If you love easy frittata recipes, you have to check out this recipe for Avocado and Feta Frittata.

You can think of a frittata as the Italian version of the omelette. It’s open-faced and not folded over, like a conventional omelette is.

Unlike an omelette, the egg mixture is cooked over a very low heat until the underside is set but the top is still runny.

Then the egg mixture is flipped over or set under a broiler to cook the top layer. It’s a bit tricky, but learning to make an avocado frittata is worth it!

Try it out for Mother's Day or another brunch time get together.
