Absolutely delicious! Can I freeze and eat later?
Yes, these frittatas freeze really well!
Thanks for the “tried and true” recipe. It’s the ultimate comfort food in the colder months and it turned out great! For those wondering what a “medium” skillet might measure. I used my grandmother’s antique cast iron which measured 9.75 inches in diameter rim to rim. It took the upper limits of baking time. I worried that the eggs might puff up and overflow, but it turned out beautifully. I don’t think I would try it in a smaller pan than that unless one adjusts the recipe volume.
My son and I made two 9 by 13 pans with spinach, red pepper and mushrooms and well, a pound of ground beef and a pound of ground sausage. Monterey Jack cheese with our farm eggs. With roasted red potatoes on the side. OMG! So amazingly great!
This is a serious hit!!!!!!
Outstanding, easy and delicious!
I would add to your instructions that the final combined ingredients should be mixed together, not just poured in the final step.
Also, maybe a tip for newbs could be that at each completion step you can add to the dish you will be baking in. Then combine and bake.
Easy to make and came out so delicious – I substituted leeks and did not use mushrooms, also added some cheddar. Definitely will be making this again!!
Absolutely the easiest frittata I ever made! It was perfect!
Can I make ahead the night before, refrigerate before baking, and then bake the next morning?
Yes, that will work well.
Another great recipe – I loved your Swedish Meatballs too! This frittata turned out perfectly. Thanks so much!
Absolutely great ingredients for a brunch and an easy lunch too. Thank you ! 🙂
