Traditionally, a Frittata is an Italian egg-based dish that’s similar to an omelet. The main ingredient in the dish is therefore egg that can be combined with veggies, meats or cheese. The basic difference between a frittata and an egg lies in the way of cooking. The ingredients are combined, cooked for a few minutes in a skillet and then baked so that they become puffed like a pizza. It’s quite easy to make at home and a delicious and filing treat for any time of the day.

Ingredients

  • Eggs                                                     8 large
  • Red bell Pepper, cut into thick slices      1
  • Broccoli, cut into bite-sized florets        6 cups
  • Cheese, grated                                      5 cups
  • Milk                                                     ¼ cup

Equipment Needed

Procedure

  1. Boil the broccoli until it becomes tender.
  2. In a large mixing bowl combine the eggs, milk, salt and pepper using a beater.
  3. Add the boiled broccoli to this and also add 4 cups of the cheese.
  4. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Meanwhile, heat olive oil in a large nonstick oven-safe frying pan.
  5. Once the oil is hot enough, pour the eggs mixture in it and lower the heat to medium.
  6. Cook the egg-mix in the pan without stirring for about 3 minutes to set the bottom of the frittata. Sprinkle the remaining cheese on top.
  7. Once the base of the frittata is done, turn off the heat and transfer the frying pan to the preheated oven.

Note: If you do not have an oven proof frying pan, you can carefully transfer the frittata using a flat spatula to a flat baking tray and continue to bake.

  1. Bake for about 15 minutes or until the frittata is baked at the center and becomes puffy.
  2. Let it cool for 5 minutes and then transfer to a plate using a spatula. Cut into slices and serve warm!
