Egg Frittata Recipe

Updated on October 30, 2012

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.

  • 3 Potatoes, Medium

Instructions

  1. Wash the spinach and boil it in a small pot with 1/2 cup of water for 1 minute.
  2. Use a mesh sieve to drain the water from the spinach.

  9. Turn the heat to low, and cover the skillet with a lid and cook for 12 minutes. Occasionally remove any water formed by steam onto the lid.
  10. 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.
  11. Turn off the heat and put the lid back on the skillet for another 5 minutes or until the cheese has melted.
  12. Serve the egg frittata like you would with a pizza.

      My kids love eggs too, especially my youngest one. She wants to eat egg for every meal. But of course I can't grant her that wish.

      Thank you Marcy for the vote up!

      Oh, I am hungry now! I love eggs in any type of dish, and this one is especially tempting to see. Frittatas are so elegant, even though they're fairly easy to make. Voted up and up!

      I've read the frittata was probably the forerunner of the omelette. It makes sense. And you're right, they're so easy to make you can call them fast food for your kitchen. Some nights when I have no time or inclination to cook up something more. that fills the bill nicely.
