What’s The Difference Between A Frittata and a Quiche?

These two are very similar, however with a slight difference. A quiche is baked in a pastry crust (or pie crust) while a frittata has no crust and is baked directly in a dish. A frittata can sometimes also be known as a crustless quiche. Frittata usually includes ingredients mixed in a bowl with eggs. This can be cooked on the stove in a pan or baked in the oven.

Recipe Ingredients

The secret to making a beautiful frittata is arranging the vegetables in the dish beforehand. The egg custard is then poured overtop, once baked it creates a feast for the eyes. Below is a list of ingredients needed for the recipe, with the full instructions at the bottom of the post in the recipe card.

  • Eggs – You’ll need 8 large eggs for this recipe.
  • Vegetables – I used cherry tomatoes, mushrooms, and spinach in this frittata recipe. You can easily customize what veggies you add, just keep the egg and cream ratio the same.
  • Cheese – I used mozzarella cheese, but you can also use cheddar cheese or any other flavor you’d like.
  • Cream – This has a wonderfully thick and creamy consistency. Feel free to swap with canned coconut cream for a dairy-free version.
  • Spices – I used ground mustard, garlic powder, salt, and pepper.

Pro Tip: We find that buying a block of cheese can be more affordable than the pre-shredded versions. Typically, we like to purchase our cheese from Costco and slice it into smaller chunks freezing the extra for later. Then I shred it with the shredding blade of my rotary cheese grater.

How To Make A Mushroom Tomato Spinach Frittata

Here’s how to make this quick and easy vegetable frittata (or crustless quiche):

  1. Wash and Chop The Vegetables – Slice the tomatoes in half, dice the onion, and slice the mushrooms thin.
  2. Place Vegetables In A Pie Dish – Add the onion, tomatoes, and spinach into the dish and toss them together so that they’re evenly mixed. Next, arrange the sliced mushrooms on top evenly.
  3. Add Mozzarella Cheese – sprinkle it over top of the vegetables.
  4. Whisk The Eggs – Whisk the 8 large eggs in a medium bowl. Add the cream, ground mustard, garlic powder, salt, and pepper, and mix. Pour over top of the vegetables in a pie dish.
  5. Bake – Add the frittata to the oven and bake for 40 minutes at 350°F. Check for doneness by poking a toothpick in the center of the frittata.

Common Questions

What is a frittata?

A frittata is a mixture of vegetables or meat and cheese, mixed with cream and eggs. It’s

Can I use different cheese?

Medium and old cheddar cheese would work well for this frittata. You could also use white cheddar, and parmesan or feta cheese.

Is ground mustard the same as yellow mustard sauce?

While both are made from ground mustard seed, they are actually quite different. A jar of yellow mustard sauce also contains water, vinegar and other ingredients. I do not recommend adding it to the egg base as it will change the consistency of your frittata. But yellow mustard can be used as a sauce after the frittata is baked!

Can I add fresh garlic?

Yes, you could add minced raw garlic to the egg and cream mixture. Or sautee garlic with onions first and then add them to the baking dish with other vegetables.

Can I skip the cream?

A bit of cream or milk is required to create the right frittata consistency. The heavy cream can be substituted for half-and-half or milk. For a dairy-free option, almond milk, or canned coconut cream.

Recipe Baking Tips

Here are a few quick tips to make the baking process a breeze:

  • Spray The Pan First – An essential step, this will prevent the frittata from sticking to the pan.
  • Place The Pan On A Baking Sheet – Add the pan on the baking sheet directly to the oven. It helps to avoid spills while carrying the frittata and during the baking process.

Recommended Tools To Make This Recipe

Some tools I use and love to make this recipe:

  • Tart Dish – These handy baking dishes have beautiful wavy edges and can be used to make a tart or a frittata. We used a vintage glass tart dish for this recipe, but recommend this similar ceramic tart dish.
  • Pie Dish – A frittata can also easily be cooked in a pie dish. I love the quality of Staub pie dishes.
  • Mixing BowlsStainless steel mixing bowls make it easy to prep the egg custard and clean up.
  • Avocado Oil Spray – I love to use avocado oil spray in my recipes. It’s a high smoke point making it great for anything cooked in the oven.

Flavor Variations For Vegetable Frittata

We love spinach, mushrooms, and tomatoes in our vegetable frittata. But there are so many other ways to enjoy this easy breakfast style. Here are some more easy flavor variations to build your menu:

  • Kale – Instead of spinach you can try kale. Just chop it small into bite-size pieces.
  • Bell Peppers – Dice them and add in replacement of any vegetables.
  • Green Onions – An easy addition to any frittata, quiche or omelet.
  • Sweet Potato – Slice them thin in a mandolin slicer or shred them so they’ll cook faster.
  • Ham – An easy addition. Chop into bite-size pieces first.
  • Bacon – Cook in a skillet and slice small, then add to the frittata.
  • Cheddar Cheese – Any cheese you prefer will work here, including cheddar cheese.

Storage Tips

This recipe is easy to make in the morning for a quick brunch idea to serve the family.

  • To Store – Add frittata leftovers to the fridge in an airtight container for up to a week.
  • To Reheat – This recipe can be heated in the oven at 350°F or in the microwave.
  • To Freeze – Yes, this recipe can be stored in the freezer! First, wrap each serving individually in plastic wrap or tightly inside parchment paper. Then place each serving inside a large Ziploc freezer bag. Seal tightly and remove excess air. This will keep in the freezer for up to 3 months.

Next time I will use a more flavorful cheese because the mozzarella is not very flavorful and I presently cannot have much salt to add flavor. The coconut cream (and maybe the mozzarella) I think maybe makes a creamy taste, though, which was good. I like that this is healthy and will make again with different veggies and cheese.
