What is a frittata?

Similar to an omelette or quiche, a traditional Italian frittata is made with eggs. A typical Spanish frittata or omelette, for example, would incorporate slices of potatoes into the batter before cooking, while a vegetable frittata may contain any combination of vegetables and cheeses such as peppers, spinach, goat's cheese and so on.

How to make a frittata?

Typically, the vegetables are cooked first until they reach their desired consistency. Any additional ingredients, such as cheese and other seasonings, may be added before whisking in the eggs. The frittata is then cooked in a pan in the grill or oven until the top is browned while the inside retains its soft texture.
