What is a Frittata

Frittata is an egg-based Italian dish similar to an omelette or crustless quiche. Enriched with ‘add in’ ingredients such as meats, cheese and/or vegetables. The Italian work frittata derives from friggere and roughly means fried. Frittata was originally a general term for cooking eggs in a skillet. Literally almost any ingredient can be used to make a frittata.
