I made it in a 10" skillet, and used red, orange and yellow bell peppers, no green. Came together quickly and reheated great!

I just used eggs with no egg substitute. Also added some cheddar cheese to flavor it up. While I love colored peppers, budget won't allow it, so I just used green peppers. The only time I purchase colored peppers is when I can catch them on sale. They would be good in this dish.

Good flavour for this frittata. Next time I would use all eggs and no egg substitute. I found it took much longer than stated however.
