Frittata + Quiche = Friche?

DSC03691I have never truly understood the difference between Frittata and Quiche. Apparently Quiche has a crust and Frittata does not. Quiche is broiled in oven while Frittata is made on stove top but then doesn’t that make Frittata an omelet? Or is Frittata just a fancy way of saying omelet? Whatever it is, I decided to make a twist of Frittata and Quiche, hence I am calling this recipe, Friche!


You will need:

  1. 7-8 eggs
  2. Handful of baby spinach
  3. Kielbasa sausages sliced into pieces
  4. 1 cup cherry tomatoes halves
  5. 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  6. Salt and pepper
  7. Butter to line your baking dish


Pre – heat oven to 375 degrees. Mix all of the ingredients together (except for butter).  Line your baking dish with butter, just rub a butter stick against the wall of the dish. Pour the mixture into the baking dish and bake it to 375 degrees for approximately 30 minutes or until the egg solidifies. You can check this by poking a knife in the middle section. If the knife comes out clean, then it is done. Now all you have to do its enjoy 🙂


One thing I learned while making this Frittata-ish Quiche, Friche is that you need to cook it in a proper pie dish otherwise, the food kind of tends to stick to the dish. I didn’t have a pie dish so I use my regular baking pan but it didn’t work very well. Also, if you are using less than 7 eggs, then make sure you use a pan that is smaller in diameter otherwise your Friche becomes very thin. But if you like that way, go ahead!DSC03689


Let me know if you tried this recipe or if you know the exact difference between Frittata and Quiche.
