Frittata Freak

One of the things that makes you really start to feel chef-y is when you can make something delicious out of anything. Some basic recipes to practice flexing these muscles are things like soups, dressings, and the star of today Frittata.

Frittata is a meal preppers paradise because you can make it out of a few ingredients, or a lot of ingredients. You can utilize what is in your fridge already. It is one of our go to breakfast meal prep options, and I love creating something completely different every time I make it. Below I am going to detail how to make a basic frittata and then provide a recipe for my most recent frittata.

Basic Frittata


  • 6 eggs
  • 1/2 cup cottage cheese (or ricotta/basket cheese)
  • 1/2 cup other cheese (recommend something melty)
  • 1/2 veg or meat (or combo)
    • Consider pre cooking select vegs and meat, as the cooking process is not long to fully cook uncooked items. For veg can also cut very small to avoid pre cooking
  • salt, pepper, parsley


  1. Grease a pie plate and set oven to 375
  2. Crack and beat eggs into a bowl, beat in cottage cheese, stir in meats or veg, and additional cheese.
  3. Season with salt, pepper, and parsley
  4. Bake at 375 for 20-30 minutes until slightly golden and no jiggle in the center when shook
