What's the difference between an quiche and a frittata?
A quiche is made by filling a savory quiche dough (or puff pastry dough) with savory ingredients.
On the other hand a frittata is crustless. It looks more like an omelette (but then without the folding), which in this recipe is made in the oven.
Therefor it's an ideal recipe if you want to eat gluten-free or low carb.
How do you serve this frittata?
Frittata is served warm. And for a cozy lunch add a delicious salad and a crispy fresh baguette.
What to do with left overs?
You don't have to throw it away, for sure. You can store it and eat it reheated or cold. But always make sure, whichever way you choose to store your leftovers, to make sure you cool down your frittata quick and put it in an airtight container of bag.
You can store the frittata up to 2 days in the refrigerator. You can also freeze the leftover frittata up to 2 months. You just have to thaw it and eat it. By using these storage techniques you can also prepare this frittata in advance so you'll only have to warm it before serving lunch.
Tip If you don't want to eat the same frittata twice in a row, you can also chop it finely and mix it with mayonaise (and curry) to get a delicious egg salad which you can eat on a sandwich.
