Calico Pepper Frittata - Taste of Home Tuesday

It's #TasteofHomeTuesday again, and what an amazing one it is!  Not only are there 4 great recipes being shared this week by myself and my fellow Volunteer Field Editors, but you can also enter for a chance to win a Special Delivery Winter Box from Taste of Home! The box contains the Comfort Food Makeovers cookbook, cooking gadgets, recipe cards and some other fun items.  This is my second box, and it is the best mail day ever when they arrive!

I marked so many recipes in the cookbook, I had a hard time deciding which one to try first.  I know it's crazy, but I just started cooking eggs this year.  I didn't really care for them as a kid, and my son had a sensitivity when he was little, so I never made them for him either.  But I'm trying to expand my food world a bit, and this Calico Pepper Frittata looked like a great way to do it. It's packed with delicious veggies, and really is a fast dish once you do all the prep work.



The only change I made was to use red, yellow and orange peppers, no green bell peppers.  At the very end, the top was still a little underdone for my tastes, so I stuck it under the broiler for a bit.   I absolutely loved this.  I've been eating healthier for a few months now, and it was a great way to get in my veggies and protein.  It reheated great, and made a perfect on-the-go breakfast. You could really use any veggies you wanted, add bacon or sausage.  So versatile.  Thanks so much to Loretta K for sharing the recipe!

A big thank you as well to Taste of Home for generously offering the Winter Special Delivery Box for the #giveaway.   It is open to U.S. residents only, and the prize will be shipped directly from Taste of Home to the winner.  Good luck!

Calico Pepper Frittata

  • 5 large eggs
  • 1 1/4 cups egg substitute
  • 1 Tablespoon grated Romano Cheese
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 Tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 medium sweet red pepper, chopped
  • 1 medium green pepper, chopped- omitted, used yellow and orange
  • 1 jalapeno pepper, seeded and chopped
  • 1 onion, medium, chopped
  • 1 garlic clove, minced

In a large bowl, whisk the first five ingredients until blended. In a large nonstick skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat. Add peppers and onion; cook and stir until tender. Add garlic; cook 1 minute longer. Pour in egg mixture. Mixture should set immediately at edges. Cook, uncovered, 8-10 minutes or until eggs are completely set, pushing cooked portions toward the center and letting uncooked eggs flow underneath. Cut into wedges. Yield: 4 servings.
