What is a Fruittata?
Fruittata is a popular Italian dish that features fresh fruits mixed with cheese and eggs. The name comes from the Italian word for fruit, frutta. Fruittata recipes can be as simple or complex as you like, but all require the same basic ingredients: fruit, cheese, and eggs.
One of the simplest frappes to make is based on diced fresh fruit and cottage cheese. You can sweeten it up with sugar or honey, or add in some spices like cinnamon or nutmeg for added flavor. For an extra treat, serve topped with whipped cream or crumbled bacon.

How to Make a Fruittata
There is no need to be a professional chef to make a delicious fruittata. This dish is easy and can be prepared in less than 30 minutes. All you need is some fresh fruit, eggs, cheese, and breadcrumbs.
To make the fruittata, begin by heating your oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Then slice your bread into thin pieces and spread them out on a baking sheet. Sprinkle each piece of bread with plenty of grated cheese and then press them down lightly with your hands. Bake for 5-7 minutes until the cheese has melted and the bread is lightly toasted.
Meanwhile, whisk together an egg and some water until just combined. Add the sliced fruit to the bowl and toss everything together gently until everything is coated in a thick syrup.
Once the bread is cooked, remove it from the oven and let it cool slightly before using it as a layer in the bottom of a pie dish or serving bowl. Pour the egg mixture over top of the breadcrumbs and then place in the preheated oven for 20-25 minutes until set (it may start to crust up on top). Serve warm or at room temperature!
