Ground Beef Basil and Tomato Frittata

Ground Beef Basil and Tomato Frittata is another easy frittata recipe that you can cook for breakfast or lunch. As the name suggests, this recipe requires ground beef, basil, and tomato slices. I enjoy eating this egg dish with a slice of toasted bread and some tomato ketchup.

You will need a conventional oven to prepare this dish. If you don’t have an oven at home, you can use a turbo broiler, but make sure that you cover the top with aluminum foil to prevent it from being burnt.

The basil and tomato make this dish taste better. I cannot recommend any substitute for them. However, you can use ground pork, ground chicken, or ground turkey to replace the beef.

    Quite enjoyable.
    I added diced onion and garlic while frying the meat, and unfortunately only dried basil was available, but that was compensated by some grated cheese on top.
    It’s very easy to undersalt it.

  2. Love this recipe. I will try it this weekend and hopefully I can get near the way you cook it. Thanks and chow!
