Everything but the Kitchen Sink
Literally anything goes, with a frittata. They are a great way to “clean out your fridge”. From cooked meat, to any kind of vegetable or cheese. You can even put leftover taco meat, black beans and corn, to make a southwest frittata. With the base of your frittata being- eggs, sea salt, pepper, fresh or dried herbs, and a small amount of water, you can literally add almost anything you like.
