Dishing Up the Dirt

Swiss Chard and Chanterelle Mushroom Frittata Cups


As our farm season winds down I find myself craving comforting foods that still highlight some of the seasons best produce. We still have an abundance of swiss chard at the farm and with our local hookup with chanterelle mushrooms I knew I needed to make a dish that highlighted both of these treasures.


Beautiful chard.


Locally harvested chanterelles.


I don’t know about you all but having a quick and easy snack that is full of protein and good for you ingredients is critical in our household. We are often in a rush during the day between farm chores and veggie drop-offs so snacks like these frittata cups are really nice to have on hand. These puppies are a cinch to whip up and taste amazing. They are dairy free to boot!

I am already planning on having some girlfriends over for brunch in a few weeks so we have an excuse to drink mimosas and eat these lovely frittata cups!

If you are a cheese lover I think these would taste awesome with a little gruyere. However, we loved them as is. Either way pour some coffee (or a mimosa) and dig in!

    This looks like a yummy recipe, but I don’t see where the Swiss Chard comes in. Would a leaf of Chard line the muffin cups, perhaps? Anyway, thanks for the great recipes! I’m a new reader of your blog and truly enjoying them.

    These look delicious! I think you forgot to mention the swiss chard in your recipe, though. 😉 I’m assuming you just chop it up and add it to the onions and mushrooms?
