A simple breakfast frittata filled with chopped red bell pepper and cheese then topped with fresh herbs. This red bell pepper frittata is simple, delicious, and perfect for weekend brunch.
  • 6 large eggs
  • ¼ cup heavy cream
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 cups chopped red bell pepper or other veggies
  • 1 cup shredded mozzarella
  • 2-3 sprigs of thyme
  • Chopped green onions
  • Fresh herbs, roughly torn
  1. Preheat the oven to 400F.
  2. In a mixing bowl, whisk together eggs, heavy cream, and salt until incorporated. Set aside for now.
  3. In a 10 inch oven safe skillet, place the diced red bell pepper in a single layer. Top with shredded cheese.
  4. Pour the egg mixture over the red bell pepper and cheese. Top with sprigs of thyme and chopped green onions.
  5. Bake the red bell pepper frittata for about 8-10 minutes until the eggs set. Check the readiness of the eggs by cutting a slit in the center. If the eggs are still runny, then bake for an additional few more minutes. If you want a crispier top, bake the frittata under broil for a few minutes until the top has browned.
  6. Allow the red bell pepper frittata to cool for several minutes. Top the frittata with roughly torn fresh herbs like mint, basil, or perilla.
  7. Slice the red bell pepper frittata into wedges and serve warm.
