Keto Egg Frittata – Notes
Make it fluffy – Try to not skip the cream or milk, or the keto egg spinach frittata will become more dense and flat. Plus they are lower in carbs, and higher in fat.
Make it perfect – Avoid browning on the top and do not overcook the frittata or it will be too dry. Also, to avoid a soggy frittata, cook the veggies ahead of time, cook off any liquid they give off.
Do not overcook – When the center is just barely set and when you shake the pan it slightly jiggles, this is when it’s done.
Vegetables – Add vegetables like – spinach, zucchini, asparagus, broccoli, cauliflower, kale, bell peppers, mushrooms, onions.
Cheese – You can either mix all the cheese into the frittata or reserve a bit for the top.
Little taste change – You can also try with grilled onion, spinach, and bacon and make a perfect keto bacon egg cheese frittata.
