Frittatas are the kind of food that everyone should know how to make before they even think about leaving their parents’ house. They are relatively easy to make, customizable because you can add toppings as you like without ruining the flavor, and super nutritious and healthy.
Basically, frittatas are an Italian dish that’s a cross between omelettes and quiche. It has the best of both, but it is its own thing entirely. It’s also a vegetarian’s best friend, since you can add just about any vegetable to this recipe!
Let’s make Frittata!
- 8 eggs
- ¼ cup heavy cream
- ⅔ cup cheese
- 2 tbsp olive oil
- 2 cups cooked vegetables
- Salt and pepper
Veggie ideas for your frittata: spinach, onion, asparagus, tomatoes, bell peppers, broccoli, mushrooms, kale.
How to make:
- Preheat oven to 350ºF.
- In a large mixing bowl, add the eggs, heavy cream, salt and pepper. Whisk enough to combine; don’t overdo it, or it’ll turn out dense.
- Heat a cast iron with olive oil over medium heat.
- Sauteé the vegetables of your preference for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally
- Pour in the eggs mixture with the vegetables and add cheese. Mix gently.
- Transfer the cast iron into the oven. Bake for 20 minutes, or until set. Don’t let it brown.
- Remove from the oven and let cool before serving.
Now you can dig in, experience the whole force of frittatas and forget all about omelettes and all other silly egg-based recipes: frittatas are here to stay.
