What is the difference between a frittata and an omelet? Frittata, which translates to “fried” in Italian, is an egg-based classic brunch dish. While it’s similar to an omelet, the way a frittata is cooked is what sets it apart. Frittatas are cooked in a cast-iron pan or oven-safe skillet because they are started on the stove-top and then finished in the oven. And, unlike omelets, frittata fillings are mixed in with the eggs in the pan rather than folded in the center. To make a frittata, well-beaten eggs are cooked on the stove in a hot skillet, along with the fillings, for a few minutes until the outer edges are set. Then the pan is transferred to the oven where the eggs finish cooking. While omelets are typically made to serve just one, frittatas can serve one or many! That is a huge positive! This frittata recipe is special, the flavors are simple but addicting. Give it a try, I promise you can’t have just one slice. Do you have a special frittata recipe to share? I would love to hear it!
