What is a Frittata?
A frittata is an egg based Italian breakfast dish similar to an omelette. Generally frittatas are filled with pre-cooked vegetables and they’re started cooking on the stovetop until eggs are set on the bottom then finished in the oven.
But I prefer to simplify it and this version is only cooked in the oven. Nothing complicated here. Everything is just mixed together and poured into a pie dish and baked just until set.
Technically this could probably be considered something between a crustless quiche and frittata because we skip the stove-top partial cooking of a traditional frittata but this doesn’t quite have the amount of milk or cream you’d find in a traditional quiche.
This frittata is perfectly hearty, flavorful way to start the day! It’s also great for entertaining too.
