Author Notes

Fritattas are my favorite thing to make. So versatile! You can add just about anything to some beaten eggs with cheese, bake it, and call it breakfast, lunch or dinner!!! This one evolved out of what I had in the fridge. The optional cilantro sour cream adds a rich, creamy bonus. Enjoy! —Nancy Nicole

In This Recipe
  1. Marinate the chicken in the hot sauce for 1-2 hours. Chop it into 1 inch pieces and saute it until just cooked through.
  2. Beat eggs with half and half, salt and pepper and pressed garlic.
  3. In a 9x12" buttered pyrex dish, layer: one half cup of the cheese, peppers and chicken. Pour egg mixture over and top with the remaining cup of cheese.
  4. Bake in a 350 oven for one half hour. Broil for 3 minutes, or until top is golden and bubbly.
  5. Optional topping: Combine sour cream and cilantro. Let sit for awhile, so flavors can meld.
  6. When fritatta has cooled slightly, top with a dollop of the sour cream (if desired) and serve.
