Fast & Easy Dinner: Red Pepper and Goat Cheese Frittata

Today is world egg day, and to celebrate we should have eggs for dinner. For some crazy reason, the majority of Americans associate eggs with breakfast, but the incredible, edible egg can make a delicious dinner dish.

For example, the fashionable Italian frittata is a scrumptious meal. In this variation, goat cheese adds a delicate creaminess that pairs perfectly with the snap of the red pepper. To honor the egg, get the recipe and

Red Pepper and Goat Cheese Frittata

Ingredients

  1. 8 large eggs
  2. 2 tablespoons finely chopped fresh oregano
  3. 1/2 teaspoon salt
  4. 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
  5. 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  6. 1 cup sliced red bell pepper
  7. 1 bunch scallions, trimmed and sliced
  8. 1/2 cup crumbled goat cheese

Directions

  1. Position rack in upper third of oven; preheat broiler.
  2. Whisk eggs, oregano, salt and pepper in a medium bowl.
  3. Heat oil in a large, ovenproof, nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add bell pepper and scallions and cook, stirring constantly, until the scallions are just wilted, 30 seconds to 1 minute.
  4. Pour the egg mixture over the vegetables and cook, lifting the edges of the frittata to allow the uncooked egg to flow underneath, until the bottom is light golden, 2 to 3 minutes.
  5. Dot the top of the frittata with cheese, transfer the pan to the oven and broil until puffy and lightly golden on top, 2 to 3 minutes. Let rest for about 3 minutes before serving. Serve hot or cold.

Serves 6.

This is sooooooo good!! Just made it for breakfast and had thought of eating only 1/6, but talked myself into eating another 1/6 so in all I ate 2/3. After that I was so full that I didn't want to think about food and...I didn't eat or drink anything else with it - definitely very filling! One small variation - I did not put any oregano, instead used 1 tsp dry basil.

Ok I made it - and it was wonderful!!! Warning though it tastes good and its very light so its really easy to eat more than just 1/6. My hubby and I split it (he 2/3s and me a 1/3) with a small green salad on the side. Next time I might try with fresh basil and arugula instead of oregano. I love basil, and arugula would give it that nutty something extra that oregano hints at.

i think that one of the reasons that i know that i can't go vegan right now is my need to have eggs all the time. in any event, i used to think that it was really hard to make a frittata so i was always really excited to get one when i went out to eat, but i've realized that it's just as easy as making any number of things. i love the add-ins that you've included in this recipe - i've never added goat cheese to one of mine, but you're right - it adds a nice texture and flavor combination to it all.
