Ready In:




  • Heat 2 tablespoons of olive oil in a large frying pan over medium heat. Add the onions and cook for 4 minutes or until the onions are transparent. Add the sweet and hot pepper, and the tomatoes; cook for 2 to 3 minutes and let cool in the pan.
  • Crack the eggs into a bowl and beat in the cheese and salt. Add the cooled sautéed onions to the egg mixture and stir well. Wipe out the frying pan with a paper towel and add 1 teaspoon of olive oil to the pan. Heat the oil and then pour the egg mixture into the pan. Cover and cook for 5 or 6 minutes. When the liquid is set and the frittata moves easily in the pan, put a large plate over the pan and flip the frittata out onto the plate. Add another teaspoon of olive oil to the pan and carefully slip the frittata back in to cook the other side. Cover and cook for another 4 to 5 minutes.
  • If cooking in the oven, preheat to 325, dont cover and just place in oven for approx 20 min or desired doneness. I put extra parmesan over the top for the last 5 minutes.
  • Slide the frittata onto a serving platter; slice into wedges and serve immediately.

    Found this to be really bland. Mine needed to bake for 30 minutes for the center to set. Some cheddar cheese would have added more flavour I think.

    *Reviewed during ZWT4* I loved the mixed onions and capsicums together. I didn't add the hot pepper as my husband doesn't like them. I did add some pepper though. Great directions. I cooked mine in nthe oven and it set beautifully. Added some extra cheese on top

RECIPE SUBMITTED BY I am a middle aged foodie who has had the luxury of living all over the world except asia. Lived in or grew up in Nigeria, Kenya, Chicago, Russia,and haiti. born in New Zealand, brother born in Austria and many more. I have chronic medication resistant depression after 10 years on anti depressants that worked well but would stop working after a year or two, so now do my best at home living on disabilty. Not a bad thing, many have far worse health issues but i have been able to concentrate on food/cooking. My main passions are my cats. I live in the woods and somehow many starving strays or "dumps" have found the message babies who passed on left in the woods saying "suck lives at xxxx road. Most arrive sick and/or starving. Right now i have 2 that arrived with feline herpes and their attendant 2ndry bacterial infections but are doing beautifully. One old man who was going to be euthanized bc a lady who found him as a stray was moving and didnt want him...well he was a biter and rather grumpy who was in ICU for 3 days with a deadly gut infection which was fixed but he left with a diagnosis of diabetes. 3 months on insulin and finally diet controlled and he caught the herpes virus, respiratory symptom version and turned into a cuddler. Butterscotch must think "why didnt i figure out this cuddle stuff was great before i got sick!" Doing wonderfully even though he has bouts. he and the other kids are my babies. Sadly Butterscotch died of Lymphatic cancer in winter of 2008. A year before Big Boy arrived in my life, starving and weak. Full of affection he jumped into my arms and stayed, turns out he has FIV (cat hiv) so he needs to be watched closely. I love him dearly <img src="" border="0" alt="Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket"> <img src="" border="0" alt="Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket"> <img src=""> <img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket"> <img src=""> <img src="">
