Author Notes: I made this frittata in celebration of Easter and of spring using organic eggs, baby artichokes and some leftover roasted baby sweet tricolor bell peppers. —cucina di mammina
6 to 8
whole large organic eggs
fresh young vidalia onion with green tops included (thinly chopped)
leftover roasted sweet baby red, yellow and orange peppers (about 1/4 to 1/2 cup, chopped)
packet steamed or parboiled fresh or frozen baby artichokes, quartered (about 3/4 cup or so)
grated parmigiano-reggiano or romano cheese
sea salt and pepper to taste
- For the roasted baby peppers: I wash these baby peppers, split them in half and remove the seeds and white veining; drizzle with olive oil, season with salt and pepper and roast in the oven under the broiler until they are soft and the skin begins to blacken a bit. Allow to cool.
- In a large bowl, crack all the eggs and season with salt and pepper to taste; add in a good handful of grated cheese and blend lightly to just break up the eggs a bit. Set aside.
- n a large deep non-stick oven-proof skillet; drizzle some olive oil and place on medium heat; add in the chopped onion and onion greens and sauté until soft and aromatic.
- Add in the parboiled artichoke quarters and season lightly with salt and pepper; sauté on medium heat stirring gently for about 5 to 8 minutes or so, until the artichokes have softened and become flavorful.
- Add in the roasted and chopped sweet bell peppers and sauté or only a minute or two.
- Add in the egg mixture and stir lightly to combine the vegetables into the egg mixture; cook this on medium heat until the sides of the cooking mixture begins to separate from the sides of the skillet.
- Place skillet with the frittata into a preheated oven under the broiler and cook until the top is lightly golden brown and the eggs are set and cooked through.
- Remove carefully and allow to cool a bit; serve immediately with freshly toasted rustic country bread or ciabatta.
- Note: Pairs perfectly with crisply toasted slices of my pane d' altamura rustic italian bread. See recipe for this bread in my collection on Food52.
