Artichoke Rosemary Frittata (Video)
Artichoke Rosemary Frittata has artichokes, cheese, and a bit of rosemary, and although artichokes have some carbs they are full of fiber so this is very low in net carbs!

I’m back from a wonderful cruise to Alaska, and ready to get back to sharing recipes. When I looked at the photos of things I cooked before the trip, I thought maybe I’d have to give the Meatless Monday fans a raincheck this week, but then I remembered this delicious recipe for Low-Carb Artichoke-Rosemary Frittata that I made a couple of weeks ago to update the photos.
A frittata is an Italian style omelet which cooks on top of the stove without being turned and then gets browned under the broiler for a few minutes at the end, and even though years ago when I used to make this at Lake Powell one guy would call it egg mess, it tastes like something you’d order for brunch at the best hotel in town.
I found this recipe so many years ago, I honestly don’t remember where I originally saw it. I do know the original version added a cup of diced, cooked red potatoes, which were sauteed for a few minutes before you added the artichoke hearts. If you eat potatoes you can try it that way, but if you’re a low-carb eater, trust me, this will still be delicious without the potatoes.
How to Make Artichoke Rosemary Frittata:
(Scroll down for complete recipe with nutritional information.)
- You need a frying pan that can go under the broiler and has a lid to make this recipe.
- Slice the green onions (or dice some onion) and finely chop the fresh rosemary (or use crushed dried rosemary if you don’t have fresh rosemary.) This is a recipe where frozen rosemary would also work well.
- Heat the butter and olive oil; then saute the onion for a few minutes. Add the finely chopped rosemary and saute a minute or two, until you can smell the rosemary.
- While the onions and rosemary cook, drain the artichoke hearts and cut into bite-sized pieces. Add the artichoke hearts to the pan and cook about 3 minutes.
- Beat 8 eggs until they’re well combined.
- Measure about 1 1/2 cups Mozzarella (or use a mixture of cheeses such as Swiss, sharp white cheddar, or Provolone.)
- Pour the eggs over the artichoke hearts and sprinkle cheese over the top. Season to taste with salt and fresh-ground black pepper.
- Cover the pan and lower the heat. (If you don’t have a fancy frittata pan like this one, any type of lid will work just fine.) Preheat the broiler while the frittata is cooking.
- Cook the frittata about 15 minutes, or until the mixture seems set and slightly puffs up like this.
- Then put the frittata under the broiler for about 2 minutes, until the top is nicely browned. (Watch it carefully; it can go from browned to burned pretty quickly.)
- Here’s how my frittata looked when it came out from under the broiler.
- Serve hot and enjoy!
