Wild West FrittataPrint Recipe
- 1 small onion sliced into thin strips
- 10 small multi-colored mini bell peppers, cut in half and seeds removed
- 4 strips of bacon cut in half and roughly torn in pieces
- 3 eggs
- 1 tbsp milk
- 1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
- 1 tbsp dried cilantro
- 1 tsp dried chili flakes
- salt & pepper
- 1 oz shredded Kaseri cheese
Heat the olive oil in a small iron cast pan and add the onions and halved peppers to cook down for about 8-10 minutes, it should spent the first half cooking down on high heat and then lower the stove to medium heat. While that cooks down, pre-heat the oven to 500 F.
Once the onions and peppers are tender, add the bacon, chili flakes, cilantro, salt and pepper, and keep the heat on medium as it cooks down for another 10 minutes. Stir a few times throughout the cooking process and prep the oven by turning the broiler on high.
In a separate bowl, beat the three eggs with the tbsp of milk and add a dash of salt and pepper.
Remove the iron cast from the heat and even out the onion and pepper mix before pouring the whisked eggs over the veggies so that they are nicely covered. Top with 1 oz of the cheese and place in the oven for 5-10 minutes until the cheese is melted and bubbly and the eggs are cooked through. Serve immediately.
If your planning on going a a few miles hike today, or just feel like being a cowboy, this is the way you’ll want to start your day. Frittatas are one of my favorite things to make, not only because it a hearty and healthy way to start your day, but its also a great way to use up some leftover veggies you might have laying around or eggs that need to be consumed– soon. A huge bonus to them, are since they set nicely in the oven, they can also be wrapped up and packed for when your riding your horse into the sunset.
This frittata has a pepper, onion and olive oil base before getting hit with strands of bacon and smoke paprika. It then get covered in a egg and milk mixture and popped into the oven. A few minutes before its taken out, hit the top with some cheese if you really want to be decadent and if your taking it on the go, it pairs nicely with any local beer you can get your hands on.
