Fritatta or Omelette??

Always seen these recipes in my cookbooks on something called Fritatta, only when I thoroughly read the recipe then I realize that it just a simple omelette with additional ingredients in it. (I'm an Asian. So I usually just call it an omelette.)

Basically an unturned, not-folded omelette, a fritatta can be whipped up in a few minutes. You only need eggs and a oil to cook them. Anything can be added into this, so just use your imagination.

Basic Fritatta

    3 eggs
    2 tablespoons of cold water
    olive oil/butter
    leftovers from yesterday dinner
    wilting vegetables from fridge
  1. Beat together eggs and cold water until the yolks and whites are well-blended.
  2. In a frying pan, heat the oilve oil.
  3. Add the leftovers/vegetables and stir fry unitl it cooked or hot, pour in the eggs.
  4. Don't stir or anything, just let the bottom set and even brown a bit. When the top is just starting to set, flip it and cook the top in the pan.
The easiest way is to slide the fritatta onto a plate, put another plate upside down on top, flip it all over, then slide it back into the hot pan.
