Prep time: 10 Minutes

Total time: 30 Minutes

Yield: Serves 4



  • 1 tablespoon plus 4 teaspoons olive oil
  • 1 medium onion finely chopped
  • 6 large eggs plus 2 large egg whites
  • Coarse salt
  • 1 cup shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese (4 ounces)
  • 2 garlic cloves thinly sliced
  • 1 can (14.5 ounces) whole tomatoes with juice
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh mint or parsley


  1. Preheat oven to 350° . In a 10-inch ovenproof nonstick skillet, heat 2 teaspoons oil over medium heat. Cook onion, stirring often, until soft, about 5 minutes. Cool completely.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk together eggs, egg whites, 3/4 teaspoon salt, and 2 tablespoons water. Stir in onion and 3/4 cup mozzarella.
  3. In skillet, heat 1 tablespoon oil over medium heat. Add egg mixture; reduce heat to low, and cook until beginning to set around the edges, about 3 minutes. Transfer to oven; bake until set, about 12 minutes.
  4. Meanwhile, heat remaining 2 teaspoons oil in a large skillet over low heat. Cook garlic until soft, 2 minutes. Add tomatoes, mint, and 1/4 teaspoon salt; simmer, breaking up tomatoes with a spoon, 5 minutes.
  5. Spoon sauce over frittata; sprinkle with remaining 1/4 cup cheese. Return to oven; cook until cheese melts, about 1 minute.
