    "Frittata" is the name given to a dish made from an almost endless variety of ingredients set in eggs.  It can be cooked on the stove or in the oven.  The final creation can resemble anything from a pancake to a casserol.  Considering it's versatility it can be made to accomidate the main or side dish for breakfast, lunch and dinner.
    Let your imagination run wild because frittatas can be a quick fix or an eligant cullinary creation to serve guests. Between quick and eligant is the best place to describe the ease of preperation.  A saute pan, mixing bowl and baking pan are the main tools needed for this method.
      First; if meat is used, bacon for example, cook that first then remove from the pan leaving enough grease to sautee vegetables.  Slice to moderate size and set aside.
      Next; saute onions then garlic and finally mix in spinach until wilted.  Remove from heat and stir in the bacon. 
      Lastly; add this to a bowl of lightly scrambled eggs. Incorporate these along with some swiss cheese until combined.  Pour into a prepared casserole dish to bake at 350 degrees.
      I like to carefully place thinly sliced tomatoes over the top for color and presentation before placing in the oven.  Bake the fritatta until a fork stuck in the middle comes out clean.
      The ingreedients and the method described above should give a good idea as to what a frittata is all about.  With a little culinary sense and some imagination a frittata can be many things.

    This would make an excellent hub with some added pics to make our mouth water.

    I have a long standing Christmas tradition of breakfast frittata. Hubby and I make breakfast for the entire family...fritatta works best. We make it and freeze it in advance, and add some stuff right before we re-heat it..like tomatoes..stuff that doesnt freeze well. It is delicious,easy,  budget friendly, and makes everyone happy!!

    In our house Frittata is the traditional Easter Sunday Brunch main course.  We make it with all the best Italian meats and cheese in the oven.
