Looking for a quick and easy recipe? It doesn't get much simpler than frittata.
Heat a pan, add some beaten eggs and flavorings and slowly cook to puffed perfection. Frittatas are easy to make and are versatile, perfect for breakfast or brunch, even dinner. Serve slices hot, fresh out of the pan, or make the frittata ahead of time and cool to room temperature before setting slices out on the table.
Flavor the frittata with whatever you've got on hand: sauteed vegetables, leftover meats, fresh herbs, whatever cheese sounds good at the moment. With toppings at the ready, a frittata cooks up quickly — ready in no more than half an hour after you first heat up the pan.
As Nancy Silverton demonstrates in our Master Class series, frittatas need not be thick and spongy. And they're not just for breakfast: "But where eggs for dinner can feel as if you've just thrown something together to satisfy your hunger... with this beautiful plate-size creation, an arugula salad and a glass of wine in front of me, I felt as if I had thrown a dinner party for one."
