• Cut the frittata into thick wedges and serve with vegetables or a salad. • Serve cold for picnics or packed lunches. • Use left over vegetables in the frittata, rather than letting food go to waste. • Replace bacon with lardoons. Did you know? A frittata is an egg based dish, prepared in a similar way to an omelette, except that the eggs are beaten more to give a more ‘fluffy’ and deeper texture. They are usually served in sliced wedges, a bit like a pizza.
