Switch up brunch from an ordinary omelette and try this Mediterranean Frittata made with spinach, feta & tomatoes - perfectly seasoned and quickly prepared!
Mediterranean Frittata is a flavorful and fabulous brunch recipe that’s made with eggs and filled with Mediterranean flavor! It’s a great way to clean out the fridge by sautéing vegetables and baking them in the oven with eggs. I love making this for brunch to serve a crowd or even for meal prep for myself for the week.
Ingredients to make Mediterranean frittata
- Eggs: Use the freshest eggs you can, and if possible use organic. You can use only egg whites if you prefer.
- Greek yogurt: Greek yogurt adds a creaminess to each bite as well as a little extra protein.
- Seasonings: Salt, pepper, garlic. Feel free to add others.
- Vegetables: Onions, baby spinach. Again feel free to add others.
- Feta cheese: Feta cheese is Greek cheese made from sheep and goats milk. It’s slightly salty and adds a wonderful flavor.
- Sun-dried tomatoes: These tomatoes add a burst of flavor and acidity that cuts through the creamy frittata
How to make Mediterranean frittata
- Mix together the ingredients for the egg mixture.
- Saute the onions, garlic and spinach until soft.
- Pour the egg mix over the top and add half of the feta and sun-dried tomatoes.
- Bake in the preheated oven until cooked through.
- Sprinkle with the rest of the feta and the sun-dried tomatoes and sprinkle with parsley.
Frittatas translate to “fried” in Italian. Like an omelette, a frittata is an egg-based classic brunch dish. However, unlike an omelette, a frittata is cooked in a cast iron pan or oven-safe skillet after getting started on a stovetop, instead of just being cooked on a stovetop. Also, unlike omelets, frittata fillings are mixed in with the eggs in the pan instead of being folded in the center.
Tips for making a frittata
- Use an oven safe skillet for this recipe. The frittata is cooked on the stovetop and in the oven, so don’t use anything with plastic handles that can melt.
- Cook the vegetables well before adding the egg mixture. This helps to get rid of any excess liquid that can otherwise make your frittata soggy.
- Let the frittata stand for 5 minutes before slicing it so that it firms up.
- Don’t skip the Greek yogurt. It creates a fluffy and creamy texture. You can also use whole milk, cream or sour cream.

- 8 eggs
- ¼ cup full fat Greek yogurt
- ½ teaspoon salt
- ½ teaspoon black pepper
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 2-3 green onions chopped
- 1 cup packed baby spinach
- 1 garlic clove minced
- ½ cup feta cheese divided
- 4 tablespoons sundried tomatoes in oil divided
- ¼ cup chopped parsley
- Preheat the oven to 425°F.
- Whisk together the egg, yogurt, salt and pepper; set mixture aside.
- Heat olive oil in a large (10-inch) oven safe pan or cast iron pan. Add green onions and cook until softened, about 3-5 minutes. Add the spinach and garlic, and cook until the spinach starts to wilt, about 2-3 more minutes.
- Pour the egg mixture on top of the cooked vegetables. Add half the feta cheese and half the sundried tomatoes.
- Bake uncovered in the preheated oven until the center is set, and not jiggly, about 10-12 minutes. Add the remaining feta cheese and sundried tomatoes on top, and sprinkle with parsley. Serve immediately.
- Instead of Greek yogurt try ricotta or sour cream for a more rich texture. You can also use regular milk, or plant based milk.
- You can substitute the vegetables for any others.
- Feel free to replace the cheese with any other you’d like.
