This Garden Herb Frittata just screams sunshine to me!
It reminds me of a beautiful and bountiful summer garden full of the best produce and herbs one can put into their backyard or grab at their local farmers market.
You can also add meat if you’d like such as sausage, bacon, ground turkey, turkey bacon or ham.
The options are endless and that’s what makes a frittata so fun and simply delicious!
What I love about a frittata is how versatile it can be.
You can add any vegetables, cheese, herbs to the egg mixture and create a unique dish each and every time.
I started this dish with Minerva Dairy Garlic Herb Butter.
Minerva butter is slow churned and 85% butterfat butter which is results in a creamier, richer, and more flavorful butter. It also brings the garlic to this dish which pairs beautifully with the vegetables and herbs.
Minerva Dairy has been making since 1894, so when it comes to better butter, there’s no butter better than Minerva.

Step by step instructions

- Add cooled vegetables to egg mixture and fold in spinach and cheeses.

Recipe variations and tips
- This frittata would be delicious with fontina cheese, goat cheese or swiss cheese.
- Switch up the herbs and use rosemary, chives and/or thyme.
- Make it a spicy Mexican frittata and add chorizo, diced jalapenos and cilantro. Top with pico de gallo or salsa, sour cream and guacamole. I’m totally doing this next!
- Can this be made ahead?
- Yes, you can fully bake this frittata the night before and slice when ready to serve and reheat in the microwave.
- Can I make this frittata on the stove top?
- Absolutely! What’s so great about a frittata is that it’s cooked slowly, at low heat, so you can easily cook this on the stovetop.
We like to serve this frittata with a side of sweet potato tots, fruit and/or a small side salad for a light brunch.
