10 Frittata Recipes That Beat Boring Scrambled Eggs Any Day

Eggs are highly nutritious, but there are only so many times you can scramble, poach, and fry them before you need to try something new.

Enter the frittata, which is like a cross between fried and scrambled eggs and an omelet.

I love the frittata because it gives you the fluffy fullness of scrambled eggs, the crispiness of fried egg, and all the chewy, gooey, and crunchy fillings of the omelet.

It’s also easy to prepare and cook, endlessly customizable, and very “macro friendly,” which means it can fit into just about any type of meal plan.

These recipes give you all kinds of options, too.

You have sandwich frittatas, mini frittatas, bacon frittatas, and enough vegetable and cheese variations to keep your breakfasts exciting for a week.

So, whether you want to start the day with a high-protein breakfast, try something new for your post-workout meal, or like eating breakfast for dinner, there’s something here for you.

Enjoy!

Kale, Red Pepper & Goat Cheese Frittata

Serves 2

There are two ways to cook a frittata: on the stove, or in the oven. But the third way – using both the stove and the oven – is by far the best.

That way the bottom of the eggs will start to set in the pan, and then the oven frittata will finish perfectly without getting rubbery and overcooked.

Asparagus Frittata

Serves 2

Frittatas are an easy way to eat your veggies. This frittata only requires four ingredients, so if you’re new to cooking with eggs – or just new to cooking – this is a great place to start.

It includes a whole bunch of asparagus for vitamins and antioxidants, although this Jamie Oliver recipe can be used to make any vegetable frittata, like butternut squash in the fall or roasted beets in the winter.

Pancetta Frittata Sandwich

Serves 3

Usually a frittata, like crustless quiche, is served plain. There might be a green salad on the side, but it tends to be an all-in-one meal.

However, you can actually turn any frittata into a sandwich that beats egg salad any day. Use this recipe as inspiration to build your own egg sandwich, especially when you have some leftover frittata taking up space in the fridge.

Leek & Mushroom Egg White Frittata

Serves 4

You can’t make a frittata without eggs, but you can make one without egg yolk.

This recipe uses a mix of egg whites and sour cream for a protein-packed frittata. And if you’re a meat eater, you could add cooked sausage or bacon to this vegetarian frittata for even more protein per serving.

Baked Frittata

Serves 4

Quiche and frittata seem similar at first glance, especially since they’re both made from baked eggs, but the key difference makes frittata the easier breakfast to cook. Quiche has an egg custard filling, which requires a specific ratio of eggs to dairy, whereas a frittata is simpler like a thick omelet.

Either one makes a great base for your favorite vegetables and seasoning blends. Once you get the hang of this simple frittata recipe, go ahead and get creative.

Spinach & Feta Mini Frittatas

Serves 24

Since most frittatas are baked in the oven, it makes sense to reach for a muffin pan to make mini versions.

These can be made in full-size muffin tin to get a dozen, or in a mini muffin pan to make bite-sized spinach frittatas with about 25 calories apiece. These are great to freeze for a quick snack. Grab them on your way out the door, and they’ll defrost in no time.

Shrimp Frittata with Tomato & Spinach

Serves 6

Since the eggs are the base of any frittata, most of them tend to lean towards breakfast with mix-ins like sausage, ham, or bacon. But there are other ways to add protein to a frittata.

OVER 100,000 PEOPLE HAVE USED MY COOKBOOK TO GET THE BODY THEY WANT EATING THE FOODS THEY LOVE. WILL YOU BE NEXT?

What if I told you that just about everything magazines and trainers “teach” you about dieting is wrong?

What if you could build muscle and lose fat eating “naughty” foods every week?

What if you didn’t have to suffer through low-carb dieting to get lean? In fact, what if you could eat all the carbs you wanted?

And what if you didn’t have to gorge yourself just to gain muscle and didn’t have to put on pounds and pounds of ugly fat, either?

In short, what if I told you that proper dieting--whether you want to maximize fat loss or muscle growth--is much simpler and more enjoyable than you’ve been led to believe?

Imagine eating delicious, filling meals every day...never feeling starved or stuffed...having great energy levels and workouts...and watching your body respond exactly as you desire, dropping fat or adding muscle each and every week.

And imagine finally understanding how proper dieting really works, never again falling for the BS, tricks, and gimmicks pushed by “gurus” and other shysters.

Well, I have good news.

All these “fantasies” can be a reality...if you know how to do a handful of “little” things correctly.

You see, when you know how to diet properly--and this doesn’t mean learning to eat boiled chicken and raw broccoli six times per day--getting lean and muscular becomes simple, convenient, and dare I say...enjoyable.

And this book will show you the way.

Made in USA

Where your supplements are made matters, because rules and regulations regarding quality and purity differ from country to country.

And if you want to ensure the supplements you’re swallowing every day are safe and effective, you want products produced in the USA.

That’s why all of our supplements are made in America in NSF-certified and FDA-inspected facilities that operate in accordance with the Current Good Manufacturing Practice (cGMP) regulations.

We pay a premium to work with the best manufacturers in the country, but it’s the only way we can also produce the best all-natural sports supplements.

Lab Tested

Did you know that studies have shown that many supplements contain dangerously high levels of toxins like lead, arsenic, and cadmium?

Not ours.

Every ingredient of every supplement we produce is tested for heavy metals, microbes, allergens, and other contaminants to ensure they meet the strict purity standards set by the FDA.

Naturally Sweetened & Flavored

While artificial sweeteners may not be as dangerous as some people claim, studies suggest that regular consumption of these chemicals may indeed be harmful to our health and that more research is needed.

That’s why all of our supplements are naturally sweetened and flavored and contain no artificial food dyes, fillers, or other unnecessary junk.

Science-Backed Ingredients & Doses

Every ingredient in every supplement we offer is backed by peer-reviewed scientific research, and every dose is included at clinically effective levels.

That means everything in our products is based on published scientific studies demonstrating real benefits, not the restrictions of razor-thin production budgets and gluttonous profit margins.

So, while everyone claims to have the best supplements on the market, we can back it up with real science and real numbers.
