The frittata (Italian), is a omelette filled with vegetables and other things that can be eaten hot or cold; a great way to use leftovers or whatever is in your fridge,
You can vary the ingredients and quantities endlessly.
1/2 c milk
a little olive oil
onion, finely chopped.
capsicum, finely chopped
tomato, finely chopped
grated cheese such as gruyere, tasty cheddar or parmesan, or crumbled feta (optional)
In a frying pan, saute the onion in a little olive oil, stir in the capsicum other vegetables. Cook until slightly softened, stirring or shaking the pan. A lid or plate on top will help the vegetables cook faster. Season vegetables with salt and pepper.
Break the eggs into a bowl, add milk and whisk. Pour over the vegetables, making sure the egg mix reaches into all the gaps.
Sprinkle over cheese if using
Cook over medium heat for 4-5 minutes. You can put a lid over the pan, or, to get a crispy brown top, put the pan under a hot grill for 2-3 minutes. Some people turn the frittata on to a plate and slide it back into the pan to cook the other side.
This can also be cooked in an oven proof dish in the oven.
