How to Make Light and Fluffy Stovetop Frittatas
It is so easy to make this light and fluffy egg frittata recipe.
- The secret I have found is to not skimp on the dairy. Full fat fluffs this frittata up like a souffle. It is hard to tell from my pictures, but when I took this frittata out of the oven, it was a good inch over the edge of the skillet! How cool is that?
- Another secret is to whisk the egg mixture to allow lots of air to get in. This air helps the frittata puff up :-).
- I make my frittatas in a cast iron skillet so I can go from cooking the eggs and vegetables on the stove, straight into the oven.
You will find frittatas to be very similar to an omelet, but frittatas are easier for me because I don’t have to flip the egg over onto the filling.
This is the first Mother’s Day that I will be home to celebrate in YEARS. That probably sounds really weird to you, but every year there is a huge volleyball tournament over Mother’s Day. (Who the heck does that?) Well, this year she isn’t playing in this tournament. We get to celebrate together as a family!!!
Even better, I don’t have to get up at 5:00 am, drive to the boonies, and eat a protein bar for breakfast.
Being a volleyball mom may be a LOT, but I know everything I do is appreciated. Last year she made me a giant poster last year…just don’t read the cussing in the car part!! (My birthday is within a few days of Mother’s Day, so I get twice the appreciation LOL.)
Have you seen JaM Cellars Butter Chardonnay yet? It is a wine you need to try next. It is perfect for Mother’s Day, brunch, or anytime! JaM is made by second-generation Napa Valley vintners John and Michele are the “J” and the “M” in JaM Cellars. They made these wines in a style they love to enjoy with their friends any day of the week. You can find JaM in not only Butter Chardonnay, but JaM Cabernet and Toast Sparkling too. A JaM for every occasion!
And don’t expect any boring stuff over at JaM! “We take our wines seriously; we just don’t take ourselves seriously!” – JaM Cellars.
I am ready to JaM into a cool glass of Butter and enjoy a real breakfast!
