Taste and TextureCheesy, Chewy, Herby


  • 1 large onion, thinly sliced (about 1 1/2 cups)
  • 1 each medium-size green, red, and yellow bell peppers, cored, seeded, and cut into julienne strips (about 2 cups)
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 8 eggs
  • 3 tablespoons milk
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme leaves
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
  • 1/3 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese


Cooking Instructions

  1. Sauté the onion and bell peppers in the olive oil in a large ovenproof skillet over medium heat until slightly caramelized, about 25 minutes. Add the garlic and cook an additional minute.

  2. Preheat the broiler.

  3. Whisk together the eggs, milk, thyme, salt, and pepper. Pour the mixture into the pan and cook over low heat until the bottom is set, 3 to 4 minutes. The top should still be moist and creamy. Sprinkle the eggs with the Parmesan.

  4. Place the skillet under the hot broiler and cook until golden and sizzling, about 2 minutes.

  5. Cut into wedges and serve the frittata hot from the skillet or at room temperature.


Broccoli: Omit the peppers and onion. Instead, sauté scallions and garlic in butter. Add 2 cups of broccoli florets. Season with red pepper flakes.

Mushroom: Omit the peppers. Cook the onion until translucent, add 1 cup sliced mushrooms, a splash of dry sherry, and a pinch of tarragon.

Um YES please! Frittatas are one of my favorite breakfasts, and they're so easy to make. Plus this recipe sounds like a great way to use up some of those veggies from the garden.

I hadn't tried a frittata before and my opinion after this one is positive. This would be a good breakfast when company is over.

I thought this was pretty good! I actually liked the sweetness of the peppers. I did add a little hot sauce on the side, but found I didn't need much because I enjoyed the dish as is.

Next time less green peppers and perhaps some spicy heat. Was too sweet (peppers) and not enough heat flavor. Scallions? Lil habanero pepper?

I thought it was good, but I agree with Nina Cabina; this recipe could have used a bit more spice.

This frittata was the perfect morning bite. I loved the addition of all the vegetables and the texture was just right. I think it is a great recipe to make ahead and reheat throughout the week.

This was not bad or good. It was very mediocre. I love eggs for breakfast and this could have used a little more flavor. Maybe it's just because I'm addicted to hot sauce.
