Notes

You can start cooking this frittata in an oiled ovenproof frying pan on the stove top and finish it under the grill (broiler). To make ahead, store cooled frittata, covered, in the fridge for up to 2 days. The frittata can be eaten warm or at room temperature. To reheat frittata, microwave on HIGH (100%), in batches, for about 1 minute.
