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

Preparation

  • Active

  • Ready In

  1. Position rack in upper third of oven; preheat broiler.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  • Make Ahead Tip: Let cool, cover and refrigerate for up to 1 day; serve cold.

It would be helpful to list the recipe for less than 6 servings I too came to this site to see what 1500 calorie meals looked like. Perhaps you could allow for single or two servings?

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

Red Pepper & Goat Cheese Frittata I added artichokes and mushrooms to the receipe. My husband and daughter loved it. Made two from the recipe. Will be making it again real soon. Give this receipe a thumbs up. Pros: Quick, easy beautiful presentation and tasty! Cons: It dissappeared too quickly

This dish made my brunch a HIT! The sweetness of the red bell peppers complimented by the saltiness of the goat cheese really make this dish. PS. anything with goat cheese is amazing! PPS. I used half egg yolks and whole eggs to make it even healthier. Pros: Goat cheese, simple preparation, loaded with yummy veggies Cons: Whole eggs

I love fritattas. I make them for breakfast quite often. They are delicious nutritious way of getting a whole lot of vitamins, vegetables and protein in one simple serving.

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.

Recipes for 6 are not helpful for me. It is easier to take a recipe for 1 and multiply by 2,3,4,5,or 6 etc Did not make this because it's not so easy to divide all ingredients by 6, 4, etc. Anonymous, Oakville, ON

I felt it was far too much oregano! That may just be me though... Amanda, MA
