Can I make a frittata and reheat it?

I am making brunch today and have two things that need to go in the oven. Can I make the frittata ahead of time, keep it warm and then reheat it a little?

    If it's not too late to answer, I would say Yes, IF it's more of a spanish-tortilla-style sturdy thing. If it's a more delicate one I'd say it would lose too much numminess.

      Maybe too late but... Yes, I find that frittata's generally improve in flavor after they've had a chance to sit for a while, so I'd say definitely. Plus, I generally prefer them room temperature or only somewhat warmed anyway, not piping hot-- so giving it a chance to rest while something else bakes works very well!

        I actually prefer to serve them at room temperature - you can make ahead and just keep it covered out on the counter - if that helps at all.

          I have to agree that for the most part if you don't serve it right away then room temp is good. For the last two days I've made torilla patata. I had one potato that was sitting on the counter and thought this was a good way to use it up.

            I love frittata leftovers, so I say you can definitely make the frittata ahead.

              I always eat leftover frittata because my husband doen't like them and I'm not about to eat an entire frittata in one sitting. It's quite tasty.
