SO, WHAT IS A FRITTATA?
At its core, a frittata is an Italian omelette. However, what sets a frittata apart from a typical omelette are two specific things:
- The fillings in a frittata (like cheese, ham, veggies, etc.) are mixed in and cooked with the eggs – rather than folded into the center of an omelette.
- A traditional frittata, which translates to fried in Italian, is normally started in a pan on the stovetop – and finished inside the oven.
Think of a frittata as an Italian version of a Spanish tortilla española. Or, better yet, a crustless quiche.
But today, we’re breaking rule number one. Yep – forget the stovetop/oven combo. We’re making our frittata in a rice cooker.
And it’s delicious!
