Frequently Asked Questions

Can I make a frittata without a cast iron skillet?

Yes, though a cast iron skillet gives the best results. You can use any oven-safe skillet you have.

How do I know when my frittata is done?

The edges should be set, and the center should only jiggle slightly. You can insert a knife into the center, and it should come out clean.

Can I freeze frittata?

Yes! Cool the frittata completely, then slice and wrap portions individually in plastic wrap and foil. Freeze for up to a month. Reheat in the oven or microwave.
