  • 1 5 oz can albacore tuna packed in water drained & flaked
  • 3-4 green onions thinly sliced
  • 1 1/2 tsp minced garlic
  • 8 eggs beaten


  • Melt the butter in a large non-stick skillet over medium low heat. Once the butter's melted, add the onions and garlic. Saute until they're softened, roughly 3-5 minutes.
  • Add the tuna, stirring to evenly mix.
  • Turn the heat up slightly, and pour the eggs out evenly over the tuna mixture.
  • Allow the frittata to cook for 2-3 minutes until the bottom is set, but the top's still runny.
  • Reduce the heat slightly, and cover the skillet with a lid. Let the frittata continue to cook until the top's almost set completely.
  • Run a spatula along the edges to release the frittata from the side of the skillet, and let it sit just until the top's set.
  • Slice like a pizza, and serve warm.
