Frittata is a traditional Italian dish that may resemble a quiche sans crust. A frittata can be a blank canvas that allows you to experiment with different seasonal vegetables (think asparagus in spring, carrots in winter). You may also want to add different spices, herbs and cheeses! I love this dish because it is so versatile. Frittata is also a lighter alternative to many traditional brunch items.

Chefs Tip: Make the Frittata ahead of time and reheat in the oven! This tip will make hosting brunch a breeze!
