The Easy Way To Tell When Your Frittata Is Done
A frittata is a tasty baked egg dish that is perfect for using up leftover vegetables and cheese in the fridge, as well as being an excellent source of protein and easy to prepare. However, as with any food baked in the oven, it can be hard to tell when frittata is fully cooked, but not overbaked; luckily, this simple trick can help you out.
When preparing a frittata in a cast iron pan, cook the egg mixture over low heat, then turn it up to low or medium-low heat and transfer the pan to the oven once the edges are set. Once the frittata is in the oven, you can determine its doneness by seeing how much the eggs jiggle when you gently shake the pan.
Your final frittata shouldn't be as jiggly as a crème brûlée, but not stiff and overcooked, either. The residual heat of the pan will continue to cook the frittata after it's been removed from the oven, so take the pan out when the top of the egg mixture has a slight jiggle, which will set into a perfectly creamy consistency once cooled.
