Frittata Recipe

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

  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.

    Hey! How well does this keep? I just cook for 1 person so I’m wondering how long it would stay in the fridge and if it would still taste good and retain the texture. Thanks!

      Hi Amilia, I prefer this recipe eaten the day it’s cooked, however I’d say it could be in the refrigerator 2 days and be good still.
