Basic Frittata Recipe

4 eggs
1/4 cup liquid, such as milk, tomato juice or broth
1/4 teaspoon dried thyme leaves or herb of your choice
Salt and pepper
1 cup filling of choice
2 teaspoons butter or vegetable oil 

In medium bowl, beat eggs, liquid, thyme, salt and pepper until blended. Add filling and mix well.



Melt butter in 6- to 8-inch nonstick omelet pan or skillet over medium heat. Pour in egg mixture and cook over low to medium heat until eggs are almost set, about 8 to 10 minutes.

Remove from heat. Cover and let stand until eggs are completely set and no visible liquid egg remains, 5 to 10 minutes. Cut into wedges. Yields 2 to 4 servings.
