What Exactly is a Fritatta?
A fritatta an egg-based Italian dish similar to an omelette, crustless quiche or scrambled eggs, with added ingredients like meats, cheese and vegetables. They're a great recipe to serve for brunch or special holiday breakfast.
Tips for Making a Delicious Fritatta
You need to use the right type of pan. I really believe you need a cast iron pan to make a good fritatta or at least some other type of skillet that can also be used in the oven.
You can use a stainless steel pan as well, but make sure you add extra oil or butter to the pan so the eggs don't stick.
- Make sure you cook the vegetables before adding the eggs.
- Once you add the eggs, make sure you only continue to cook the frittata on top of the stove for a minute or two. Quickly move the pan to the oven to finish the cooking process.
- Cook the frittata in the oven just until the center is no longer jiggly and the edges are golden-brown.

How do you know a Frittata is Cooked?
- When the frittata comes out of the oven it will be "puffy" if that's the right word.
- This really only lasts for a few minutes.
- It will deflate but that's normal.
