1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Heat a drizzle of
oil in a large ovenproof skillet (cast iron is
ideal) and set over medium-high heat. If
you have any ingredients that need to be
precooked, sauté them in the pan for a
few minutes until they’re tender or cooked
through. If you’re using pre-cooked
leftover meat or veggies, heat them in the
skillet, spreading them evenly.
2. In a bowl, whisk together the eggs, milk, cheese, salt and pepper. If you have leftover cooked pasta, stir it into the egg mixture too.
3. Pour the eggs over the ingredients in the pan, turn the heat down to mediumlow and cook for 5–8 minutes, until the bottom is set.
4. Sprinkle the frittata with extra cheese if you like, and transfer the skillet to the oven. Bake for 10 –15 more minutes, until the top is set and golden. Serve hot or cold.
