Alfresco Friday – Zucchini and Feta Frittata

Zucchini Frittata

It is another glorious Alfresco Friday. By the magic of technology, even though I am off in Fiji enjoying a tropical paradise, I am able to give you an idea for your very own picnic by the beach.

I have prepared a Zucchini & Feta Frittata in individual serving sizes using the “cafe style muffin papers” which are available in the supermarket.  I chose to make a vegetarian picnic food because I have become aware that I haven’t been making very many dishes suitable for vego’s on my site, a fact I will be rectifying in future posts.

Now because I have also become aware that some of my more “snug” clothing is being less than friendly of late, I am also going to include the calorie count on some of my dishes.  Obviously, I am not going to do this for desserts etc, the fear factor is way too high!

So these little beauties are a delicious, cheesy, oily 155 calories. Or the same as eating a green apple.  As this is Alfresco Friday my frittata’s were served with a  green salad and coleslaw.

Zucchini & Feta Frittata

Ingredients:

1 ½ cups SR Flour

1 ½ cups grated cheese

5 Zucchini (grated)

2 onions (grated)

7 Eggs

200gm Danish feta (cubed)

50gm Sundried Tomato (chopped)

1 bunch coriander (chopped)

Method:

Preheat the oven to 160 degrees.  Prepare two muffin tins by lining with muffin papers.

grated zucchini

Drain the grated zucchini and onion thoroughly in a sieve, press the mixture to remove all moisture.

Making Frittata

Combine all the ingredients together in a large mixing bowl.

Frittata in muffin paper

Spoon mixture into the muffin trays.

Bake for 20-30 minutes, until the frittata is golden and a skewer comes out clean.

Individual Zucchini Frittata

This recipe makes 24 individual frittatas. I usually make a huge batch and freeze half in zip lock bags for later use. You could always halve the recipe if desired.

  3. Wonderful individual servings. They look delicious.

  4. Oh it’s hard after Christmas… seems like in the two months following it’s just holiday after holiday = lots of communal eating 🙂 These look so lovely and light !

  5. mmmm these look great for a picnic… shame I don’t have to go on one!

  6. I’d love to visit Fiji, its on my list of places to visit. This would be the first thing I’d grab if I saw this at a picnic!

  7. They do look lovely! On a tangent, from which supermarket did you acquire the paper liners please?

  8. I tried the recipe and found that there must be a typo concerning the oven temp. The lowest my oven would go is 170°F and baking them at that temp for one hour still didn’t cook them. Is there an error?

  9. Thanks for sharing this great post!
