How to Make Light and Fluffy 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 a frittata 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 maybe 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.
This easy gluten free frittata recipe pairs beautifully with the creamy butter flavors of this chardonnay.
I am ready to JaM into a cool glass of Butter and enjoy a real breakfast!
How to make a gluten free frittata:
Cook your vegetables first. It helps them release their water and allows the flavors to blend together.
What vegetables are best in a frittata?
The sky is the limit when adding your favorite vegetables in this frittata recipe. Spinach, broccoli, kale, mushrooms…add the vegetables you have on-hand :-).
Add the eggs, cream, and cilantro.
Cooking Tip: Add your seasoning now in the raw egg mixture so that it blends throughout the egg evenly.
Pour the egg mixture into the vegetables and cook for 8 minutes. Put shredded cheese on top and place under a broiler for 2-4 minutes to melt the cheese.
Can I make this frittata recipe dairy-free?
You can easily make this frittata recipe dairy-free by using non-dairy milk like almond milk. Some non-dairy milk contains vanilla and sugar so make sure to use an unsweetened flavor or it may not go well flavor-wise.
I am so excited I get to share this gluten free frittata recipe with you!
