Total Time 35 mins
Servings 4 servings


  • 1 bunch Swiss chard 5 - 10 leaves
  • 1/2 onion
  • 2 teaspoons olive oil
  • 8 eggs
  • 1/2 cup grated cheddar cheese

Required equipment: oven-safe skillet


    • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees
    • Cut the chard leaves by running a knife down the center along each side of the stem. Put the leaves in one pile and the stems in another. Chop all the stems into 1/2 inch slices, keep separate. Roughly chop the leaves, keep them separate.
    • Dice the onion.
    • In a 10-inch oven-safe skillet, warm the olive oil on medium heat, then add the chopped stems and onion. Cook until the onions and stems are soft (about 5 minutes).
    • Meanwhile, crack the eggs into a medium sized bowl and beat them with a fork. Stir in the cheese.
    • To the skillet, add the chopped chard leaves. Cook until they are wilted, about 2 minutes.
    • Add the egg/cheese mixture to the pan. Move around the ingredients so that everything is evenly distributed.
    • Move the pan to the oven. Cook the frittata for 15 minutes. When the frittata is cooked through, remove it from the oven and allow it to cool for a few minutes before serving.
