Egg frittatas will forever be one of my favourite meals to pack in plenty of fiber-rich veggies and protein. They’re so easy and versatile, plus you can enjoy them for any meal of the day!

This tuna frittata recipe is inspired by the flavours of a classic tuna melt, mixing in cheddar cheese, green onions, and dijon mustard.

Canned tuna, eggs, and cheddar are all excellent sources of quality protein. As a dietitian, I’m happy to share that protein-rich meals like this help to keep you full, satisfied, and energized for longer.

You can enjoy this tuna broccoli frittata on its own, or I’ve shared some serving ideas for you below. It’s also great for meal prep – enjoy it for breakfast the next day or as a healthy packed lunch idea!

Recipe Modifications & Ingredient Swaps

  1. Frittatas are a great way to get in lots of veggies! Feel free to try this one with other veggies, in place of or in addition to the broccoli. Ones like chopped carrots, cherry tomatoes, or zucchini would work great!
  2. If you’re vegan or dairy-free, you can try making this with a dairy-free cheddar alternative. Otherwise, I love using nutritional yeast for that cheesy taste also.
  3. Instead of canned tuna, you could try making this with canned salmon if that’s what you have on hand!

What To Serve With Tuna Frittata

I love eating this recipe on its own, or by serving it with a simple side salad! Something like a spring mix or baby arugula with a basic dressing always hits the spot.

If you want something even more filling, I’d recommend serving this with some sort of starch to complement the protein/fat/veggie content of this meal. Some ideas:

  • crispy, toasted baguette, sourdough, or whole wheat toast
  • roasted potatoes (linked my go-to recipe here!)
  • crackers or crisp bread
  • a whole grain, like quinoa, millet, or farro

Meal Prep Notes: Storage & Reheating

Leftovers of this tuna frittata recipe will keep for about 3 days in an airtight container in the fridge. It’s great as a healthy lunch or breakfast option the next day!

You can easily reheat it in the microwave. If you find that it’s gotten a little dry, feel free to stir in an extra drizzle of olive oil.

Canned Tuna Nutrition Benefits

One of my favourite easy protein sources is canned tuna. It’s so convenient to keep in the pantry to throw into meals like this!

Tuna is an awesome source of:

  • complete protein, with a standard 3 oz (85 gram) serving of tuna provides about 22 grams
  • omega-3 fatty acids
  • micronutrients like:
    • selenium
    • vitamin D
    • iron

TIP: Choosing canned LIGHT tuna (or “skipjack”) also ensures a lower mercury content than albacore (or “white” tuna).

Egg Nutrition Benefits

Eggs are an excellent source of complete, quality protein – 2 large eggs provide 13 grams!

Protein is essential for building lean muscle (hello post workout meal). It also helps to slow digestion, keeping you feeling full, satisfied, and energized for longer. All things that help you get through your busy day!

Eggs are also rich in various micronutrients, like:

  • vitamin A
  • vitamin D
  • vitamin E
  • vitamin B12
  • folate
  • iron
  • selenium
  • choline
