This is also a very healthy snack, since it mainly contains eggs & mushrooms which have amazing health benefits.
Eggs are known to be "Super health foods" as they contain high quality protein, right kind of fat and the one of the foods that contain naturally occuring vitamin D.
Mushrooms is the new "Super food" after Broccoli and Blueberries.
Mushrooms are nutritional powerhouses packed with vitamins, minerals and disease-fighting antioxidants.Frittatas are often served at room temperature, making them perfect for brunches or larger groups.
"Frittata" is actually an Italian style omelet.
In the strictest sense, the difference boils down to a matter of folding in a filling rather than mixing it in.
Omelets traditionally have the egg mixture cooked and folded around a filling, while a frittata just mixes it all up, cooked in a mishmash combination all at once.
Frittatas are either cooked in a cast iron skillet or baked in an oven.
Mushroom frittata is one of my favorite, and in addition to mushrooms I also add black olives, oregano, garlic and red chilly flakes.
I also serve them a bit differently, ie by cutting them into large cake like slices so that you can easily hold and bite into them.
