4. Frittata

Ingredients for 6 servings:

  • 6-7 large eggs
  • 1/4 cup heavy cream or 1/3 cup of milk
  • Use your favorite omelet ingredients, just try and keep it to around 2 cups total of ingredients, (unless you have something like spinach, in which case you can use more than 2 cups total because it shrinks)
  • 1-1&1/2 cups of cheddar cheese (or whatever cheese you like)
  • Salt and pepper
  • Fresh thyme and garlic
  • Butter or cooking spray (or another oil substitute)


  1. In a cast iron skillet, oil your pan and evenly spread out your fillings, (if you have something like bacon cook beforehand, or if you have spinach wilt beforehand, with garlic and thyme in the pan)
  2. In a bowl, mix the eggs evenly and mix with the heavy cream or milk
  3. Pour the egg mixture into the skillet on top of the fillings, making sure the eggs cover the fillings for the most part, put some of the cheese in now
  4. Cook on medium heat until the eggs start to set on the top, place more cheese on top, and then broil in the oven until the top is golden brown)
  5. Slice in 6 pieces like a pie and serve!
