Frittata -Yummy Morning, Noon & Night!

Close Up of Frittata in Pan

What is a frittata? Originated in Italy, it is basically an omelet that is flat, firm, and baked in the oven. Some call it a crustless quiche. Perfect for any meal from breakfast to dinner. They are easy, delicious, and a great dish for a brunch.

Basic Frittata Ingredients:

  • 6 Large Eggs, 8 Eggs for a 12-inch Skillet
  • ¼ Cup Milk or Half & Half or Heavy Cream
  • 2 Garlic Cloves, minced
  • ¼ Teaspoon Sea Salt
  • ¼ Freshly Ground Black Pepper
  • More Than Olives Olive Oil

Fresh Veggie Frittata Ingredients:

  • 4 Scallion Onions, cleaned & chopped
  • ½ Cup Asparagus, tender parts chopped
  • ½ Cup Yellow or Crookneck Zucchini, sliced & quartered
  • ½ Cup Cherry Tomatoes, halved
  • ½ Cup Mozzarella, shredded
  • ½ Cup Cheddar Cheese, shredded
  • ¼ Cup Basil or Chives, chopped

Directions:

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. In a small bowl, add together the ingredients of the Basic Frittata Recipe and gently whisk them, just until combined. Set aside to add into the pan later. 

Using an oven-proof 10 or 12-inch sauté pan (cast iron is great) drizzle your choice of More Than Olives Olive Oil. (Arbequina “Estate” Extra Virgin, Garlic Olive Oil, or Basil Olive Oil

Heat the More Than Olives Olive Oil and add the prepared veggies, except tomatoes, and cook until they are just beginning to get tender. Stirring occasionally.

When the veggies are ready, stir in the herbs and tomatoes. Pour in the frittata base, gently distributing it among the vegetables. Sprinkle the frittata with the cheese and put the pan in the oven. 

Bake for 15 to 20 minutes, or until the eggs are set firm and the top is lightly golden. Allow the frittata to cool slightly before slicing and serving.

Roasted Red Pepper, Mushroom, Spinach & Sausage Frittata Ingredients:

  • 1 Shallot, cleaned & diced
  • 1 Roasted Red Bell Pepper, chopped
  • 2 Cups Fresh Spinach, chopped
  • 4 Ounces Ground Sausage, your choice of flavor (country, hot, chicken, breakfast)
  • 6 Ounce Fresh Mushrooms, sliced
  • 1 cup Mozzarella Cheese, shredded or Feta Cheese, crumbled

Directions:

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. In a small bowl, add together the ingredients of the Basic Frittata Recipe and gently whisk them, just until combined. Set aside to add into the pan later. 

Using an oven-proof 10 or 12-inch sauté pan (cast iron is great) add the ground sausage and cook until the sausage is fully cooked. During the cooking process break up the sausage into small pieces. Drain the cooked sausage and set it aside. 

In the same pan, drizzle your choice of More Than Olives Olive Oil. (Arbequina “Estate” Extra Virgin, Garlic Olive Oil, or Basil Olive Oil) 

Heat the More Than Olives Olive Oil and add the prepared shallots and mushrooms. Sauté them until they are just beginning to get tender and the moisture from the mushrooms has evaporated. Then add into the pan the roasted red bell peppers, cooked sausage, and spinach. Stir the mixture to combine.  

Pour in the frittata base egg mixture, gently distributing it among the cooked mixture. Sprinkle the frittata with the cheese and place the pan in the oven. 

Bake for 15 to 20 minutes, or until the eggs are set firm and the top is lightly golden. Allow the frittata to cool slightly before slicing and serving.

Tips for the perfect Frittata:

The Eggs- Gently beat the eggs just enough to blend the whites and yolks. Overbeating will cause the frittata to poof up in the oven, then fall when cooling.

Cheese- A Frittata doesn’t have to have cheese but it is a great ingredient to help bind the frittata together. Any cheese will work- goat cheese, cheddar, feta, mozzarella, gouda, or Swiss.

Moisture- Watery ingredients like tomatoes, zucchini, mushrooms can make your frittata a little too juicy. Try to get that moisture to evaporate by stirring often during the sautéing process. 

Feeding a crowd- A frittata can easily be doubled and turned into an egg-bake casserole. Just use a greased 9×13-inch baking dish and bake until the eggs are set. Cool slightly and cut into squares.

At More Than Olives we thoughtfully select specialty foods that will enhance your kitchen culinary experiences. We continue to look for new products and we welcome you to visit our Folsom store for tasting experiences.

“This is a great little place. The staff is super friendly and helpful. We were visiting from GA and couldn’t take the large bottles of oil or vinegar back with us on the plane so they helped us pick out our favorites and shipped them to us. It all arrived in perfect condition. Everything is so good but our favorite is the Sex on the Beach balsamic vinegar! If you’re in Folsom you have to go! ❤️”
Jennifer Pearson

“The olive oils and vinegars are so tasty. I love how easy it is to refill the bottles. I am looking forward to salads, marinades and more this summer as fresh fruits and vegetable become available. Love the staff and love the quality of the products.”
