Q: How do I refresh my dry frittata after I have overcooked it?

Editor: You aren’t the first person to overcook a frittata, nor will you be the last, but there are a few ways to remedy that small blip.

Since it’s primarily water that you’ve lost, you’ve got to add it back in. You do this by steam-frying it. Remove the frittata from the skillet and cut it into wedges large enough to fit in a skillet with a cover. Add a drizzle of olive oil to the pan, and once warm, add the frittata wedges. Once you hear a sizzle, add a splash of water and cover. Cook your frittata a few minutes, over medium-low heat. The steam that forms in the covered pan will plump your frittata right back up. Remove the cover and continue to cook until all the water has evaporated.

Feeling like the frittata is still dry? This is when I break out my favorite jarred marinara and heat it up to serve alongside the frittata.
