A frittata recipe, some would spell it fritatta recipe, that’s this easy just had to find it’s way onto my website. With it’s German twist, this Gemusefrittata is a perfect light supper -- very similar to a quiche.
Don’t know the difference between a frittata and a quiche?
They’re really very similar. Basically, both are egg dishes.
A quiche is usually made by making a custard out of eggs and cream with other ingredients thrown in. It’s then often poured over a crust and baked. Easy quiche recipes usually don’t bother with a crust.
A frittata’s main ingredient is often eggs, with little cream or milk. It’s similar to an omelette and can have cheese, vegetables, meat, potatoes, and even pasta included. Since it comes from the Italian word “fritto”, meaning to fry, this dish is usually first fried in a skillet and then finished off in the oven.
The recipe above is one that I’ve adapted from the German ARD Buffet TV magazine (July 2012). It’s great when you need quick recipes for supper and you have bits of veggies leftovers.
You can always throw in some leftover meat as well. Ham would be delicious, as would any kind of smoked meat.
