Onion Frittata

Onion Frittata

By Nonna Letizia (Cristiano Bonino’s grandma).

You might enjoy this recipe on our tours in Piedmont and other regions, although this dish is not easy to find in restaurants (probably too simple!) and is more typical when served in a quick sandwich for your family, as Nonna Letizia used to do during her travel to Trentino region! 


Ingredients for 4 people:

  • 1 tsp of EVOO
  • 1 medium onion
  • 6 eggs



  • Chop the onion and cook with EVOO in a nonstick pan until soft
  • When onion is cooked, remove the excess EVOO
  • Beat the eggs and then add the cooked onion, mixing thoroughly
  • Using the same pan, pour in the mixture and cover with a flat lid
  • Cook over a medium flame for about 5 minutes
  • When you can see that the top is almost cooked, flip the frittata over using the flat lid as a spatula of sorts
  • Cook for an additional 3 minutes
  • Pat the frittata dry and eat warm or allow it to cool and slice for a nice sandwich


Buon appetito!​
