Ready for a twist on your morning routine? The frittata, Italy's take on the omelette, is here to shake up your breakfast with its fluffy and dense texture. Unlike the classic omelette, a frittata is filled with your choice of ingredients and finished off in the oven for that perfect fluffiness. Here's how you can make a delicious frittata at home with ease.


  • 6 eggs

  • 1/3 cup (70 ml) of milk

  • 2 medium-sized tomatoes

  • ½ a bell pepper or a small one if preferred

  • 7 ounces (200 grams) of mozzarella cheese

  • 2 ounces (50-60 grams) of spinach

  • Olive oil

  • Salt and pepper to taste

How to Make It:

  1. Start by finely chopping an onion, bell pepper (yellow or red works great), and tomatoes.

  2. Heat a bit of butter in a pan, then add your chopped veggies. Give them a good stir.

  3. Toss in the spinach.

  4. In a bowl, whisk together the eggs, a pinch of salt and pepper, and milk until well combined.

  5. Stir in the cheese into the egg mixture, then pour it all into the pan over the veggies.

  6. Lower the heat and let it cook until it's semi-firm.

  7. Preheat your oven to 392 degrees Fahrenheit (200 degrees Celsius) and pop the pan in for about 10 minutes.

  8. For a cheesy touch, sprinkle a little more cheese on top towards the end.

This customizable frittata recipe allows you to mix and match fillings based on your taste preferences, making it a versatile dish for any meal. Whether you're a cheese fanatic or a veggie lover, this frittata recipe is bound to become your go-to for a satisfying and delicious breakfast.
