Hakuna Frittata


Amp-up your breakfast with this delicious Frittata recipe!

Don’t let the name Frittata fool you… you can absolutely turn those eggs into a delicious recipe with all the ingredients already in your pantry!

So what exactly is a Frittata and why isn’t it just considered an omelet?

 Well, with a Frittata, there’s actually not a lot of technique involved in cooking it. It’s an Italian style of cooked eggs, and there just so happens to be no flipping, scrambling, twirling, or tossing of your eggs….. that’s why a cast iron skillet is the PERFECT piece of cookware to make your Frittata in. It creates the perfect cook on ALL sides of your Frittata, and makes for a gorgeous yet rustic style of serving your eggs- perfect for a brunch get-together!


This particular recipe mimics a Philly Cheese Steak- think Denver Omelet… BUT BETTER!

Course Breakfast
Cuisine Italian
Servings 6 servings


  • Cast Iron Skillet
  • Grater


  • 4 Large Eggs
  • 6 oz Steak
  • 2 oz White Onion Diced
  • 2 oz Green Pepper Diced
  • 2 oz Fresh Mushroom Diced
  • 1 Tbsp Shredded Swiss
  • Smoked Provolone Shredded, use it to Top
  • 4 Tbsp Unsalted Butter
  • Salt and Pepper to taste
  • Steak Seasoning for unseasoned steak


  • Turn your oven broiler on high.
  • In a medium bowl, whisk together your eggs, Swiss cheese, salt and pepper and set aside.
  • In your large Cast Iron, cook off your steak and season if needed, set aside. The meat should be fatty enough, you shouldn't have to add oil or butter.
  • In your cast iron on medium heat, cook down your onions, peppers and mushrooms with 2 tablespoons of butter, until onions are translucent. Add in the steak and 2 more tablespoons of butter and cook for an additional 2 minutes.
  • At this point, spread your mixture out into the pan to evenly distribute, then add in your egg mixture to cover the veggies and meat completely. You may need to tip the pan or shake it back and forth to make sure the eggs get around all the veggies.
  • As your eggs begin to set (only a few minutes), using a grater, shred your smoked provolone (ours came in a block) over the top of the entire mixture and remove the cast iron from the stove top and place it in your preheated broiler for 2 minutes, or until Golden Brown Delicious.
  • Take your cast iron out of the broiler and remove the eggs (it should be cooked into one large, delicious circle) and place out onto your serving dish.
  • Slice using a pizza cutter and enjoy immediately!
