The Italian version of an omelette.
Frittata, Omelet or Tortilla – You’ve probably had one of these delicious dishes. Basically, all three are fried with beaten eggs. The difference is in the details. A French omelet is folded in half. Frittatas and tortillas are served open. If ingredients other than eggs are used, such as bacon or vegetables, these are added directly to the egg count in the Italian (and Spanish) version. The omelet is filled before folding.
Despite all the small differences, they have one thing in common: whether hot or cold, for breakfast or dinner, all delicious dishes are filling, quick and easy to prepare and taste great.
