 The frittata cooked in oven, not fried

Tradition says that the frittata should be fried in a pan with lots of butter and oil. I find that this way of cooking the frittata makes it very heavy and greasy, so I prefer to put it in the oven by replacing the butter with the baking paper. Despite this, in this recipe I used a little bit of butter and oil because the combination with the truffle is great.

In this way, the frittata is tasty but much less greasy. Do not dry because the eggs are naturally fat enough. You retain all of the flavors of the ingredients. It cooks evenly on both sides and avoids the delicate operation of the “jump” in the pan to “turn the frittata” – that here is also a popular saying that means to manipulate reality for its own benefit – operation that has often as a result that the frittata break down on the ground!
