Vegetarian Brunch Frittata Recipe

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of PAM Cooking Spray. For more information, visit http://www.pamcookingspray.com.

I have used PAM Cooking Spray for a long time and to cut costs I switched to a store brand cooking spray. It ended up being a pretty big mistake. It left grime and gunk all over my pans that was a bear to get off, not to mention it caused my son’s birthday cake to stick to the pan. I immediately went back to Pam and have been happily cooking and baking ever since. Now PAM’s cooking spray has improved to 99% less residue build up!

PAM sent me their Original and Baking cooking sprays along with a Le Creuset pie plate and asked me to share a recipe with my readers. I chose this easy, delicious vegetarian frittata. This recipe is really more of a method and you can add whatever veggies you like or even meat.

 

Okay, let’s get to making some tasty food. The recipe card is at the bottom of this post for easy printing.

Ingredients:

  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1 medium potato
  • 1/2 red onion, finely chopped
  • 1 bell pepper, seeded and chopped
  • 8 eggs
  • 1/4 cup grated parmesan cheese
  • a few shakes of your favorite hot sauce (we like Cholula)
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon oregano
  • 2 tbsp fresh cilantro, chopped
  • 3/4 to 1 cup Monterey Jack cheese (optional)

Cooking Instructions:

Slice your potato very thin. This is going to line the bottom of your dish so you don’t want them to be too thick.

Spray your pie plate with Original PAM Cooking Spray

Melt the butter in a pan then add the onion and bell pepper. Cook until the onions are translucent.

Pour the egg mixture over the potatoes and cook in the oven at 350 for 30 minutes.

If you choose to add the Monterey Jack cheese, cook for 20 minutes then add the cheese on top and cook for the remaining ten minutes.

Admire your handiwork for ten minutes while your frittata cools and then slice and eat. Yum!

I’m assuming Pam is dairy-free? Now that we have food allergies to deal with I’m on the look-out for dairy-free options. I would use this for baking chicken and prepping pans.
