Frittatas might sound fancy but they're really just round omelets. They whip up fast so they're super for last-minute meals.


Olive oil

1 tbsp(s)

Raw egg(s)

4 large, beaten

Fat-free ricotta cheese


Fresh basil

cup(s), fresh, coarsely chopped


cup(s), fresh, coarsely chopped

Fresh parsley

cup(s), fresh, coarsely chopped

Uncooked Canadian bacon

3 oz, finely julienned

Black pepper

pinch, freshly ground, or to taste


  1. Heat oil in a 9-inch nonstick skillet over medium heat.
  2. Add remaining ingredients to hot skillet; stir occasionally with a wooden spoon until eggs are set and only the surface is runny, about 3 minutes. Flip frittata out onto a plate so browned side is face-up. Slide frittata back into skillet and cook until second side is slightly browned, about 3 minute more. (Note: If you do not want to flip the frittata, you can finish cooking it in the oven using an ovenproof skillet. Broil until slightly browned, about 2 to 3 minutes.)
  3. Slide frittata out of pan and cut into 8 wedges; serve immediately. Yields 2 wedges per serving.
