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.

I should also mention that this courgette and sun dried frittata makes for a fantastic brunch, which you could make this weekend?

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!

  1. This really makes the perfect meal for any time of the day, but I am going to love to make this for my dad for breakfast when I go to see him this weekend for Fathers day. It looks really amazing and I love the addition of the sundried tomatoes. Thanks for the great idea and recipe Neil.
    Have an absolutely wonderful weekend 😃

      Hi Ashika, thanks!

      That’s such an nice thing to do for your Dad for Fathers Day. I too cook for my Dad, but my parents don’t live near so I love to cook for them when they come and stay with us.

      Have a great weekend too. 🙂

  2. Oh man, I totally love a good frittata. Laura isn’t a huge egg gal, so I don’t make quiches and frittatas that often…but when I do, I get to dig in mostly by myself! Plus, this one is great for summer with the tomatoes and zucchini. We should have both in the garden sometime soon! (Glad you didn’t include fresh peas…the chipmunks destroyed my pea plants this year.) Also, I totally do the same thing with deconstructing recipes at restaurants…and Laura puts up with me, too. Heck, sometimes I can get her t help out. Thanks so much for a great recipe, Neil, and I hope you and Lynne have a fun weekend. Tell her congrats for me!

      Thanks David, Lynne is thrilled about her new job. And I’m thrilled to help her celebrate with hopefully a free meal from her parents this weekend in Greenock! 😀

      I’m jealous that you have a garden where you have both tomatoes and zucchini growing. I’ve said to Lynne many times that if she lets me give up work I’ll happily tend to our garden and it wont be growing just weeds!!

      We must compare notes sometime in a restaurant! That would be hilarious with both Lynne and Laura there, trying to have a conversation. 😉

  3. CONGRATS to Lynne on her promotion, Neil! As for what meal to enjoy fritatta at – well, I gotta agree with you and say I’d welcome a slice at any time of the day! I especially love the courgette/zucchini and sundried tomato combination you have here! Delicious! Glad you got to catch breakfast at the hotel that second day so you could bring this to us – now I need to be more like you and pull out my phone as I try to deconstruct a dish next time my taste buds are tickled instead of sitting there swooning!
    Hope y’all have a wonderful time with Lady Lynne’s parents and a happy weekend to you both!

    • neil@neilshealthymeals.com says:

      Thank you Shashi. Lynne will be thrilled when I gave her your congrats.

      I’m so glad that they had this Frittata at the hotel, I just could not get enough of it. I had to slow myself down and get the recipe into my phone instead of devouring the whole thing in one mouthful. After all it was the first meal of the day and I was hungry!!

      Actually saying that, I’m always hungry lol!! 🙂

  4. Yum! I would love to give this recipe a try! Delightful frittata, Neil!

      Thank you Agness.

      If you even find yourself over here in Scotland I’ll rustle one up for us all to share. If we CAN share it, or maybe I’ll need to make us one each? 😉

  5. Sun-Dried TOMATOES are so good! They lend such a nice flavor to literally EVERYTHING they are added to! They almost kind of make everything taste like pizza. Or perhaps that’s just me thinking so because I haven’t had pizza in like 2392849732 years! hahaha!

      It’s like the flavour of those sundried tomatoes is just BURSTING to come out isn’t it GiGi?

      As soon as you take them out of the jar and cook with them, they come alive.

      Sorry you can’t have pizza. But think of all the calories you’re saving! 🙂
