Serve this versatile courgette and sundried tomato frittata for breakfast, lunch or dinner. It’s delicious, quick, healthy and easy to make. The perfect choice for when time is limited.
Aren’t Frittatas great? The flavours of this delicious courgette (zucchini for my American friends) and sundried tomato frittata just go so well together!
You know frittatas must be one of the easiest and fastest recipes to get on a plate using whatever veggies you might have leftover in your fridge or store cupboard.
Now folks, a question – are frittatas for breakfast, lunch or for dinner?
I don’t know; it’s a personal choice I suppose.
All I know is that I’d quite happily eat them for each and every meal!
Folks like my previous recipe, the black bean burgers one, this courgette and sundried tomato frittata is another recipe I’m recreating from our recent trip to Hawaii and San Francisco where we had these at the Hyatt in Oahu for breakfast.
Because of the Haleakala day trip we had planned, that meant leaving the hotel before breakfast was served, we missed getting to the self service breakfast buffet on our first full day in Oahu.
Had I known that I was missing out on a piece of this delicious frittata I might I requested that the hotel keep us some back, it’s seriously that good!
When I saw this on our second day at the hotel, I carved a piece and then spend the new 10 minutes trying to work out the combination of ingredients that were producing the delicious flavours in my mouth!
I must have appeared rude to people who may have looked over whilst I was eating this and frantically typing into my phone at the same time. I don’t think they would have understood that what I’m actually doing is typing in the name of the recipe and ingredients I think it’s made from so I can try it out at home. It drives Lady Lynne mad and I’m grateful she puts up with me!
It’s funny but frittatas are always one of our main camping recipes too. Easy to make on our camping stove!
We always like to see if we can get fresh baked rolls and then have a slice of frittata in two rolls each whenever we are away camping.
There’s always some kind of frittata recipe. It probably wouldn’t be a holiday for us if we didn’t have a frittata most mornings!
You don’t have to have a skillet to make this courgette and sundried tomato frittata, a deep frying pan will do.
It’s only recently that I got my skillet, before that I didn’t have a large pan that could go into the oven to bake it’s contents without the plastic handle melting!
So you can grill the frittata at the last stage of the recipe instead of popping it into the oven. Check out how to do that by following steps 7 and 8 in the kale and pepper frittata recipe.
It’s just that now I have a skillet I find it easier to pop the frittata into the oven and then I don’t have to check over it as much as I would if it was under the grill.

Talking of the weekend (see how I did that excellent link there 😉 ) we’re off to celebrate Lynne’s recent work promotion by going out for lunch with her parents. We celebrated it together last weekend by having some drinks at Oran Mor, always a favourite for us as it was where we got married 4 years ago and then we went for dinner at another favourite, The Bothy.
Whatever you are doing this weekend I hope you have fun!
Next week on Tuesday I’ve got a super easy oven baked aubergine recipe for you. Catch you then!
