Spinach and peppers fritatta - 2 ways

Spinach fritatta is one of those recipes that allow you to get all the components of a healthy meal rolled up into one. Let it cool off and take it to work or have it warm while the cheese is still soft and melting.


T0 make 2 servings of spinach and pepper fritatta you need:
1 small bell pepper, cubed
1 cup spinach, sliced
1 green onion, sliced
1 tbsp butter
3 whole small or medium eggs
2 oz sharp cheddar cheese


Start by heating up the butter in a pan and cooking the onion, pepper and spinach. When they are all soft you can decide whether to cook your fritatta over the stove or in the oven. If you choose to cook it over the stove, mix the cooked vegetables with the eggs and scramble well. Pour back in the pan and cook like an omelet. When it's done, grate the cheese on top. It always looks good to cut up the omelet like pizza and enjoy one piece at a time.


If you choose to cook it in the oven, more like a casserole, place the vegetables on the bottom, follow with the scrambled eggs and place the cheese on top. Cook in an oven heated to 400F (200C) for 25 minutes.

I think this recipe shows clearly that the same ingredients can look and taste differently because you prepared them differently. Give it a try and let me know!
