Calico Pepper Frittata Recipe

Her garden-fresh frittata has all-day appeal, says Loretta Kelcinski, Kunkletown, Pennsylvania. “I serve it for breakfast, brunch, lunch or dinner with crispy Italian bread. It's made in a skillet, so there's no need to heat up the oven.”
TOTAL TIME: Prep/Total Time: 30 min. YIELD:4 servings


  • 1 medium green pepper, chopped
  • 1 medium sweet red pepper, chopped
  • 1 jalapeno pepper, seeded and chopped
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 5 eggs
  • 1-1/4 cups egg substitute
  • 1 tablespoon grated Romano cheese
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper


  • 1. In a large nonstick skillet, saute peppers, onion and garlic in oil until crisp-tender. In a large bowl, whisk eggs and egg substitute. Pour into the skillet. Sprinkle with cheese, salt and pepper.
  • 2. As the eggs set, lift edges, letting uncooked portion flow underneath. Cook until eggs are completely set, about 8-10 minutes. Cut into wedges. Yield: 4 servings.
Editor's Note: Wear disposable gloves when cutting hot peppers; the oils can burn skin. Avoid touching your face.
