Breakfast Frittata with Roasted Peppers and Feta

This breakfast frittata with roasted peppers and feta is so delicious and easy to prepare. I made it during the weekend for my family and they loved it.

I know the prices of eggs are getting out of control and I probably shouldn’t publish a frittata recipe right now, but this one is so good. For me the roasted peppers go so well with eggs and feta. I’m so used to this flavor combination because I grew up eating it. This frittata is inspired by a popular Bulgarian dish, called Mish-Mash. This yummy meal has the same ingredients as this frittata but uses a different method of preparation.

Why should you make this breakfast frittata

The recipe is great for meal prep, because you can make it in advance and serve it for a brunch or lunch. It tastes great warm or cold.

This breakfast frittata is so nutritious. Roasted red peppers are high in vitamin C and A. There are other vitamins, minerals and fiber coming from the green onions and parsley. The recipe is also high in protein because of the eggs and cheese. Since it doesn’t contain any grains and flour it is low in carbs. It is suitable for people who don’t consume meat and gluten.

How to roast peppers

I love to have roasted peppers in the refrigerator. I use them in salads, in breakfast recipes, dips and even sauces. You can roast your peppers in advance and make this frittata much quicker.

I usually roast my peppers on a gas grill. The first step is to preheat an outdoor grill to 450F. Then I roast the peppers for about 15 minutes. I turn them every 3-5 minutes, so they don’t burn. Put the roasted peppers in a pot with a lid or a plastic bag for 5-10 minutes. That way they steam and the peel falls off easily.

You can also roast peppers in a regular or convection oven. Preheat the oven to 400F and place the peppers on a baking sheet. Rotate the peppers every 5-10 minutes until they are charred on each side. Then put them in pot with a lid or a zip lock bag to steam them.

One of the easiest ways to roast peppers is on a gas burner. Use heat resistant tongs to hold each pepper on top of the flame and rotate until the pepper is nicely charred.

If you roast your peppers in advance you can store them in an airtight container in the fridge for 4-5 days.

Helpful tips about making the breakfast frittata

I prefer to use cow feta in brine. This is my favorite type of feta because it is creamy and milder in taste. Unfortunately, it is not easy to find. I buy it from an international store, or I order it online. You can use whatever feta you have and like. I don’t recommend using feta that is already crumbled, because it has additives and anti-caking agents.

Don’t add salt if the feta is too salty. I added only 1/2 teaspoon of salt to my frittata but my cheese was moderately salty.

More tips

If you decide to add roasted red peppers from a jar know that they might add extra acidity to the frittata. Some brands add vinegar to the brine which changes the taste of the roasted pepper.

I use a 10- inch cast iron pan to prepare this recipe. If you are afraid that the eggs might stick, use a nonstick pan or a casserole dish. My cast iron pan doesn’t stick, because I use it a lot and it is well seasoned.

Bake the frittata for 25-30 minutes. Every oven is different, so check often for doneness. The middle of the frittata should be set before you take it out of the oven.
