Making a frittata is much simpler than making an omelet. Omelets are “stuffed” with ingredients and usually only feed one person at a time so feeding a family of 4 can be somewhat time-consuming when making omelets. When making frittatas you mix the vegetables in the mixture and begin the cooking process on the stove but usually finish them in the oven and they usually are made to serve multiple people at one time making it a quicker tasty option for your family of 4 or more.
This Roasted Red Pepper and Feta Frittata are one of my personal favorites but there are so many things you can add to this recipe or variations you can do to make a great meal. If your kids don’t like red peppers you can substitute any vegetable or cheese for that matter.
How To Make Roasted Red Pepper and Feta Frittata:
Step One: Using an oven-safe skillet, preheat 1 TBSP of olive oil over medium heat on the stove.
Step Two: Add the following ingredients to the heated skillet, chopped basil, chopped roasted red pepper, chopped scallion, and 2 tsp of minced garlic and sauté for 30 seconds.
Step Three: In a large mixing bowl, add 6 eggs and the heavy whipping cream and combine thoroughly with a whisk.
Step Four: Combine the vegetables and egg mixture together in the heated skillet.
Step Five: Cook the egg vegetable mixture for several minutes or until the side of the eggs begin to become solid around the edges. Once the eggs begin to solidify add salt and pepper to taste and the feta cheese.
Step Six: Remove the skillet from the heat once the cheese has been added and put the skillet in the oven for 10 additional minutes. After 10 minutes remove it from the oven and let sit for some time (several minutes) before serving.
How Long Can I Store This Roasted Red Pepper and Feta Frittata?
Yes, you can freeze this frittata for up to 5 days in the refrigerator and up to 2 months in the freezer. Just pull it out of the freezer and let thaw completely before reheating it in the microwave or toaster oven.
What Are Some Variations I Can Do When Making This Frittata?
Some of my personal favorite additions to the frittata are various kinds of cheese such as gorgonzola, blue cheese, and cheddar cheese. Other items I like to add to spice it up are sun-dried tomatoes, olives, mushrooms, and bacon. One note, if you are adding fresh veggies you will want to sauté them before adding them to remove some of the water content so it does not impact the egg and cream balance.
