This stir-and-bake frittata recipe is so easy to make, its a no-brainer. Best part about making frittata is that you can throw in whatEver you have left in your fridge and it will turn out delicious. I’m on my Whole30 diet, so have not added cheese which is a main part of frittatas. I don’t like greasy melted cheese anyway, so this works great for me and for my diet. 🙂

In India this is how we make omelet, minus bell peppers and broccoli. Also, we make it on stove-top instead of the oven. When Not on a diet, we serve it sandwiched between 2 delicious slices of white bread toasted with butter on stove-top and we call this awesomeness “bread-omelet”. Its a very popular street food across India.

I have added a dash of paprika and turmeric coz of my Indian roots, I just love the flavor combination of eggs+turmeric+paprika. That’s a threesome made in heaven. :p

You can make these in a muffin tray for easy sharing. I cut the pie into 4 slices, ate one for my breakfast and froze the rest for later. I wrapped each slice individually in parchment paper and put them all in a ziplock bag. Voila, breakfast for 3 more days. I would just take thaw them the night before in refrigerator and throw them in toaster oven in the morning to warm up. Microwaving will make them soggy.

Now, lets dive into the kitchen to make some Frittatas…
