Have you ever had the situation when you open the fridge, and you see the true color of the walls and the shelves of it? This means only one thing – you need to do some grocery shopping ASAP! But you are not quite there yet, and the mood is just not right. But a sore subject “What should I eat?” or “What’s for dinner?” is keep bothering you.  Then you remember how many take outs you did lately, and you are trying to stick to a healthy living… All these mixed thoughts are rushing in, and you disappointedly close the fridge. Then you check it again in a couple of minutes, and… nothing changed, still empty. Well, you are not alone in this epic battle, and frittata might be the answer for you as it was for me for so many times. This is how I created most of my frittatas, and in this post I will share my Kale, fennel, and parmesan frittata.

Most of the time we have left a bit of this, and a little bit of that in the fridge. I bet there are some eggs in your fridge. Somehow these guys are the last heroes in this empty fridge battle. And maybe you have some milk left, and a bit of different veggies that did not fit in the previous recipes or leftovers from your past dinners. In my case, I had some leftover veggies from the Tuscan soup: half of the fennel bulb, a few kale leaves, one tomato and a whole bunch of thyme.

The magic of the frittata is that you can make it with almost anything you have on hand: chicken, beef, sausages, vegetables, any leftovers that pair well with eggs.

You must have the main ingredients, though – eggs and milk. The rest is just your flight of fancy.

There are just so many good things about frittata:

  • Incredibly easy to make
  • Super-fast to put together
  • One-pot meal (less cleaning and mess)
  • Healthy and nutritious
  • Customizable and utilizable 😉

Frittatas are usually made for breakfast, lunch or brunch. But a good frittata along with the green salad can be a wonderfully light and easy dinner. Most of the time I cook frittatas for dinners, although Sunday brunch frittata sounds very appealing to me.

To make it kid’s friendly version:

Use the muffin cups to make individual frittatas. Just grease well or line with parchment paper the muffin tin, fill the cups and bake for 15 minutes.

As you can see frittata is a real saver and can be done in so many different ways. The whole point is that you can make it anytime with almost anything you have in your fridge or pantry, and every time it will be delicious, and creative. Use the recipe below as a starting point and build your frittatas the way you and your family like.

Tips and Tricks:

  • Use full-fat whole milk. It will make frittata more creamy and flavorful. However, I once was out of the whole milk and had a little of the almond So used it instead and the result was great. It wasn’t that creamy, but if you can’t have dairy, it’s a nice substitution. Use equal amount to substitute almond milk for the whole milk. Will post a dairy-free frittata in the future.
  • Never over bake frittata. Always look for custard-like texture. Over baked frittata will be too dry.
