🙂

    • Thank you Fae! Yes….zucchini and eggs make great friends! 🙂 Thanks again for your kind comment.

    • Grazie Cristina….si…lo so…ho visto tutte le tue foto su instagram….ha, ha, ha….la vita! It is funny sometimes…..buona domenica cara!

  3. I will have to try it in the oven like yours. I think Cyn does that too. I always do mine in the skillet and flip it with a plate, which I was pretty excited to master – haha. It looks so pretty but when I put it on the plate when it’s finished, it always deflates – very frustrating!

    • Ok….so used to do them in the skillet, then broil the top, but then my oven-safe skillet got old and I never got a new one. I CANNOT do the whole thing on a skillet without the help of the oven. Anyway….this way is super easy, but mine deflate too. 😦
