I am so excited about this easy frittata recipe. Frittata sounds really fancy to me. Something about the word just seems fancier then what it really is (a kind of omelette. Dare I say easier) I feel like I should be at a beach house sipping a mimosa. But here’s the truth, a frittata is EASY! All you have to do for this easy frittata recipe is layer your veggies and meat then pour the egg mixture over it.

Then….leave it alone. Move it to the oven for a few minutes and then….that’s it. Seriously. That’s it. It’s so easy.

I almost forgot the best part. It’s DELICIOUS!! Fluffy and light and packed with cheesy goodness. I literally sat on the floor after shooting this and ate this straight from the pan. Probably for longer than I would like to admit. Not ashamed, worth it.

I’m putting this easy frittata recipe into our weekend breakfast rotation for sure.

What is the difference between an omelette and this easy frittata recipe?

A classic omelette is made quicker over a higher heat, plus served right away. A frittata is made over a low heat, no mixing and finished in the oven. This easy frittata recipe hits all three. Plus a frittata is better served slightly warm or room temperature so it’s perfect for a brunch or gathering. 

What kind of pan is best to use for a frittata?

The best kind of pan to use for this easy frittata recipe is one you can place in the oven. I love using my cast iron pan for this recipe.
