4 servingservings


  • 1 lb 450 g mushrooms
  • 4 oz. 110 g butter
  • 6 6 scallionscallions
  • 1 tbsp 1 tbsp fresh parsley
  • 1 tsp 1 tsp salt
  • ½ tsp ½ tsp ground black pepper
  • 10 10 eggeggs
  • 8 oz. 225 g shredded cheese
  • 1 cup 225 ml mayonnaise
  • 4 oz. 110 g leafy greens
  • 4 tbsp 4 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tbsp 1 tbsp white wine vinegar
  • ½ tsp ½ tsp salt
  • ¼ tsp ¼ tsp ground black pepper


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.


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.

    I got a 1/2 thyroid gland, and on no medecin and I've always been told to stay away from dairy but on the woe it is encouraged, am I right or wrong?
    Kind regards

    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
  17. diane
    This was delicious
  18. Angela
    I am sorry but I am just starting here, but does it tell me the serving size? I mean can I eat the whole thing and it will only be 6 grams of carbs? What size dish should I use for this recipe. Any guidance is very appreciated :)
  19. Wendelin
    I used sour cream instead of mayonnaise. Does anyone know the total carbs per serving?
  20. Xyriss
    You can change serving size at top

    This is delicious as I am beginning my Keto diet along with IF. Many questions abound and as always it’s tiresome trying to dissect the overabundance of information from what is accurate or not.
    Anyway I know ultimately it’s whatever works best for me individually. I’m confused on why the “serving” aren’t specified in the size.
    Out of all the Keto “experts” I’ve viewed or read not ONE seems to agree or specify just how much in one meal should be eaten! It’s always what and when never how much!

    What size pan is this designed for?

    What size pan is this designed for?

    If you make the default 4 servings, an 8x8 pan or smaller would be a good option.

  24. Venencia Masekesa
    The recip6can out very well. I think Mayonnaise made the dish too rich to finish a serving. Next time will try Sour cream as others suggested above
  25. Marcy
    This was so tasty. I used a blend of Italian cheeses. I wasn't paying attention to the serving size and used a 9x13 pan and got 8 slices out of it. I used mayo as the recipe called, and I put a dollop of sour cream on top of my slice. It was yummy.
