Baked Frittatas are one of my favorite foods. But I was too frightened to try creating my own frittata until reading Stonesoup’s guide to the ultimate frittata.
I assumed I’d have to start frying the eggs on the stove, flip them without causing a mess, then transfer everything to the oven, and so on.
Jules learned that baking frittatas in the oven is the best way to cook them, which piqued my interest in preparing frittatas.
How difficult can it be when I can scramble eggs and switch on the oven? It turns out that’s not the case. Frittatas are the simplest egg dish you’ll ever make!
Jules’ recipe was reduced to its most basic form. You may customize it, just like the orzo risotto recipe, by using any ingredients you have on hand.
Although Jules’ recipe calls for a springform pan, which works great, I’ve found that a 9-inch square baking dish (lined crosswise, like this) works just as well.
