How To Make A Frittata


Here you will find a basic recipe for a frittata. Frittatas make for an easy breakfast or brunch item and can be combined with just about any vegetable in your refrigerator with it without cheese. Have fun experimenting to find your favorite mixture!



  • 3 Tablespoons of olive oil
  • Assortment of vegetables
  • 8 eggs
  • 1/2 cup of milk
  • 1/4 teaspoon of black pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon of cayenne pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon of salt
  • 1/2 cup of cheese if adding

How to make:

Preheat the broiler to high.

In an oven-safe skillet, I prefer a 10-inch cast iron skillet, cook meat and remove to drain. Add vegetables and cook until tender. If not adding meat, heat olive oil and cook vegetables until tender.

In a bowl, whisk together eggs, milk, and seasonings. Pour the mixture into the skillet with meat and vegetables. Once the edge of the frittata is half-way set, the middle is still runny, sprinkle cheese if adding, and move to under the broiler. Cook for another 2-3 minutes.

Cool and slice.
