Pepperoni Spinach Frittata

Pepperoni Spinach Frittata

Elegant but easy, a frittata is perfect for those special-occasion breakfasts. The basil and anise seed complement the pepperoni, but feel free to vary the spices. Instead of basil and anise seed, try oregano and fennel seed or your own favorite combination. This frittata can handle it.–Sara Engram and Katie Luber

LC Versatile Doesn't Cover It Note

This pepperoni spinach frittata is swell for a fancy breakfast, but don’t think for a second that’s the limit of its talents. It could just as easily be on a brunch menu, the star of a ladies’ lunch, a simple supper, even a midnight snack. Versatile doesn’t even begin to cover it.

Directions

Preheat the broiler.
Beat together the eggs, basil, anise seed, black pepper, and salt in a medium bowl. Stir in the mozzarella, spinach, pepperoni, and Parmesan cheese.
Heat the oil in an ovenproof, nonstick medium skillet over medium heat. Stir in the onion and bell pepper and saute until tender, about 5 minutes. Add the garlic and saute for 1 minute.
Pour the egg mixture into the skillet and stir to combine the eggs and vegetables. Decrease the heat to low and cook the frittata until the egg mixture has set on the bottom and begins to set on top, about 5 minutes.
Transfer the skillet to the broiler and continue cooking until the frittata is set, 3 to 4 minutes. A traditional frittata is not browned. Loosen the edges of the frittata with a spatula, slide the frittata onto a plate, and serve immediately.
