Not an omelette, or a quiche, but somewhere in between and much easier. (Here's a great explanation of the difference: What's the Difference Between an Omlete and a Frittata?) Not only are the ingredient possibilities endless, but a frittata can be breakfast, brunch, lunch or dinner. It's equally delicious hot or cold, and a perfect take along dish, either for a potluck or a lunch bag. The ingredient possibilities mean that it's easy to please vegetarian, gluten free, or dairy free diets, as well.

Frittatas: Great For Leftovers

Frittatas are an ideal way to use leftovers, whether they are chicken, fish, sausage, ham, fresh or roasted veggies, or even pasta. Really just about anything is going to be delicious when baked in some eggs. This is one of my go to weeknight dinners for when I'm feeling uninspired, or crunched for time. Leftover salmon is one of my favourite ingredients to use here, and the sweet potatoes are a perfect complement, along with fresh spinach.

So Many Ingredient Possibilities

If I had asparagus, it would have gone into this Sweet Potato Salmon Fritatta in place of the other veggies for a classic spring combo. Some other ingredient combo ideas are cauliflower and mushroom, ham and cheese, chicken and broccoli, zucchini, grape tomato and basil, or roast potato and bacon. I really think I could just go on and on, but you get the picture, I'm sure. Let your imagination, or your fridge ingredients decide for you.

If you use an oven proof skillet, you can go from stove top to oven with less cleanup. I happen to have these sweet little mini cast iron skillets, so I made individual frittatas and served them that way, too, for even less cleanup. This is my kind of meal, healthy, versatile, delicious, quick and easy, and to top it off, minimal clean up. Can it get any better?

Eggs are so versatile, healthy, and delicious. Try these great egg recipes, too! Bacon & Egg Breakfast Tacos, or Make Ahead Baked Breakfast Egg Cups

Recipe Notes

It's important not to over beat the eggs, as incorporating too much air will cause the fritatta to pouf up in the oven, then fall. which will flatten the dish and make it very dense.
