Swiss chard is a lovely (and tasty!) dark, leafy green whose stem comes in a variety of colors (red, yellow, green).  Incorporating it in a frittata is a great way of including vegetables in your meal.

  • ½ bunch Swiss chard
  • 8 large eggs
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 large onion, chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • Kosher salt, to taste
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 tomato, chopped
  • ½ cup grated Parmesan cheese (optional)


  1. Prepare Swiss chard: Clean and check leaves thoroughly. Cut off long stems from Swiss chard leaves.  Chop stems and set aside.  Chop leaves into 1-2 inch strips and set aside.
  2. Beat eggs in a large bowl until well blended.  Season to taste with salt and pepper; set aside.
  3. Preheat broiler.
  4. Heat oil in a large frying pan (oven-safe) over medium high heat until oil is hot.  Add reserved stems, onion, and garlic.  Season with salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste.  Sauté for about 5-7 minutes until onions are translucent and soft.
  5. Add beaten eggs. Use spatula to stir and gently form large curds. Allow eggs to set for about 2 minutes.  Add reserved chard leaves and chopped tomato; distribute evenly amongst eggs.  Sprinkle evenly with parmesan cheese.
  6. Transfer pan to broiler.  Finish cooking under broiler for another 3-5 minutes, or until eggs are cooked and cheese is nicely browned.
  7. Remove from broiler. Cut into wedges and serve warm.
