    Can you make it ahead of time?

    This frittata can be served as a dinner and it’s also great for breakfast, brunch or lunch. The frittata can be stored covered in the fridge for up to 3 days.

    You can eat the cooked frittata cold or heat it in the oven, covered at 350F for 10 – 15 minutes until warmed through.

    What’s the best pan to make a frittata?

    Frittatas are cooked on the stovetop before being baked in the oven, so you want to use an oven proof skillet. I like to use a cast iron pan as they conduct the heat evenly so you don’t get hotspots and the frittata cooks evenly.

    Recipe Notes and Tips

    • Chop the vegetables small and in equal sizes so that they cook through evenly.
    • Preheat the oven before you start cooking, so that it is fully preheated when you are ready to put the frittata in.
    • Check your eggs are fresh by placing them in a bowl of water. If they sink to the bottom they are fresh and good to use. Discard any that float to the top.
