Our Most Popular Frittata Recipes

If we’re ever not sure what to make for brunch with friends, it’s most likely we’ll end up making a frittata. The egg dish is so easy to make and yet always feels special. It also happens to be infinitely adaptable. Really, there’s just about no end to what vegetables, meat, and cheese you can add to it.

Beyond brunch, though, a frittata is a workhorse of a dish. It’s well-suited for a pack-and-go breakfast, a casual lunch, and even a weeknight dinner. Oh, and it doesn’t even matter what temperature you eat it at — hot, warm, room-temp, and cold are all tasty. Here are our most favorite ways to cook a frittata.

Vegetable-Filled Frittata Recipes

Meaty Frittata Recipes

To bulk up a frittata even further, we love sprinkling in some meat, whether it’s crispy bacon bits, sausage crumbles, or prosciutto.

Quirky Frittata Recipes

Vegetables and meat aren’t the only things you can add to a frittata, though. If you have leftover pasta or even just a bag of frozen tater tots, you should definitely stir them in.

Hand-Held Frittata Recipes

A frittata is pretty portable in its own right, but to make it even more so, bake it in individual muffin cups or slide a square between two slices of bread.
