Frittatas are a popular breakfast option and you'll often see them on offer at cafes and restaurants. They're a relatively easy dish to make at home but you'll need to keep a few things in mind to avoid ending up with a skillet of sloppy eggs.
The problem with frittatas is that they have a tendency to become either overcooked or watery. Joseph Gordon from Kitchen Conundrums has a few tips too share for the perfect frittata:
- Use cooked ingredients. Vegetables can sweat during the cooking process so cook them first before combining them with the eggs to avoid a watery frittata.
- Pick cheeses that are lower in moisture content.
- Don't over beat the eggs. Beating the eggs too much will create volume and you'll end up with a collapsed frittata, as opposed to a fluffy one.
- Cook the eggs on medium heat to avoid overcooking.
