Fontina Kale Mini-Frittata


Recipe courtesy of Sumptuous Spoonfuls

Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 15 minutes
Total Time: 25 minutes
Yield: 1 serving
Serving Size: 1 mini frittata


  • 2 eggs
  • 1 Tablespoon Sundried Tomato Pesto
  • Salt & pepper
  • 1 cup kale leaves, roughly chopped
  • 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • 1/2 – 2/3 cup shredded Fontina cheese (or other good melt-y cheese)
  • For the top: Snipped green onion


  1. In a small bowl, whisk the eggs, sprinkle with salt & fresh-ground pepper, then whisk in the sundried tomato pesto until well mixed.
  2. Put the kale leaves in a small mixing bowl, drizzle olive oil over, then “massage” the oil into the leaves.This softens the kale. Put the kale in a frying pan or small saucepan with a teaspoon or two of water, cover and cook over medium heat for about 5 minutes, stirring occasionally, or until wilted.
  3. Rub a bit of olive oil over the bottom and sides of a mini-skillet pan, add the kale, then pour the eggs over top. Sprinkle with the cheese. Cover and heat over medium-low heat for about 10 minutes or until the cheese is melted and the eggs are set. Sprinkle with snipped green onion and enjoy!


  • This recipe is about enough to feed one person, but you can easily double or triple it and cook it in a bigger skillet to feed a family. I had it for 2nd breakfast, but it makes a lovely dinner too.
