Treat your friends and family to this quick and easy Mushroom and Goat Cheese Frittata for breakfast, brunch or “brinner”!
What do you call this dish: frittata or crustless quiche? Whatever name you choose, this savory Mushroom and Goat Cheese Frittata is one of the best ways to serve eggs to a group of people. It’s a one-pan meal that takes minutes to prep and toss in the oven to bake. A large cast iron skillet is ideal for this dish. It goes from stovetop to oven effortlessly. I love the bright flavors that fresh herbs bring to the dish, mainly because they are a wonderful complement to the rich, creamy goat cheese, but you can certainly use dried herbs if that’s what you have on hand. The same goes for the mushrooms. I used a combination of Oyster, Shiitake and Cremini mushrooms, but pick your favorites to customize the dish. Serve this Mushroom and Goat Cheese Frittata with some make-ahead Lemon Thyme Breakfast Cake and a Fruit Salad with Lime-Mint Dressing, and you have a killer breakfast, brunch or “brinner”!
