Treat your friends and family to this quick and easy Mushroom and Goat Cheese Frittata for breakfast, brunch or “brinner”! 

This savory Mushroom and Goat Cheese Frittata recipe is one of the tastiest ways to serve eggs to a group of people. 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”!

Tip: Feeding a bunch of hungry carnivores? Cook some sausage in the pan before sautéing the mushrooms. Eggs are the perfect base to customize a meal to many different tastes. Have fun with it!
