Impressive, delicious and easy, what's not to love about Frittata?!
If you've never made a frittata (aka. Crustless Quiche) before, this recipe is the place to start. Incredibly forgiving, versatile and delicious- you can get as creative as you want or keep it simple.
Great as brunch or dinner (or really anytime in between!), this version includes Greek yogurt for an extra boost of protein and a frittata that turns out ultra thick and creamy.
- Eggs- You need 10 large eggs for this recipe which is approximately 2 cups. You could use carton eggs if you prefer.
- Greek Yogurt- This recipe should work with any type of yogurt.
- Sea Salt
- Black Pepper
- Hot Sauce
- Avocado Oil- Another neutral cooking oil will also work.
- Add Ins! You can mix in up to 3 cups of vegetables, 1 cup of cooked meat, 1 cup of cheese and 1 cup of fresh herbs. See below for lots of suggestions!
1. Prepare add ins (OPTIONAL). If using a cast iron skillet, you can prepare the add ins in the same pan as you will be cooking the frittata. If using meat, cook through and then remove to a plate to chop. Drain any grease and then add 1 tablespoon of avocado oil to sauté the vegetables. Once cooked through and softened, remove from heat and allow to cool slightly.
2. Mix. Combine the eggs, Greek yogurt and seasoning until just smooth. Fold in any add ins.
3. Bake. Add 1 tablespoon of avocado oil to your skillet (or alternate baking dish- see below for options). Pour the mixture in and bake at 375 F for 20-25 minutes. The centre should appear just barely set.
TIP: If using add ins, reserve a handful to sprinkle over top of the egg mixture before baking so that they don't all settle to the bottom. (This is purely for looks- it will still taste delicious if you just add them all at once!)
4. Slice and serve. Remove from the oven and allow to cool and set for 5 minutes. Slice into desired sizes and serve while hot!
Make Ahead: Prepare any add ins up to 1 day ahead and store in the refrigerator.
To Store: Cool and store leftovers in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 3 days or freeze for up to 3 months.
To Reheat: For best results, place the frittata in an oven safe dish with a lid and reheat in the oven at 350 F for about 10 minutes.
For a bit of a quicker method, you can reheat in a skillet. Melt butter and add the frittata. Cover and cook for 2 minutes and then flip. Cook covered for an additional 2-3 minutes until warmed through.
For the fastest method, you can reheat the frittata in the microwave for 45-90 seconds. It may release a lot of moisture (especially if it had been frozen), so you may want to place it on a paper towel to absorb some of it.
