Frittatas are endlessly versatile, chalk full of delicious veggies from the garden, and great for any meal of the day! And unlike a quiche, they are much healthier for you!
Frittata versus quiche: a big difference
Frittata and quiche are both egg dishes with a combination of cheeses, vegetables, and/or meats. Unlike a quiche, a frittata does not have a pastry crust and cream is not added to the eggs, making it much healthier.
In our family, we love making frittata, because we never make the same thing twice! The flavors can be changed just by changing the main vegetable or the cheese. Try swapping out the kale for broccoli or the parm for cheddar. Like things spicy? Replace the basil with a dash of red pepper flakes or cayenne! Wanting additional protein? Add crumbled bacon, sausage, or diced ham when you add the veggies.
Round out the meal with grilled bread, toast with jam, or your favorite take-and-bake bread warmed while the frittata bakes. Order scallions, kale, garlic scapes, and eggs (everything except cheese!) from our market and make this dish a fun addition to breakfast, lunch, or dinner!
