Tips For The Best Frittata
- 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).

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.
