Baked Frittata with Pesto, Tomatoes & Goat Cheese is an easy breakfast bake that is low-carb, vegetarian and gluten-free!
On a surprisingly hot March day, my husband’s side of the family was hanging out by their pool. Texas weather can be absolutely crazy!
We all started to get rather hungry, so Momma Loree (one of the former L.B.’s), brought out a tray of crackers, roasted tomatoes and goat cheese. The combination was incredible!!
For weeks Cohl and I have been devouring this tasty snack.
Breakfast is always one of my larger meals of the day. I find that a good combination of protein and healthy fats will keep me full until lunchtime.
This baked frittata with pesto does just that!! You will get a lot of protein from the eggs, healthy fats from the goat cheese and pesto, as well as tons of antioxidants from the roasted tomatoes and arugula.
And the best part… this baked frittata with pesto tastes great re-heated in the oven or the microwave. So once it is baked, you can have your healthy breakfast ready in no time!!
A Few Ingredient Tips for this Baked Frittata with Pesto:
Where Are the Roasted Tomatoes Found in the Grocery Store?
In this baked frittata with pesto recipe, you will see that roasted tomatoes in oil are called for. If you have a larger grocery store (Whole Foods, Central Market, or Kroger) you can normally find them in the olive bar section.
If you only have a smaller grocery store, I would look for them in the canned vegetable aisle next to the sun-dried tomatoes and roasted bell peppers in a jar.
Also, you can always order some from Thrive Market.
For the Pesto:
Fresh pesto is definitely the way to go. Our grocery store makes fresh pesto in-house that is amazing.
For the Goat Cheese:
After tasting many different kinds of goat cheese, buying an entire fresh log of goat cheese is hands down the best. Our current favorite is Montchevre Goat Cheese. It comes in an 8-oz log. After you finish making this baked frittata with pesto you can use up the rest with a few roasted tomatoes and crackers 🙂
