How to Make Frittata
Frittata is an Italian omelette made of eggs, with various ingredients such as cheese and vegetables. Frittata is usually thicker and more filling than regular omelettes.
In this recipe, you’ll learn how to make an easy frittata with eggs and cherry tomatoes.
A few days ago, I chanced upon some fresh and mini-sized cherry tomatoes in my farmers market. The cherry tomatoes were the size of tiny grapes, with vibrant color and organically grown in California.
I bought some and decided to make them into this healthy cherry tomatoes frittata.
It’s very easy to make frittata and this egg dish is perfect as breakfast or brunch. The recipe takes only 15 minutes to make and the end result is absolutely rewarding.
It takes only 3 main ingredients: eggs, cherry tomatoes and Parmesan cheese. Start off on the stove and finish it in the oven. It’s that simple!
Imagine each bite of the frittata is bursting with the juicy cherry tomatoes; they actually pop and burst in the mouth. Try my recipe, it’s really amazing!
