Frittata rolls

Let’s roll into this holiday weekend with one (…or lots!!) of these scrumptious and easy-to-make stuffed frittata rolls.

This Italian-style appetizer is a great finger food addition to your Fourth of July party … or any brunch or dinner really. 

Frittata rolls



This recipe is fancy and festive. It’s quick, easy and so versatile. You can really go crazy with the filling and find your best combination. 

Think: cream cheese/salmon, prosciutto/mozzarella/arugula, ham/cream cheese… Your imagination is the only limit!

Frittata Roll Ups



Today I stuffed mine with a simple and delicate ricotta cheese and sautéed baby spinach. AND best of all, I used my favorite Eggland’s Best eggs for the frittata. 

What I love the most about this brand is that it offers high quality eggs, from hens fed an all-vegetarian healthy diet which results in a better tasting and more nutritious eggs. 

Frittata Roll Ups



Compared to ordinary eggs, EB eggs have 

– ten times more vitamin E (an antioxidant that helps to protect body cells and tissues in the heart, skin, joint), 

– six times more vitamin D (aids the body’s absorption of calcium, which is essential in helping to form and maintain strong bones and muscle strength),

– 25% less saturated fat (to maintain healthy cholesterol levels and cardiovascular functions), 

– more than double the Omega 3 fatty acids (beneficial for heart health, brain and eye function), and vitamin B12 (important for healthy protein metabolism, energy production, cognitive, cardiovascular, and nervous system health). 

Can’t get any better than this!! 

Frittata Roll Ups


Now let’s talk recipe for a minute. The idea is to make a thin frittata (much thinner than you would normally). And you can either bake it, like I did here in a rectangular baking sheet (you can adjust the amount of eggs based on the size of your pan). OR, you can cook on your stove top using a large non stick frying pan. This method is quicker (only takes few minutes to cook) and quite simple (no trouble flipping the frittata when it’s this thin). Both methods work great … I only chose the baking because the rectangular baking sheet gives me more regular (and picture perfect) rolls. The eye needs its part in my case!
