Fabulous Frittata

"I love frittata. Its the epitomy of a quick, healthy meal. These can be eaten cold, hot, with salad, or not. You can really fool around with the ingredients and make it different every time."

Ready In:




  • Put the oven rack in the top 1/3 of the oven& preheat to 350 degrees.
  • Beat the eggs lightly, (don't be cruel), mix the cheese and herbs in, and set aside.
  • Spray a 8" non-stick, oven-proof frying pan with a little oil.
  • Heat the pan on med-high heat.
  • Add your vegetables to the pan.
  • Stir the egg, cheese& herb mixture one last time, and pour over the filling.
  • Stir lightly for about 30 seconds.
  • Turn heat down to med-low.
  • When the eggs begin to set on the bottom, use a spatula to loosen the edge of the frittata, and lift it slightly to let the unset eggs run underneath.
  • Continue to cook until the egg is not-quite set, about 4 minutes.
  • Put the pan in the oven, and cook another 4 minutes, until the top is set.
  • Remove the frittata, loosen the edges& slide onto a plate.

  1. I was looking for a simple, easily adaptable frittata recipe and this filled the bill very nicely. It's easy to tailor to personal tastes with various veggies and cheeses, and makes a quick but special Sunday breakfast. Thank you for posting, Moody!
  2. Lovely easy recipe. I used colored peppers, a Jalapeno pepper, onions and mushrooms. No cheese. It made atasty, not too heavy dinner


I live in Canada, and I work in the restaurant industry (not a chef!). Don't have a favorite cookbook, but I love these internet sites, (especially this one, where you can get the dietary info - that's cool). I'm pretty passionate about animals, and about my health, (regardless of what my beer and cigarette habit might say about me!). The majority of food I like to eat is vegetarian, if not, vegan. I am able to enjoy a good steak every now and again, however. As long as I don't have to cook it. (I hate cooking meat - makes such a mess...) I have recently had a month off - I took the time to backpack around Mexico by myself. Crazy? Nah. Well, maybe...
