Broccoli & Ham Frittata --need advice

Hi All, I'm making a frittata for my work and I need help figuring out food safety issues. I plan on baking it in the morning at 5am and will not be serving it until 10am. I'll probably get in to work around 6am- 6:30am and was just going to keep it in an insulated bag. Would this be alright? I'm trying to avoid having to refrigerate it because we only have a microwave to heat it up. What would be the best for this situation? I don't want to get people sick. Thanks in advance!

  1. Yes, you can do that. The frittata will be cooked; this dish is good at room temp as well so it won't hurt not to put it in the fridge.

    1. You'll be fine, provided the eggs are set. This is much better at room temp anyway! Good luck!

      1. My only advice would be to let it come to room temp before putting it in insulated bag. The heat and steam may make it much more mushy than you like if you put it in hot.

        1. p.s., you might consider asparagus instead...? Just a thought.

            I was going to say the same. Love ham and asparagus together.
