Festive Frittata

EIMG_3715

While traditional Italian frittata is skillet fried similar to an omelette, this version is baked in a shallow casserole dish. Since this recipe includes bread, baking allows time for the liquid to be absorbed. With some garnishing on top, the resulting presentation is both festive and easy to serve.
