RED PEPPER, SPINACH & BASIL FRITTATA

May 18, 2018

 

For some reason, Frittatas have always slightly intimidated me. I have no clue why because they could not be easier to make. Thank god I've discovered this because they are SO delicious and make for a great one-pot meal. Frittatas are a perfect breakfast to make in advance and serve to a group because they look so pretty (especially in my mini cask-iron skillet)!

You can throw basically anything into a frittata, but I love this combo of rep pepper, spinach and basil.  The colors really pop and basil is my favorite!

 

Ingredients:

  • 2 eggs

  • 1/2 cup spinach

  • Half a red pepper, sliced

  • 2 tablespoons chopped basil

  • Salt & Pepper to taste

  • 1 teaspoon olive or avocado oil

 

Directions:

  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees

  • Crack eggs into a bowl, season with salt and pepper, and whisk until blended

  • In your skillet, heat oil and stir in peppers for 1-2 minutes

  • Add spinach to the skillet, season with salt and pepper, and cook until spinach is wilted

  • Spread vegetables across the pan, sprinkle half of basil onto vegetables, and then pour eggs on top

  • Sprinkle the remaining basil on top of eggs

  • Heat frittata over medium-low heat for about 3 minutes

  • Transfer frittata to the oven and heat for another 3 minutes, or until eggs are set

  • Cool and serve warm :)
