What is a Frittata?

A frittata is an egg based dish that is similar to an omelette and quiche. They are basically a quiche without a crust. The word frittata is an Italian word that translates to “fried.”

Frittatas are typically made with a lot of eggs, a choice of meat or protein, and veggies. This version features ground beef, spinach, and onion.

Notes

  • Cook beef, bacon and onion until meat is cooked through and onion is soft.
  • Be sure to remove excess grease from pan.
  • Before adding eggs to skillet, heavily spray edges of skillet.  Eggs tend to stick to cast iron skillets.
  • Bake until the middle of the frittata is completely set and no longer jiggly.
  • Store leftovers in the fridge for up to 3 days.
  • Reheat in 300 degree Fahrenheit oven until warmed, about 5 to 6 minutes.
  • If you don’t have an oven safe skillet, prepare meat mixture.  Then pour this mixture into a pie plate and top with eggs before baking.
