How to Make a Traditional Frittata

To achieve a creamy, custard like keto frittata, we use a combination of cooking our egg mixture on the stove top and in the oven under broiler. This method creates an incredible texture. Just be careful you don’t burn the frittata. Keep a watchful eye on the casserole when it’s under the broiler so it doesn’t burn. Burnt eggs are hard to stomach!

Frittata Tips

  • Full Fat Dairy – Use full fat dairy to create a creamy frittata. Use heavy cream, sour cream, full fat yogurts and cheeses.
  • Pre Cook vegetables – Cook your vegetables and proteins before you add it to the frittata. The eggs don’t take long to cook and set, so to keep from over cooking the eggs, you need to pre cook your vegetables and protein.
  • Don’t Overcook – It’s easy to burn your frittata when it’s under the broil. Stay by it’s side and watch it as it puffs up. Overcooking the frittata can make it unappealing.
