Recipe Notes

Basic Frittata Recipe

  • 12 eggs, pasture raised, here is why I spend the extra money for Vital Farms eggs.
  • 2 tablespoons fat, I like avocado, coconut, olive oil, or bacon grease.
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • Salt, to taste

 

  1. Whisk all ingredients together

 

 

 

2. Pour into silicon mold*

3. Place on a sheet pan and bake 300° F 20-30 minutes, until the egg is just set. I use my toaster oven if I am only baking one batch.  We don’t have a microwave in our kitchen so our toaster gets a lot of use.

*I LOVE these molds they are a great personal size and I use them for freezing bone broth. You can use muffin tins, but you must grease them first. It may also be harder to clean the tins afterward. But if you just want to give frittatas a try before you buy something, they may be the best option for you. Muffin tins make more (smaller) frittatas and will take less time to cook (about 15 minutes).

Flavor Options

 

Bell Pepper and Kale

  • ½ onion, finely chopped
  • 1 bell pepper, chopped
  • 1 bunch kale, destemmed and chopped

  10. Bake 300° F 20-30 minutes until egg is just set

 

Curry Broccoli

  • 1 head broccoli, cut into florets

  • 1 teaspoon cumin (optional, but I’m obsessed with cumin, and I think it is AMAZING with eggs)
  • (coconut oil)

 

  1. Drizzle broccoli with avocado or coconut (melted)

*I like keeping some greens in the freezer always. I put them in eggs, smothers, or whatever needs some green. I like keeping them in the freezer because they won’t go bad, even if you buy in bulk, and studies have shown some nutrients are more bioavailable after the veggie is frozen.

Tips

  • Cook extra veggies the night before with dinner to use later
  • Use any leftovers you may have in the fridge
  • Try new veggie/spice/flavor combinations
  • After frittatas are done baking, but still hot, sprinkle a little cheese on top
  • Slice to put over a salad
  • Keep them simple and add a vegetable puree to make them more kid-friendly (and add cheese)
  • Use frozen veggies. Frozen broccoli roasts up really nicely, not so much Brussels sprouts 🙂
