When the fall season comes, pumpkin recipes are the best way to celebrate Autumn.

How To Make Pumpkin Frittata

Pumpkin is one of the low-carb vegetables that make frittata so delicious.

Ingredients

All you need to make this fall frittata are:

Ingredients for Roasted Pumpkin Frittata
  • Pumpkin – Peeled, deseeded, and cut into cubes. You can also use frozen pumpkin cubes; no need to thaw them.
  • Fresh Baby Spinach Leaves – Roughly chopped in pieces.
  • Dijon Mustard
  • Coconut Cream or heavy cream. I found coconut cream from a can marries very well with pumpkin flavors and it’s dairy-free.
  • Olive Oil, avocado oil, or any oil you love, like melted coconut oil.
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • Nutmeg, allspice, or cinnamon
  • Garlic Powder
  • Dried Rosemary, dried oregano, or thyme.
  • Feta Cheese – crumbled. I love goat cheese feta, but cow feta cheese or any other milk feta cheese tastes excellent with pumpkin.
  • Dijon Mustard
  • Shredded Cheddar or any hard-grated cheese, like Emmental, Gruyere, or Mozzarella.

Preparation

First, preheat the oven to 400°F (200°C). Spray a 12-inch pie plate or ceramic pie dish with cooking spray.

Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicone mat. Set aside.

Roast Pumpkin CubesRoast Pumpkin Cubes
  1. Seasoning Pumpkin

Next, prepare the pumpkin cubes for roasting. Place the peeled, deseeded pumpkin cubes in a large bowl. If you are using frozen pumpkin, that’s ok, don’t thaw before using.

Add oil, oregano, garlic powder, and nutmeg if used. Toss the pumpkin cubes with the oil mixture.

  1. Roasting Pumpkin

Spread the cubes on the prepared baking sheet and roast the pumpkin for 15 to 20 minutes, shaking halfway, until golden brown and tender.

Remove from the oven and cool down before adding to the eggs.

Egg mixture for frittata
  1. Whisking The Eggs

Crack the eight eggs in a large bowl.

  1. Making Egg Mixture

Whisk in the Dijon mustard, coconut cream, salt, pepper, dried rosemary, roughly chopped spinach, half the crumbled feta, and cheddar.

Baking Roasted Pumpkin Frittata
  1. Adding Veggies

Whisk in chopped spinach and cooled cubed pumpkin. Pour the pumpkin frittata mixture into the prepared pie plate. Add the remaining crumbled feta on top of the frittata.

  1. Baking The Frittata

Bake the frittata at 400°F (200°C) on the center rack of the oven for 15 to 20 minutes or until the top is golden brown and the egg mixture is set, firm, and not jiggly anymore.

Stovetop Option

If you don’t want to pre-roast your veggies, you can opt for the stovetop cooking option that allows you to use a single pan.

Warm some olive oil in a cast-iron skillet over medium-high heat.

Add the pumpkin cubes, garlic powder, and nutmeg and stir. Cook until the pumpkin is tender and roasted. It takes about 10 minutes.

Then, remove the skillet from the stove top, and pour the egg mixture on top with the spinach.

Then bake the frittata in the oven for 15 to 20 minutes at 400°F (200°C).

Frequently Asked questions

Here are my answers to your most common questions about this recipe.

What’s healthier between frittata and omelette?

Both are very healthy high-protein egg recipes using a similar amount of fat and eggs per serve.
However, frittata are loaded with vegetable and therefore, more nutrient dense. If you are after an healthy breakfast frittata is one of the best.

Why add milk to frittata?

You can add milk or cream to the egg mixture to make the frittata fluffier and less dry.

What is the purpose of a frittata?

A frittata is a healthy one-dish baked egg recipe perfect to serve lots of healthy protein and veggies packed breakfast in less than 30 minutes.

Is frittata supposed to be runny?

No, frittata is supposed to be firm as a quiche, sliceable and not soggy or moist.

Why is my frittata watery in the middle?

The middle of the frittata takes longer to bake. If you used a smaller pie plate or added ingredients that release water, like zucchini, mushrooms, or too much milk, it won’t set in the middle.
Keep baking with foil on top of the pie dish to help the center firm up.
