Egg Frittata Recipe
Egg Frittata is one of the easiest and most simple recipes for a quick meal that is both delicious and nutritious. You can add in whatever ingredients you like. Egg frittata is also perfect for young kids to eat because it is very soft and easy to chew. My kids also call it egg pizza because the final product looks like a pizza.
The key to a perfect egg frittata is the right temperature with the right amount of time. Too high of a heat will overcook the egg and it will turn out too dry to eat. But too short of the time at low heat might result in the egg not being fully cooked.

- Cut the string cheese into thin circles and place them on top of the egg frittata. You can replace the string cheese with another type of cheese that you prefer. Just make sure it is shredded cheese or thinly sliced cheese so that it is easy to melt.
