Frittatas are a great breakfast when you want something simple and quick to make. While the baking takes 30 minutes, the assembly time is minimal.
The wonderful thing about Frittatas is that you can put just about anything in them. In fact, in certain regions of Italy, they even make their Frittatas with pasta!
All you have to do really is go to your fridge, see what leftovers you have or what needs to be eaten before it goes bad, and toss it in. It’s really that simple.
Now, many people like to fry their frittatas. Personally, I never do. It’s just far more “clean eating friendly” to bake them.
So here’s a recipe for one version, and I’m sure I’ll have many more to come.
