What is a Frittata?

A frittata is an egg dish that can be filled with any combination of meat, veggies, or cheese. It’s generally added to a hot skillet or cast iron pan on the stovetop and finished in the oven.

  • With minimal prep and cleanup, this dish is easy to make and uses just one skillet.
  • It’s budget-friendly! Clean out the fridge and use leftovers from potatoes or pasta to meat and veggies.
  • This frittata recipe reheats well, so make it on the weekend and reheat it for breakfast throughout the week.
  • Serve cold for a light lunch or warm alongside a salad and drinks for a delicious meal.

Both are made with the same basic ingredients. The difference between a frittata and a quiche is that a quiche usually has a crust and a higher ratio of dairy to eggs.

Frittata Ingredients

Frittatas are a great way to use up leftovers including potatoes or pasta.

  • Eggs – I use fresh large eggs in this recipe. You can replace eggs with an egg substitute as well.
  • Dairy – Mix it with full-fat dairy. You can replace the cream with sour cream or plain Greek yogurt.
  • Meat – Besides eggs, other proteins like diced ham, bacon bits, Italian sausage, and salmon can be used in a frittata. For a lighter dish, use fewer yolks and more whites.
  • Potatoes – I use frozen hashbrowns to keep it easy, but any variety of cooked potatoes or pasta can be used.
  • Add-Ins – Any veggie goes! Try chopped spinach, cherry tomatoes, broccoli, or red bell pepper.
  • Cheese – Cheddar cheese is my favorite but any cheese goes. Try feta cheese, brie, or pepper jack.

How to Make a Frittata

  1. Soften the veggies in an oven-safe pan until tender.
  2. Whisk eggs, cream, and seasonings in a bowl.
  3. Add the bacon and green onion to the pan and pour the egg custard mixture overtop.
  4. Top with cheese and bake (per recipe below) until the frittata is set. Broil a minute or two for a nice golden top.
