your queries got answered

What’s the difference between a quiche and a frittata?

The main difference between quiche and frittata is that, quiche has a pastry crust, whereas frittata is crustless. Additionally, frittatas are typically firmer because they are cooked entirely on the stovetop, and finished in the oven, whereas, quiches contain more dairy, resulting in a creamier texture.

How do you make a frittata not soggy?

To prevent a soggy frittata, make sure you cook the vegetables thoroughly before adding the eggs so the excess moisture dries up. Additionally, cook the vegetable and egg mixture on low to medium flame and avoid overcrowding the pan. Let the mixture set slowly and evenly. By following these tips, you’ll prevent your frittata from getting soggy.

Why add milk to frittata?

We add milk to the frittata to make it creamier and to create a lighter and fluffier texture and more enjoyable to eat.

What’s healthier, frittata or omelette?

Frittatas and omelettes can both be healthy choices, but frittatas often contain more vegetables and may be a better choice due to their larger size, making them a great way to add extra nutrients to your meal. 

Is milk necessary for frittata?

Milk is not necessary for the frittata, but it can be added if desired to create a creamy texture. Depending on your preference, frittata can be successfully made with or without milk.

What is the best pan to make a frittata?

The best pan for making frittatas is generally a non-stick, oven-safe pan, preferably one with sloped sides and a wide diameter so that the frittata can be easily lifted out to serve.
