Since I have a set of round white dishes, I chose some modern, but classic square dishes in white. They’re extremely durable, beautiful porcelain dishes and a 16-piece set is only $39! I wanted to try my new dishes out and since my in-laws are in town, I thought I’d make them the best and easy frittata recipe for brunch. I’ve been making this frittata for almost 8 years now and it’s the best one I’ve ever tasted! I usually serve it for special occasions and it’s become a Christmas morning tradition too. The frittata is very cheesy (that’s a good thing!), moist and simply  delicious. I served it with heirloom tomatoes and some delicious and spicy Bloody Marys. Everyone loved it and I can’t stress enough how easy it is to make! Recipe below…


Best Frittata Recipe Ever (Serves 10)
10 large organic eggs
1 (16 ounce) container of small curd cottage cheese
2 (8 ounce) packages shredded Monterey Jack cheese
1 (4.5 ounce) can chopped green chiles
1 (4 ounce) jar diced pimentos, drained
1/4 cup chopped green onions
1/4 cup (1/2 stick) melted butter
1/4 cup flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/8 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon ground pepper corn or black pepper


Preheat oven to 350.
In a large bowl, whisk eggs until combined. Stir in cottage cheese, shredded cheese, chiles, pimentos and butter.
In a separate small bowl combine flour and remaining dry ingredients. Add to egg mixture and stir until combined. Pour mixture into a large cast iron skillet dish, and bake for 40 to 45 minutes.

I used this recipe for Bloody Marys, but doubled up on the hot sauce and added green hot sauce and two tablespoons green olive juice too.

Thanks Better Homes and Gardens for the beautiful dishes! Get more entertaining ideas by liking them on Facebook!

    can you reduce the serving? like, use a little less egg? or put them in the fridge? because I think I can’t finish a frittata that size by myself :/

  • Nikki says:

    this was wonderful. My mother-in-law even really enjoyed it. It has a nice fluffiness to it, lightness, and just enough flavor/seasoning. The base of the recipe could probably be interchanged with other flavors such as bacon, mushrooms, spinach, etc.
