Frittata is an extra fancy term for one of the simplest egg dishes you can make. You can think of them as an unfolded omelet, but fluffier, or a crustless quiche, but with the less custardy filling. Each of these options will hit that sweet spot, and are perfect to make in advance.

One of my favorite ways to have eggs is poached in a tomato base, with plenty of spice and seasoning. Shakshuka originated in North Africa, but these days you can find so many flavor variations that involve this method of baking eggs.

  1. So many of these sound good! I love how versatile eggs are. Sometimes I’ll just make a frittata for dinner! I’ve only recently discovered shakshuka and have not tried to make it myself yet but now might be a good time to experiment with one of these recipes.

  2. I’m a savory breakfast gal 99% of the time. I love eggs for breakfast, and those egg muffins look delicious! Also, I love how versatile those can be, swapping out ingredients as one pleases.
