Tips: to flip the frittata upside down, remove the pan from the heat. Cover with a lid or a plate wide enough to cover the circumference of the pan. Place one hand on the top of the plate or lid. With the other hand hold the handle of the pan tightly. Invert the plate/lid and pan together, so that the frittata is on the plate. Slide the frittata back into the pan.
