Not your typical zucchini quiche. This fantastic medley of fresh veggies may be served either hot or cold. You can even cut it into small pieces and serve as finger food!

Air Fryer Breakfast Frittata

Rating: 4.52 stars
Frittatas are easy to make using a cake pan that fits in the air fryer basket. Switch up the ingredients to suit your taste. If you are worried about the frittata sticking to the cake pan, line the bottom of the pan with parchment paper.

What Is a Frittata?

A frittata is an Italian egg dish where the eggs are mixed with the ingredients and not folded in as a filling, like in an omelet.

Frittata Alle Erbette (Baked Herb Omelette)

Rating: 4.57 stars
This baked omelette is quick, easy and a great summer dish. Scamorza cheese is an Italian cheese similar to mozzarella, that's harder and has more flavor. You can use mozzarella or a semi-hard cheese instead. This omelette would go well with a side dish like cherry tomato and anchovy salad.

Asparagus and Mushroom Frittata

Rating: 4.28 stars
This is one of my favorites. The most important thing (I think) is to cook it slowly so the eggs stay tender.

Potato and Vegetable Frittata

Rating: 4.23 stars
This is an easy and filling supper dish, good with cooked greens or a tossed salad and some sprouted grain bread. Almost any vegetables can go into the mix; just make sure they're all cut up before you begin, and add the longest cooking ones first.

Tortilla Espanola

Rating: 4.43 stars
Tortilla Espanola is a dish I make all the time at home. My boyfriend's family are Spanish, and he just loves this authentic dish. It's easy to prepare and always a crowd pleaser. Traditionally this dish only uses only onions, potatoes and egg; however I like to add a little green, either parsley or chives depending on your taste. They're both wonderful.

Keto Breakfast Frittata

Rating: 4.86 stars
Dress up your eggs with some great keto add-ins. All the veggies are low-carb, and they add great flavor and texture, not to mention, great nutrition. Leave out the Tabasco for sensitive palates. Bonus: Leftovers reheat well, for those in-a-hurry mornings.
