Tips and Troubleshooting
For easier flipping:
- chop all your veggies well. This will make your omelette / frittata easier to flip
- use a large non-stick pan and two spatulas to flip.
- If you’re having trouble, instead of splitting the thin frittata to two, split it to four sections
If you’re making a large batch or don’t want to flip, turn the heat to low and use a lid to cover and cook until fully cooked. Then transfer the frittata, by cutting into sections, to a plate.
If there are some flavour bits left after sauteeing the veggies, carefully clean them with a wet paper towel to remove them before pouring the egg mixture.
To store, let the thin frittata pieces cool completely, and put them in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 4 days.
To reheat, you can:
Cook it on a pan on medium low heat for 2 minutes on each side, or microwave on medium for 30 – 80 seconds.
