This Hamburger Onion Mushroom Frittata Recipe makes such a satisfying and tasty meal. It’s an excellent low carb choice for breakfast, lunch or dinner that can be made in under 30 minutes.

Over the holidays we were blessed with another iron skillet, one from my grandmother that my mother was passing along to me. The best kind of gift ever! It’s a square-ish skillet about 9-inches across. We’ve used it a bit. We can never seem to store our iron skillets and pans for any length of time before they are called upon again so usually you’ll find them stove top. A couple of weeks ago, Randy found the perfect dish for the new-to-us square skillet: a Hamburger Onion Mushroom Frittata Recipe (or omelet, if you fold it over). Oh my.

We’ve been trying to cut back on carbs. It’s hard, man. When trying to eat low carb or gluten free, the frittata or omelet is your tasty friend. And they don’t get much better than this combo, I assure you. A hearty breakfast, lunch or dinner, full of flavor, short on carbs, that can be made in about 20 minutes? Yep, it doesn’t get much better than that.

I don’t know if this recipe is truly classified as an omelet or a frittata. Honestly, I really don’t care. It could be considered a mix of both and depending on your preparation and/or serving presentation, it could go either way. Randy prepares this like a frittata, but serves it as an omelet, folding it over as he removes it from the pan. Maybe a Fromelet? Or Omelittata? Call it whatever you like. I call it good.
