17 Amazing Frittata Recipes

Frittatas are the brunch host's best friend—most of the prep work can be done ahead of time, they tend to be shockingly easy, and they have a fabulous visual and culinary effect. Perfect as they are for brunch, knowing how to make a decent frittata will also serve you well if you want to turn ho-hum leftovers into a whole new dinner.

The flavor combinations are pretty much endless—simple frittatas of just eggs and cheese are nothing to sneeze at, but concoctions full of vegetables and shrimp, toasted bread cubes, or cooked pasta are all worth exploring. They are, after all, pretty much an open-faced omelet. Find the perfect frittata for your next brunch—be it Easter, Mothers' Day, or Christmas morning—below.
