Red Pepper and Mushroom Frittata

My Mother-in-Law has been staying with us so I've been making some nice things for lunch. I've posted about frittatas before, but this is a nice quick version. This frittata was a great hit and totally yummy.

  • 1.5 Red Peppers, fire roasted or roasted (and skinned - you can buy these or make them.
  • 2 green onions
  • 2 cups sliced mushrooms
  • 6-7 eggs
  • 200g grated cheese
I used a cast iron skillet for this. Put a bit of olive oil in your skillet and fry the mushrooms and chopped green onion over med heat. While this is happening, beat your eggs, grate the cheese and chop up the red peppers. Now whisk these together in a bowl. Once the mushies are done, put them in the egg mixture and put a bit more oil in the pan. Mix up the egg and little to distribute the mushies and pour into the (hot) pan. Let it cook over med heat until the bottom is browned (you can lift up the side gently to see this). Don't let it burn.

Now fire up your broiler and put it under there until the top's brown. Giv ethe pan a little jiggle to see if it's cooked through. If it's a bit jiggly, turn on the oven (it should be up at temperature because of the broiler, so no waiting) and leave it in there for about 4 mins or so. Take it from the oven, let it cool slightly and feed it to your hungry MIL.

That's what it looked like when it came out of the oven. Excuse filthy stovetop vents!
