Sweet Pepper Fritata

I can’t decide which I like best about this dish:  looking at it…or eating it.  I love that the red and green peppers make this fritata look festive for Christmas.   This is very easy to make and can be put together ahead of time and baked just before serving.   If you want to add a little extra protein, throw in some leftover cooked chicken or sausage.

Sweet Pepper FritataYum

1 small onion, chopped
3/4 cup chopped green pepper
3/4 cup chopped red pepper
2 Tablespoons butter
5 eggs, lightly beaten
1/2 cup chopped sun dried tomatoes
1 1/2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
1/2 teaspoon sea salt
1/4 teaspoon black pepper

Saute onion and peppers in the butter for 5-7 minutes or until veggies are tender and your family comes running into the kitchen to see what smells so good. Meanwhile, combine remaining ingredients in a bowl. Stir sauteed vegetables into egg mixture. Pour into an ungreased pie dish. Bake in a 350° oven for 25-30 minutes or until a knife inserted in the middle of the fritata comes out clean. Serves 6-8.

Which would you rather do – look at this, or eat it? Or maybe you could just really enjoy looking at it while you eat it. ;)

    Looks wonderful. My son wants pancakes for his 5th birthday dinner on Thurs. I wanted to fix something else too. This will be great.

    Oh yum! This is definitely something I would love to eat; however, no one else in my family will touch the brightly colored peppers, so I will just have to enjoy looking at the picture while I eat eggs and cheese with a side of raw yellow and orange peppers :)

    I think there’s a very good chance I’ll be serving that on Christmas morning. You know, a little protein to balance out the cinnamon rolls :)

    I love egg dishes like this – one dish meal! I wouldn’t use the green peppers though, they don’t ‘like me’ very much, if you get my drift. But the red peppers and cheese…yum! I’d probably add some dried parsley to give it some Christmas color!

    I will be looking at it AS I’m eating it! I wish I had read this before I made breakfast :o)
    Could this be made the night before then cooked in the morning? We loved the orange coolers, thank you for these wonderful recipes. I love your site!

    I just wanted to say this looks absolutely gorgeous. I have been following your website for a little while. We basically do the same things. I just needed some new ideas. We are on a 500 acre hay/cattle ranch. We raise rare chickens(you can’t find in any normal hatchery),goats for cheese and milk/meat(goat sausage is scrummy).We are going to do the milk heifer cow and AI for beef in the freezer.All 4 of our kids are avid hunters 3 girls and 1 boy ranging from 13-7.We homeschool and always have a large garden. We especially specialize in berry’s from Huckleberry to yellow raspberry’s.Thank you for all that you do and these wonderful recipes.Blessings

    This looks/sounds yummy but my husband can’t eat the peppers so I’ll have to settle for looking at it until I can make it for my friends.

    I would rather look at it, but my husband would for sure love to eat it. He loves omelets with peppers and onions. This is right up his alley.

    That does look and smell delicious! I think I’ll add some mushrooms to the sauteing veggies when I make this for Christmas brunch. Thanks for another incredible recipe! I love your blog. :)

    I make several of these every week, but I use less egg, no salt or W sauce, Pam instead of butter, and I also add spinach!

    This looks so good! My husband doesn’t care for peppers or tomatoes…I wonder if I could sneak this by him? If not, more for the rest of us. :)
