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. Wrap handle of skillet with nonstick aluminum foil.
  3. In a medium bowl, mix together eggs, salt, and pepper.
  4. Heat olive oil in the nonstick skillet over medium heat.
  5. Add sliced peppers and onions and cook until soft, about 8 minutes.
  6. 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.
  7. Sprinkle with shredded cheese.
  8. Use an oven mitten to transfer the skillet in to the broiler. Broil for 3-4 minutes. The cheese should bubble and the frittata should be "set." That means it's not liquid and jiggly anymore.
  9. Remove pan from the oven and allow to cool for a minute before slicing into 6 wedges. Serve.
