Today for breakfast, I had this delicious frittata!  Let me tell you, it was the best frittata I have ever had.  I just love frittatas and quiches!  Many of you may not know what the differences are between quiches and frittatas so today I thought I would share a little information on the differences between these two dishes.

A quiche is a rich and creamy dish that usually includes cream, half and half or milk to give it a velvety texture.  It usually sits in some kind of crust like a potato crust or a pastry crust.  An assortment of ingredients such as bacon, mushrooms, broccoli etc… are added to the egg and cream mixture to make a unique quiche of your liking.  It is typically baked in the oven.

A frittata is a delicious blend of eggs, cheese and your favorite meats and vegetables.  The eggs do not usually have any milk, cream or half and half mixed in.  Frittatas typically do not have a crust and they are cooked on the stove top and finished off in the oven.

 

 

I chose to make a frittata this morning and it was absolutely delicious!  Frittatas are very easy to make and it is a quick way to get breakfast on the table for the whole family!  I might also mention that we serve this dish for dinner as well.  I like to serve it with a side of fresh organic hash brown potatoes.

So the next time you are looking for a delicious and savory dish to make that the whole family will enjoy, pull out this recipe and give it a try.  It is one of my families favorite dishes.

 

The Best Frittata I Have Ever Had! A Delicious Organic Recipe!

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Cook Time: 20 minutes

Serving Size: 1 piece

The Best Frittata I Have Ever Had!  A Delicious Organic Recipe!

Ingredients

  • 7 large organic eggs
  • 4 oz pancetta or 4-6 pieces of bacon cut into 1" pieces
  • 1 onion chopped
  • 1 cup broccoli spears cut into bite size pieces
  • 1/2 cup cheese of choice
  • salt and pepper to taste

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 450 F.
  2. In an oven safe 10" skillet over medium heat, cook the pancetta or bacon until almost done (about 7 minutes). If using bacon you might need to remove so it doesn't get to crisp, but the pancetta will cook up fine with the onions and broccoli.
  3. Leave the bacon/pancetta grease in the pan and add onion and broccoli and cook for another 5-7 minutes until almost fully cooked.
  4. In a medium bowl add the eggs, salt and pepper and whisk together until well blended. Pour egg mixture into skillet. If you removed the bacon, add it back into the pan at this time.
  5. Top mixture with cheese and place your oven safe skillet into the oven.
  6. Bake for 20 minutes.

    Are you using any additional oil in your pan or is the bacon grease enough to keep it from sticking? I may do a quiche & frittata for Christmas brunch. : )

  2. Whole Lifestyle Nutrition says:

    Hey Rhonda I had plenty of oil from the bacon grease. As you see I used my stainless steel pan and had absolutely no issues with it sticking. The pan is heated properly and the eggs are left untouched once you put them into the pan and the natural sugars in this dish create a natural nonstick surface and a delicious crust (if you want to call it that) on the frittata. It would make for a perfect brunch!

    I love frittatas and egg dishes like it as well. Your recipe sounds delicious with the pancetta and the broccoli. It’s great that you can switch up the cheeses for different flavours as well.
