Make this easy egg Frittata recipe and enjoy a lazy weekend with friends. Frittata might be tricky to spell but it is really easy to make. I got fancy! It sounds so fancy! I spent most of my life eating eggs scrambled or boiled.I’m told that frittata mostly translates from Italian to English as the word “fried.”
Basically, this term was used to described eggs made in a skillet. So they were not describing our current version of fried egg. You know, the one where you crack an egg onto a hot pan and then flip it over?
Similar to an omelet, this frittata recipe starts out on the stove top. But unlike an omelette, the finish happens under the broiler. When I first heard this I was not ready. A broiler brings intense heat down on whatever is underneath it. I could not imagine what it would do to eggs.

That’s where a good old fashioned timer comes in. When I make a frittata, I always set the timer when it goes into the oven. Eggs burn easily and who wants to mess up a good meal with dark brown patches?

I recently shared my frittata recipe with friends from during our girls 19th annual girls only weekend. It’s not always the six of us so this year was really special. It was fun to supervise and they worked hard. We even roasted some potatoes and carrots as a side dish. We spent all weekend talking about leaning into healthier breakfast choices. Everyone is so busy and I’m glad we had a chance to cook and learn together.
