You Say "Frittata", I say "Frittata"
What is a frittata?
How is a frittata different than an omelette?
These are all questions I had when I first heard this lovely Italian word. The Italian word "frittata" derives from the word "friggere" which actually means fried. This was originally a general term for cooking eggs in a pan or skillet, anywhere from fried eggs to an omelet.
In the last fifty years, "frittata" has transformed to "Italy's version of an open-face omelette". That's right, no flipping of eggs will be happening when you make a frittata.
Here are some key tips on how to make the best tasting frittata in a clean and simple way!
1. Eggs for a frittata should be beaten vigorously, to incorporate more air than traditional omelettes, to allow a more filling and fluffier result.
2. Add a mixture of chopped vegetables, herbs and spices, and a little bit of feta in your egg mixture for a delicious tasting frittata.
3. The mixture should be cooked and covered over low heat for at least 10- 20 minutes, until the top is no longer runny.
