Cheri's Easy Breakfast Baked Frittata Recipes

Updated on February 9, 2013

Frittata in Pan

Ingredients for Italian Oven Frittata

Sauté Together:

  • Pancetta: 1/4 lb chopped
  • Olive Oil: 1 tbsp for cooking
  • Onion: 1/4 chopped
  • Garlic: large clove minced.

In a mixing bowl:

  • Egg Beaters: 2 small boxes (1 qt)
  • Salt and Pepper to taste
  • Red Chili: a pinch
  • Basil: 5-6 leaves chopped
  • Shredded Mozzarella: 1/2 cup
  • Shredded Parmesan: Sprinkle on top

Ingredients and spicing can be modified to your taste. The basic principle of Frittata creating allows for an amazing variety of recipes, including many not included here. I have included Cheri's recipes because we love them. We hope to share more with the public as time goes on. Since she doesn't have time to share these I just could not let her great recipes remain in obscurity.

Instructions for Preparing Italian Frittata

Sauté pancetta until crispy. Add onions. Cook 5-10 minutes. Add garlic,sauté for one minute. Pour contents into 9x13 baking dish.

Pour egg mixture over meat mixture. Top with parmesan cheese. Bake at 350 for 40-50 minutes until the frittata rises.

Let cool for 10 minutes, so it won't fall. Cut into squares.

These instructions will work nicely with the Frittatas that follow.

My daughter Cheri's Fritatta's

My daughter Cheri has learned to cook in a gourmet style but with quick and easy recipes. She has many ways of making many of her dishes. Her Frittatas can be made in many different themes and in variations of those themes. I will share her expertise with you in a simple and easy way. Frittatas make a great breakfast favorite that is light and good for you.

Frittatas possibly were being made before the creation of omelettes and require less attention while baking. Frittatas are great if you really want to serve everybody at the same time. You have to employ a lot of burners to prepare many omelettes at the same time.

Originally, Cheri started making Italian Frittatas but then branched out to Denver Omelette frittatas, Mexican frittatas using soy chorizo and Spanish frittatas. These recipes are using egg beaters but you can substitute 12 large eggs or a combination of both.

Traditional frittatas are cooked on the stove then set in the oven while still in the pan. Cheri prefers to put these in a baking pan in order to serve 8-10 people. The recipes below will serve that many.

As a diabetic I really enjoy this recipe because I can eat quiet a bit without problems with sugar level increases. I hope you enjoy my daughter Cheri's culinary accomplishments!

      Wow, these sound really good. Do you think your daughter would mind if I used them in my bed and breakfast? I like recipes that you have to bake, They are not so work intensive and you can do other things while they're baking. Thanks.
