You can watch the eggs bubble as they cook. Once they start puffing up, you know your frittata is done. Just like a pizza, a frittata is best-served when well-rested. So allow it to cool a little before slicing. Once you have mastered this meal, you’ll realize just about anything can go into a frittata. I especially like it to absorb my leftover vegetables and cheese.

It is such a versatile dish. Have it for breakfast with a slice of sour-dough toast and a pot of coffee. Or for brunch, serve this on top of an arugula salad and pair it with your favorite turkey sausage. For a complete meal you can take to work, slice the finished frittata and separate the pieces into meal-prep containers. This way, you can have healthy, delicious and portable meals for 1-2 days after preparation. Just chuck them in the microwave!

To expand on the theme of convenience, this dish can be partially prepared beforehand. You can chop and sauté the vegetables ahead of time. These can be stored in an air-tight container for 1-2 days. Once you’re ready for a fresh frittata, all you need to do is add in the eggs.

Allow the simplicity and versatility of this dish to unleash your creativity. How would you personalize your frittata?
