  • Whisk eggs, oregano, salt and pepper in a medium bowl. 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.

  • Pour the egg mixture over the vegetables and cook, lifting the edges of the frittata so uncooked egg can flow underneath, until the bottom is light golden, 2 to 3 minutes. Dot the top 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.

Tips

Make Ahead Tip: Let cool, cover and refrigerate for up to 1 day; serve cold.

I would have to agree with the person who commented that recipes for 6 are not helpful. I came to this recipe from a link within an article called 'What does a 1 500 calorie day look like?' and found the info in that article very useful. Generally though people who are watching what they eat are doing it alone or perhaps as a couple. Read More

Great recipe! I didn't have scallions on hand so I used about 1/2 cup of sliced white onion and sauteed with the red pepper strips for a few minutes (just long enough to soften) before adding the egg mixture. I can't wait to try other variations! Pros: Quick easy and you can easily sub other ingredients you have on hand Cons: None Read More
