It’s as simple as can be, and you can add whatever you have on hand. I never go out and buy anything special for this, except eggs of course!
Here’s what you’ll need to serve 4-6 people:
1/2 cup cream or milk
salt and pepper to taste
1/4 t crushed red pepper flakes
2 T oil
1/2 cup chopped bell peppers (any color, although I prefer green)
1/2 cup chopped mushrooms
1/2 cup chopped onions
1 green chilli, finely chopped
1/2-1 cup shredded cheese
In a medium sized bowl whisk together the eggs, cream/milk and seasoning.
In a large oven proof frying pan heat the oil and sauce the peppers, mushrooms, onions and green chilli for a few minutes, until they’re cooked charred around the edges. Spread them out evenly around the pan and pour over the egg mixture, making sure to spread it out evenly.
Cook on a medium heat, loosening the edges with a spatula so the edges don’t stick.
Once the egg is almost cooked through sprinkle over the cheese, adding as much as you like, and place the frying pan under the broiler in your oven till the frittata is bubbling and fluffy and the cheese is melted.
Enjoy with some toasted bread or english muffins! This is great to make for a large group of people and should be featured on your next brunch/breakfast table!
You can add any vegetables you like, and add any type of meat as well. Customise away!
