Versatile Egg Frittata

Share:

As a busy mom of an active toddler, I am always looking for quick and easy recipes to feed my family. What I love about this egg frittata recipe is that it uses simple ingredients, most of which you will already have on hand, and it can be prepared for breakfast, lunch, or dinner! Pair this frittata with a salad, some crusty French bread and fruit for a delicious meal your whole family will love!

A frittata is an Italian egg dish similar to an omelet. It is traditionally started on the stove-top and then finished in the oven. My recipe saves time by skipping the stovetop and using a baking dish in place of a skillet. Cooked vegetables, meats and cheeses are added to flavor the dish. Cut time by using leftover cooked vegetables and precooked or leftover meats. I chose mushrooms, spinach, and feta cheese to flavor my frittata. Get creative and come up with unique pairings to create a delicious frittata you can call your own!

Additional Mix in Options:

Fresh herbs
Diced ham
Shredded cheddar, mozzarella, or gouda
Sausage
Leftover baked potato (cubed)
Sun dried tomatoes
Onions
Bell pepper
Asparagus
Crumbled bacon
Broccoli
