Tips to cook the best frittata (stovetop and baked)

  1. Here is the ratio that you will need to know to make the perfect frittatas. You can cook a larger quantity or lesser quantity following this: For every 6 eggs, 1/4th cup heavy or full-fat cream, 1 cup cheese and 2 cups of filling (veggies or meat or both).

2.Here are some time tested combinations that you ought to try:

Spinach and cheese,Broccoli, onion and cheddar cheese,Mushrooms and goat cheese,Cherry tomatoes, zucchini, mozzarella and basil,Onion, carrot, bell pepper, cheese and chives. If you want a rich and creamy taste and texture use full-fat cream instead of just milk.

3.You can also substitute it with yoghurt, cream cheese or sour cream. 

4. For the perfect consistency and texture, cook the vegetables first. Raw vegetables release water and could ruin the texture of the frittata. Cook the vegetables until tender by sauteing, roasting or steaming. Add the seasoning. And then the eggs. If you add the eggs too with the veggies, eggs cook faster, and the vegetables will not be done. You can also use a toothpick to check if the frittata is done well.
