17 Frittata Recipes
Broccoli, Pancetta, and Parmesan Frittata
The frittata is a high-wow, low-difficulty dish, though some cooks shy away, thinking that the two-stage stovetop/oven technique is tricky (it's not). The dish is also cheap and, using our approach, balanced and healthy.
In this first recipe, save time by microwaving the broccoli florets in a covered microwave-safe bowl at HIGH for 2 minutes or until crisp-tender.
Frittatas are some of the most efficient vehicles for leftover vegetables. Here, we combine roasted butternut squash with quick-cooking kale for a fiber-rich breakfast duo. A touch of dairy lends custard-like creaminess to the egg mixture.
Creamy Smoked Salmon and Dill Frittata
Smoked salmon and eggs go hand in hand, and combining them in this frittata makes for an elegant and delicious dish.
Corn Frittata with Pecorino-Romano Cheese
There isn't an herb that doesn't go well with crisp fresh corn—dill, basil, cilantro, lovage—but dark green Italian parsley is also good and bracing against the corn's sweetness. For an extra dose of smoky essence, sprinkle a pinch of smoked paprika over each serving.
Two-Tomato, Basil, and Goat Cheese Frittata
The addition of both grape and plum tomatoes gives this vegetarian frittata a boost of fresh flavor. With creamy goat cheese scattered throughout, every bite engulfs a pillowy cloud of light, tangy flavor. Make it for a crowd, or an at-home weekend brunch. Either way, eggs and goat cheese is a healthy, protein-packed combination that is hard to rival.
