  • 1 lb 450 g mushrooms
  • 3 oz. 90 g butter
  • 6 6 scallionscallions
  • 1 tablespoon 1 tablespoon fresh parsley
  • 1 teaspoon 1 teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon ½ teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 10 10 eggeggs

  • ¼ teaspoon ¼ teaspoon ground black pepper

Instructions

Instructions are for 4 servings. Please modify as needed.

  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F (175°C). First, prepare the vinaigrette and set aside.
  2. Slice the mushrooms anyway you like, small or big—whatever your preference.
  3. Sauté the mushrooms on medium high with most of the butter until golden. Lower the heat. Save some of the butter for greasing the baking dish.
  4. Chop the scallions and mix with the fried mushrooms. Add salt and pepper to taste, and mix in the parsley.
  5. Mix eggs, mayonnaise and cheese in a separate bowl. Salt and pepper to taste.
  6. Add the mushrooms and scallions and pour everything into a well-greased baking dish. Bake for 30–40 minutes or until the frittata turns golden and the eggs are cooked.
  7. Let cool for 5 minutes and serve with leafy greens and the vinaigrette.

Tip!

Be sure to choose your cheese carefully! Select a cheese that has superior melting quality like cheddar, fontina or gruyere!

    Sorry if I'm being dim, but I've never come across dl measurements before, e.g. 2 2/5 dl mayonnaise in the above recipe - what does it mean and how do you convert it to grams or ml?

    Hi Zoe,

    1 dl = 100ml, so 2 2/5 dl = 240ml.

    Sorry about the confusion!

    This is being actively developed right now with a number of exciting things coming soon for recipes. But unfortunately these changes might also result in less than optimal measurement choices while we tune it!

    Thanks for the clarification, Johan. It's a bit fiddly but the menus are worth it!

    This is soooooo yummy but my friend went to make it and only wanted for 1 person and it says 2 1/2 eggs ... how do you do you do half an egg lol

    This was OK but it was very bland to us. I'd say use Gruyere cheese could improve this dish immensely. I also think basil or some other stronger herb would add flavor. Additionally bacon too could be added for more flavor punch. And Sour Cream tastes better in egg dishes than mayonnaise.

    It calculates to 735 calories per serving, not 2865

    Had a busy day and had run out of mayo, no time to make any. I had about 3/4 cup of sour cream (to substitute for 1 cup mayo) and it was delicious. My kids loved this, even the one who isn't a fan of mushrooms. So very creamy and cheesy, a lovely consistency. I used mostly cheddar, but didn't have quite enough of that either, so I threw in a few ounces of an Italian mix (mozz, asiago, parm, etc) and I thought the flavor was quite nice. Huge hit with the whole family, so it will definitely go into our regular rotation.

    This was way more than 4 servings because I put it in a cake pan. Very good but I would def add more ingredients for texture and flavor next time and maybe just make 1/2 if this. 1/2 of this fed me about 6 times

    This was delicious
