What Is A Frittata
A frittata sits somewhere between a quiche and an omelet. It doesn’t have a crust like a quiche, but it’s not folded like an omelet. The texture is a cross between the rich, creamy quiche and the airy, omelet. Most frittatas are delicious at just about any temperature, from fresh-out-of-the-oven hot, to room temperature or even cold. For lunch or dinner, you complete the meal with a side of lightly dressed greens; for breakfast, add fruit or a slice of bacon.
How To Make The Perfect Frittata
- Use the right number of eggs: If you underfill or overfill your skillet, the texture of the frittata may be compromised. Thin frittatas easily overcook; thick ones may cook too long on the outer edges before the inside is set. That leaves you with an eggy, spongy dish.
- Beat eggs until just blended: Overbeating the eggs invites too much air in to the egg mixture. As the frittata bakes, the eggs will expand and puff up. That can leave them with a spongy texture that’s dry and unappealing. You want to combine the eggs well, but stop once everything is fully incorporated.
- Bake only until set: Be watchful of a cooking quiche. You don’t want it to overcook, or you’ll ruin the texture you were seeking.
Cheddar Potato Bacon Frittata
- 8 large eggs
- 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
- 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
- 2 tablespoons diced green bell pepper
- 1 cup diced roasted potatoes

- Whisk eggs, salt and pepper in large mixing bowl. Set aside.
- Place green peppers and roasted potatoes into hot skillet. Cook and stir for 5 minutes. Add eggs to skillet. Let cook for 2 minutes then with a rubber spatula push sides of eggs to center to let eggs cook slightly. Let cook for another 5 minutes then top with tomatoes, bacon and cheese.
