Vegetarian Frittata

Smoky paprika adds bold flavor to the goat cheese rounds topping this vegetarian frittata


  • 2 T. smoky paprika
  • 4 oz. log of goat cheese
  • 6 eggs + 3 egg whites
  • 1/3 cup minced fresh herbs (chive, basil, thyme, parsley)
  • 1/2 t. salt
  • 1 red pepper
  • 1 T. and 1 t. olive oil
  • 1 leek, cleaned and diced
  • 2 cups baby spinach, chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced


  1. Preheat oven to 375°F.
  2. Pour smoky paprika onto a piece of parchment paper. Lightly roll the goat cheese in the spice to coat the outside to a vibrant red. Using a piece of unwaxed dental floss, gently slice the goat cheese into 6-8 even rounds. Set aside.
  3. In a small bowl, whisk the eggs and egg whites until mixed through. Whisk in fresh herbs and salt. Set aside.
  4. Meanwhile, roast the red pepper over an open flame on the stove OR under the broiler in the oven for 4-5 minutes. Roast until the skin is blackened all around. Put pepper in a glass bowl, cover with a plate and set aside to steam for 15-20 minutes. Once pepper has steamed, wipe off charred skin with a paper towel. Core and cut into even slices.
  5. Heat a 10 in. Swiss Diamond skillet over medium heat. Add 1 T. olive oil and diced leek. Sauté until translucent, about 4-5 minutes.
  6. Add the garlic and spinach and sauté 1 more minute. Remove to a bowl.
  7. Brush the pan with 1 t. olive oil – be sure to coat all the way around the bottom and sides. Turn burner to medium low. Pour the whisked eggs into the pan. Evenly add the vegetables to the egg mixture and lightly press into the eggs with a spatula. Lay the spice-rubbed goat cheese rounds evenly across the egg mixture.
  8. Cook until outside of the frittata is set and middle is a bit wobbly.
  9. Place the pan in the oven and bake for 10 minutes at 375°F or until middle is puffy and golden brown. Swiss Diamond cookware is oven-safe to 500 degrees F – even the thermoplastic handles. If you are not using Swiss Diamond cookware, please follow manufacturer’s recommendations for oven safety.
  10. Slide onto a cutting board, cut into 6 wedges and enjoy!
