If we’re ever not sure what to make for brunch with friends, it’s most likely we’ll end up making a frittata. The egg dish is so easy to make and yet always feels special. It also happens to be infinitely adaptable. Really, there’s just about no end to what vegetables, meat, and cheese you can add to it.

Beyond brunch, though, a frittata is a workhorse of a dish. It’s well-suited for a pack-and-go breakfast, a casual lunch, and even a weeknight dinner. Oh, and it doesn’t even matter what temperature you eat it at — hot, warm, room-temp, and cold are all tasty. Here are our most favorite ways to cook a frittata.
