Notes

  • Don't forget to season this recipe! Salt & pepper are critical to making this dish shine. Be sure to add fresh herbs to the top of the frittata as a garnish as well.
  • Play around with your vegetable and cheese combinations to find your favorite variation.
  • Be sure to pre cook your vegetables before adding them to the eggs. Raw vegetables will not be fully cooked by the time the eggs are done. You can also roast your vegetables before adding them to the egg mixture.
  • Don’t overcook your frittata! Keep an eye on this crustless quiche while it is in the oven. Bake until the eggs are puffed and opaque as this dish will continue cooking once pulled from the oven due to residual heat.
