Tips For The Best Easy Frittata Recipe

  • Always preheat the oven before baking.
  • A cast-iron skillet is perfect for baking a frittata.
  • Cook the frittata in the oven just until the center is no longer jiggly and the edges are golden brown.
  • To prepare in advance, this baked method is best. You can whisk the eggs, and cheese together in advance. Cover and refrigerate the mixture until you’re ready to bake (it should keep well for up to two days).

What to Serve with Frittata

Not only is this an easy frittata recipe, but the flavors work beautifully with a brunch cocktail and a side salad. Here are some suggestions:

Frittata Vs Omelet

Frittata, which translates to “fried” in Italian, is an egg-based classic brunch dish. Unlike omelets, frittata fillings are mixed in with the eggs in the pan rather than folded in the center.

While omelets are typically made to serve just one, the great thing about this baked frittata is it can serve many, and can also be eaten hot or at room temperature. Large frittatas are cut in slices and served.

  1. Would you be able to suggest an alternative for the flour? I would like to make it for a group, but one has celiac.
    Thank you!

  2. can you reduce the serving? like, use a little less egg? or put them in the fridge? because I think I can’t finish a frittata that size by myself :/

  3. this was wonderful. My mother-in-law even really enjoyed it. It has a nice fluffiness to it, lightness, and just enough flavor/seasoning. The base of the recipe could probably be interchanged with other flavors such as bacon, mushrooms, spinach, etc.

  4. I’ve made this several times and it’s always a hit! I plan to make this for Easter brunch this Sunday. Thanks for the recipe! 🙂 As always keep up all your hardwork and thank you for always inspiring me! xo

    • Oh my goodness!! Kim you’re such a doll! Thank you SO much for the sweetest comment and support! You’re amazing!!!

  5. Drink creation and fritatta look so delicious.The plating so beautiful and inviting.Another creation/post well done.I think I will try it all and with the same guest.
