Egg Dish Differences 101

I keep coming across the question: "what is the difference between a strata, quiche, frittata, etc.?"

So, I did a little research, and here goes....

First you have your basic scrambled eggs and then you can graduate to an omelette you fold and such. But then you can get fancier yet with all those eggs....

Quiche: French savory pastry, so this involves some sort of a pie crust. Eggs, and whatever else on top and is baked in the oven.

Frittata: Italian casserole which can have eggs, meat, noodles, cheese, etc. and normally cooked on a stove top, but doesn't have to be.

Strata: American layered casserole typically with milk, cheese, meat, bread or potatoes maybe, etc.

So, hopefully that helps in correctly labeling your recipes. I know I need to go back through mine now and change one or two.

Happy egg eating!
