Frittata is a type of baked omelette. It is easy and extremely versatile. This recipe uses bacon and peppers but you can combine a wide variety of ingredients including cheeses, vegetables, meats and herbs. It is an excellent way to use up leftovers (if you ever have any.)
Frittata with Bacon and Peppers
- 8 Free range eggs, large
- 100 mls Single cream
- 6 rashers Bacon, diced
- 1 Red Bell Pepper, diced
- 2 tbsp Olive Oil
- Salt and pepper
- Finely chopped herbs to taste, optional
Preheat the oven to 180°C . In a large bowl, beat the eggs with the cream, and salt and pepper (and herbs).
Heat the oil in a non-stick omelette or frying pan over a medium heat until hot. Cook the bacon and add the peppers halfway through.
Pour in the egg mixture and shake the pan a little to spread the ingredients evenly.
If you have a pan with a detachable handle, place it directly in the oven and remove the handle. If not, transfer the mixture to a shallow oven-safe dish and bake for 20 minutes.
