Note: Frittatas can be served hot or cold, so enjoy it warm for dinner and pack it cold for lunch. Get a grownup's help with this recipe, which requires using the oven/stove and chopping with a knife.

Prep time: 25 minutes

What you need:

Equipment and supplies

What to do:

  1. Set the oven to broil. Careful, this is a hot-hot setting!
  2. In a medium bowl, mix together eggs, salt, and pepper.
  3. Heat olive oil in the nonstick skillet over medium heat.
  4. Add sliced peppers and onions and cook until soft, about 8 minutes.
  5. Pour egg mixture over the peppers and onions and stir gently with a rubber spatula. Cook for 2-3 minutes, just until eggs begin to set on the bottom.
  6. Sprinkle with shredded cheese.
  7. Place pan into oven and broil for 3-4 minutes. The cheese should bubble and the frittata should be "set." That means it's not as liquid and jiggly as it started out.
  8. Remove pan from the oven and allow to cool for a minute before slicing into 6 wedges. Serve.
