Frittata

frittataI’ve never made a Frittata before. I’ve ordered it from restaurants but I always thought it was just a fancy omelet. I didn’t know you stuck the pan in the oven to cook the frittata. Well, one learns something everyday! Once again, I learned something from Frugal Feeding. The great thing about omelets – and now frittatas – is you don’t need a whole lot of “filling” to make your own creation. You could have an assortment of vegetables and herbs, small portions of leftover meats, and a bunch of different cheeses from various recipes, then BAM! You can make a frittata. And people will think you spent HOURS slaving over the stove making a fancy meal. Ha! Another great thing about frittatas (aside from being gluten-free and low-carb) is that it’s perfect for any meal: breakfast, brunch, lunch or dinner!

  • 1 cup of Parmesan or any kind of shredded cheese
