  1. Step 1

    Gather the ingredients. Preheat the oven to 375ºF.
  2. Step 2

    Whisk the eggs and heavy cream in a large mixing bowl until well combined. If using, stir in the cheese.
  3. Step 3

    Heat the olive oil in an oven-safe 12-inch skillet over medium heat. Add the onions and cook, stirring occasionally, until fragrant and slightly caramelized to a pale gold color and glossy sheen, about 10 minutes.
  4. Step 4

    Add the sliced or chopped vegetables and cook until they are and any water they release has evaporate, about 5 minutes.
  5. Step 5

    Add the leafy greens and stir until wilted and bright green. If the greens release any water, continue to cook until it's evaporated, or you could drain the excess liquid.
  6. Step 6

    Remove the pan from the heat, mix in the cooked meats or fish (if using) and the chopped herbs. Season generously with salt and pepper. Taste and adjust seasoning.
  7. Step 7

    Pour the egg mixture over the cooked ingredients and transfer the skillet to the oven. Bake until the eggs are just set and the frittata slightly puffs up, 30-40 minutes. When you gently shake the pan the eggs should slightly shift back and forth.
  8. Step 8

    Remove the pan from the oven and let it rest for 10 minutes.
  9. Step 9

    Use a rubber spatula to free the frittata from the pan and invert it onto a plate ( here's how to flip a frittata ). Slice into wedges and serve.
