  • 10 eggs⁣
  • 1 cup liquid egg whites⁣
  • 2 Tbsp milk⁣
  • 1 Tbsp dried basil or tarragon⁣
  • 1/4 cup fresh basil leaves diced ⁣
  • 3 Tbsp olive oil ⁣
  • 2 cups grape or cherry tomatoes halved (I love the multi-colored ones)⁣
  • 3-4 cloves of garlic diced ⁣
  • 3/4 tsp kosher salt⁣
  • Freshly ground pepper⁣
  • 4 oz fresh mozzarella cheese cut into 1/2” pieces ⁣


  • Preheat oven to 350°. ⁣
  • Whisk together eggs, egg whites, milk, dried basil or tarragon and fresh basil in a large bowl. Whisk in salt, pepper, and herbs. Set aside.⁣
  • Heat a 10-inch ovenproof skillet or cast-iron skillet on stovetop over medium high. Add oil, tomatoes, garlic, salt and pepper to skillet. Mix gently with spatula to combine. Cook 5-7 minutes. Turn heat off.⁣
  • Gently place mozzarella pieces on top of cooked tomatoes. Pour egg mixture over tomatoes and cheese. (For a fluffier frittata, whisk the eggs vigorously until slightly frothy right before pouring. The bubbles will keep the frittata light and airy as it cooks.)⁣
  • Transfer frittata to preheated oven and bake until eggs have set, about 20-25 minutes. Serve with fruit or toast and enjoy!
