Our 8 Best Quiche and Frittata Recipes

Words by: Family Farm Team

What's the difference between a quiche and a frittata, anyway? When you break it down, there are some fairly simple distinctions between these two egg dishes. The quiche, which is technically a tart, originated in France. Quiches typically involve a pastry crust filled with a savory custard mixture made up of eggs and milk or cream, which all gets baked in an oven. Jet over to Italy and you'll find the frittata, which roughly translates to "fried." Unlike the quiche, frittatas are crustless and rarely made with milk or cream. Frittatas are cooked on the stovetop (sometimes finished in the oven) and typically served hot, whereas quiches are often eaten chilled. The bottom line? Both dishes are equally delicious, and wonderful vessels for a plethora of vegetables, cheeses, and meats. Below, you'll find a few of our very best quiche and frittata recipes with flavors and fillings that make every slice even more special.
