What is the Difference Between an Omelet and a Frittata?

The main difference between an omelet and a frittata lies in their preparation. Omelets are typically made by folding eggs around a filling, often cooked on a stovetop and served hot from the pan.

Frittatas, on the other hand, are more like crustless quiches; the ingredients are mixed with the eggs and cooked slowly, often finished in the oven (or in this case, an air fryer) to give a firmer texture. Frittatas are also typically thicker than omelets and can be served warm or at room temperature.

What is the Difference Between a Frittata and a Quiche?

While both frittata and quiche are egg-based dishes, the main distinction is that quiches are baked in a pastry crust and usually include cream or milk for a custard-like consistency.

Frittatas are crustless and rely on the eggs and fillings to form their structure, making them a lighter and often quicker option.

What Kind of Pan Should I Use for a Frittata?

When making a frittata in an air fryer, you should use a pan that is both oven-safe and fits comfortably within the air fryer basket. Non-stick ceramic or cast iron pans are great options as they can withstand high heat and help the frittata to cook evenly.

Make sure the pan you choose has a diameter small enough to allow air to circulate in the air fryer.

Ingredients

  • 6 large eggs
  • 1/4 cup milk or a dairy-free alternative
  • 1/2 cup diced bell pepper
  • 1/2 cup chopped broccoli florets
  • 1/4 cup sliced cherry tomatoes
  • 1/4 cup diced onion
  • 1/2 cup shredded cheese (optional)
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Fresh herbs for garnish (parsley or cilantro)
  • Olive oil or cooking spray (for the pan)

Step-by-Step Instructions

  1. In a large bowl, whisk together eggs, milk, salt, and pepper until well combined.
  2. Stir in the diced bell pepper, broccoli florets, cherry tomatoes, onion, and shredded cheese if using.
  3. Grease your air fryer-safe pan with olive oil or cooking spray.
  4. Pour the egg and vegetable mixture into the prepared pan.
  5. Preheat your air fryer to 360掳F (182掳C).
  6. Place the pan in the air fryer basket and cook for 15-20 minutes, or until the frittata is set and the top is golden brown.
  7. Use oven mitts to carefully remove the pan from the air fryer.
  8. Let the frittata cool for a few minutes, then garnish with fresh herbs.
  9. Slice, serve, and enjoy your garden-fresh frittata!
