How to Make Cheesy Italian Frittata

  1. Begin by heating oil in a large non-stick pan on medium flame.
  2. When the oil has heated, add onion and zucchini and sauté them for 2 minutes or until the onion is fragrant and zucchini soft.
  3. Add diced meat pieces in the pan and cook for 2 more minutes.

  7. Cover and broil the eggs on low flame for 4-5 minutes or until the eggs are cooked and the cheese is slightly brown.
