Now, you may be wondering, what exactly IS a frittata? For years, I've made egg dishes, but I didn't discover this amazing dish until recently. A frittata resembles an omelette, but there's no need to fuss with the flipping. It has the flavor of a quiche, but there's no need to roll out a pie crust.
Now, technically speaking, Frittata means "fried" in Italian. So an authentic frittata is generally fried in a frying pan until the edges are just set. Then it is either flipped or transferred to the oven to finish cooking. My frying pans are rather large, so it would probably take for entire carton of eggs for me to fill my frittata pan. So I opted to bake mine in a cute little pie pan I picked up recently (which is another reason I decided to skip the stovetop!) Plus, I've been on a "one pot cooking" kick lately, attempting to eliminate dished piling up in my sink. So, while this dish may be slightly lacking in technique, it makes up for it in the taste department!
