Italian Frittata/Omelette

Sunday morning, was thinking what to do for brunch..finally decided to clean up some of the items in the refrigerator.So decided to make Fritatta, similar to our indian omelette, but it is open cooked.And of course, you will be adding lotz of cheese.
Looks a lot like a pizza, so my son loves it.You can add any frsh veg into this, but i had added only mushrooms,red onion and some bell peppers.You pretty much add anything you want in tis recipe.The other choices would be olives,tomato,jalapeno,baby spinach,basil etc.I think you can even experiment with some pineapple also.


Olive oil/Veg.Oil - 2 tsp
Bell peppers-1/2 chopped
Mushrooms- 3 tspn chopped
Red onion - 1/2 chopped
Eggs - 3 beaten well.
cheese - any kind (i used some pepper jack and parmesian)

Set oven to broiler.
In a nonstick pan, heat some oil and saute all the veggies till they are soft.Add some salt and pepper to the beated eggs and pour it into the nonstick pan(with veggies).Slightly mix it and keep it on a medium flame.When the side of the frittata becomes cooked and slightly getting set at the bottom, put the cheese slices on top of the frittata and place this into the oven.Let it boil until the frittata is fully cooked and cheese is melted brownish.This should take only about 5 min.This is very fulfilling sunday breakfast.I used my cast iron pan(which i use for making dosas) for this.I don't like my cheese all brownish, i took out the frittata when the cheese was all bubbly.
