3 tbsp. butter, divided

1 medium sweet onion, sliced in thin rounds

1 1/2 cups shiitake mushrooms, roughly chopped

12 large eggs

5 oz. creme fraiche

3/4 cup shredded Havarti cheese

salt, to taste

pepper, to taste

fresh parsley


  • Preheat oven to 350˚F.

  • In a 10-inch cast-iron skillet, heat 1 tablespoon butter over medium heat. Add onion. Cook, stirring often, until softened, about 5 minutes.

  • Add mushrooms and cook, stirring often, until all liquid has evaporated and onions have turned golden brown, about 10 minutes.

  • In a large bowl, whisk eggs and creme fraiche together. Mix in Havarti cheese, salt and pepper.

  • Increase heat to medium and add 2 remaining tablespoons of butter to the skillet, making sure the edges are nicely coated with the butter. Pour the egg mixture over the onions and mushrooms. Cook without stirring for 5 minutes.

  • Transfer skillet to oven. Bake frittata until golden brown and center is set, 25 to 30 minutes.

  • After removing from the oven, allow to cool and serve at room temperature. Garnish with fresh parsley.
