Basil, Caramelized Onion, & Goat Cheese Frittata

A baked omelette? A crustless quiche? Our Italian Basil, Caramelized Onion, & Goat Cheese Frittata is lightly creamy, fluffy and easy-to-make in under 25 minutes.

What is the difference between a frittata and a quiche?

Great question! The simple answer is: the crust!

A Quiche is like a pie with a more creamier base, usually thicker in depth, and takes a little more prepping in the kitchen. A frittata is typically a simple whisked egg mixture that is poured over sautéed veggies in a skillet to be baked for the half the time, resulting in a lighter breakfast (yet still satisfying).

Is frittata freezer-friendly?

Yes, you can freeze a cooked frittata! You can either store leftovers in the fridge for up to 4 days or freeze in an air-tight container after wrapping tightly in Saran Wrap to keep it fresh.

Similar to quiche, our cooked Italian Basil, Caramelized Onion, & Goat Cheese Frittata can be prepped ahead of time, making it perfect for Valentine’s Day breakfast-in-bed, weekend brunch, and so on.

Now, it’s time to grab our aprons and begin cooking deliciousness!
