When I wake up in the morning, I don’t crave sweet pancakes or pastries, and I definitely don’t crave scrambled eggs.

When I wake up, I want dinner. Pasta, steak, sautéed mushrooms; most days I eat leftovers for breakfast. The more savory the better.

My hubby is the breakfast cook in our family. He is an expert omelet maker and french toast flipper.  We have a standing joke that mommy can cook anything, except for breakfast.

So when I do amaze my family by pulling out pans first thing in the morning, I make a breakfast that is more like dinner.

Happy mommy = happy family, right?

Making Wild Mushroom and Goat Cheese Frittata Recipe

This Wild Mushroom and Goat Cheese Frittata is a dish that’s breakfast, lunch, dinner and brunch all rolled into one! It’s an elegant and filling meal for any occasion and is quick to prepare.

The word frittata comes from the Italian phrase “to fry” and is considered an open-face omelet of sorts. That means you can load your skillet with just about any filling, like a regular omelet. Actually the more ingredients you add to the frittata the better, because it thickens the frittata giving it better visual appeal.

How To: Wild Mushroom and Goat Cheese Frittata Recipe

So how does one make a perfect Wild Mushroom and Goat Cheese Frittata that effortlessly slips out of the skillet in one dazzling circle?

First make sure to add an ample amount of oil to the skillet and whirl it around until the sides are covered. Then heat that skillet until it is literally “smoking hot.”

How to Make Wild Mushroom and Goat Cheese Frittata Recipe

Have your egg and milk mixture ready. When the skillet is smoking, grab the handle and briskly move the skillet around in little circles. That way, when you pour the egg mixture in, it moves around the bottom and creates a skin. Continue pouring until all the eggs are in the skillet and the edges are already golden brown.


Add the filling to the egg mixture and top with cheese. Then pop the Wild Mushroom and Goat Cheese Frittata in the oven to finish cooking. Voila! A perfect Frittata.

Easy Wild Mushroom and Goat Cheese Frittata Recipe

In this Wild Mushroom and Goat Cheese Frittata, I added a mix of earthy crimini and oyster mushrooms, zucchini, shallots and rich creamy goat cheese.

These rustic, yet elegant, flavors take this frittata to a new realm of goodness. Of course, you do need to precook the mushrooms and zucchini to render out the extra liquid. Yet the few extra minutes deepen the mushroominess and give the frittata a flavor that is worth every second of your time.

  • 8 large eggs
  • ½ cup whole milk
  • 3 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 4 ounces sliced wild mushrooms, sliced (crimini, oyster, shitake…)
  • 1 large shallot, quartered and sliced
  • 1 small clove garlic, minced
  • 6-8 drops of truffle oil, optional
  • ¾ cup chopped zucchini
  • 3 ounces soft goat cheese
  • ¼ cup chopped green onions
  • Salt and Pepper
  • Oil


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Preheat a skillet to medium-high. Add 1 tablespoon oil to the hot skillet, then add shallot. Sauté for 2 minutes. Then add the garlic and toss.
  2. Add the sliced mushrooms. Carefully add the truffle oil, if desired. Sauté the mushrooms for 5-10 minutes, until deep brown, to render out the moisture. Finally, add the zucchini to the skillet and sauté another 2-3 minutes. *Truffle oil is potent; use it sparingly.
  3. Transfer the veggies to a plate and wipe the skillet with a paper towel. Put the skillet back over high heat with 2 tablespoons oil. Mix eggs and milk with ½ teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon fresh pepper. Whisk until frothy.
  4. Briskly swirl the skillet around as you pour the egg mixture in. This creates a crust on the outer edge. Then add the mushroom and zucchini mixture back to the skillet and crumble the goat cheese over the top.
  5. Remove from heat and place in the oven for 15-20 minutes until cooked through. Slide out of pan onto a cutting board and cut into wedges.

    Does goat milk have to be used in this recipe? Can a heavy cream or other milk be used?

    Fine Cooking did a Frittata 101 last year … listed a dozen options for each category, such as meats, cheeses, herbs, veggies, etc, and how much of each to throw in to keep it balanced. As a result, you got thousands of permutations from one recipe. Total dude way of cooking!

    I can’t look at a picture of mushrooms without hearing Julia Child lecture me to not crowd them on the pan. Was that in Julie and Julia?

    That frittata looks amazing…I love this brilliant lunch/dinner dish…the pictures are amazing, especially love the idea of using a whole lot of assorted mushrooms..love their earthiness.

    For what it’s worth, lots of recipes go with oven roasting the veggies instead of sautéing, to keep the water content down. But I personally prefer sautéing to keep everything on the soft side.

    Fine Cooking had a great Frittata 101 last year. Was more of a flow-chart than a recipe, resulting in about a billion combos.

    • Sommerposted May 26, 2011 at 2:01 pm Reply

      Hey Steve, I think the Italians had a handle on a wide array of frittatas long before Fine Cooking. ;)

  31. Julie M.posted May 25, 2011 at 8:03 am Reply

    Yum! I love a good frittata. This looks really good; especially considering you added in mushrooms and goat cheese. Two of my favorite foods!

    I make a frittata about once every couple of weeks… when we’re in dire need of using up our CSA produce. Thank you for the helpful tips!
