A frittata is similar to an omelet, but is usually thicker and fluffier. It’s actually a lazy version of the traditional omelet in that you simply throw in your desired vegetables, whisk some eggs, incorporate them with the vegetables and let it cook. Because frittatas are not as thin as the traditional French omelet and are usually more bulky with vegetables, ham, bacon or sausages, they are often finished under the broiler so the top can brown while the bottom doesn’t overcook.
The reason why frittatas are often fluffier is because the eggs are beaten quite a bit more than in an omelet in an effort to incorporate more air in the mixture. They can be prepared with almost any vegetable or leftover meat you have around and are a great way to use some veggies that are looking for a vocation.
It makes one of the quickest meal that doesn’t requite any special ingredients and is filling and delicious. This version uses some common vegetables like the zucchini, bell pepper and sweet potato. Since the starchy sweet potato in included, it makes for an even more filling meal that’s ideal around a workout for refueling the tanks.
It is often viewed as an Italian or Spanish specialty.
