There are some times when I’m just inspired to create a new recipe and this simple Greek frittata was definitely inspired. Today when I was thinking about what I wanted to fix for lunch, nothing sounded good at all. I absolutely hate it when that happens. So as I stood there, in front of my refrigerator wanting something to catch my attention, I noticed the eggs. I haven’t made a frittata in a long time. I like frittatas because they are less labor-intensive than an omelet.
But a part of me also wanted something new and different. I had thought about creating a Greek frittata a few weeks ago but just didn’t have the time to make that happen. Well, I had all of the ingredients that I needed. So it was the perfect opportunity to create a Greek frittata.
I use a cast iron skillet for my frittata recipes. They easily go from stovetop to oven without any issues. I use a Lodge 8-inch skillet and really love it!
I’ve made salt optional with this dish. There is plenty of saltiness in the olives and feta cheese that it really doesn’t need it. But if you prefer a saltier frittata, then feel free to add it. You can also substitute black olives for the Kalamata olives. It works well with either.
You can also use your favorite non-daily milk in place of cow’s milk. I try to give as many options as possible since food sensitivities are also common for sensitives to experience. This recipe is gluten-free, grain-free, and low-carb.
