Ingredients

  • ½ cup yellow onion, chopped (about 1/3 of a medium onion)
  • 1 cup red pepper (about 1 medium pepper), chopped
  • 1 teaspoon minced garlic
  • Salt and pepper, to taste

Tips/Techniques

Pea Points: For a pizza-inspired take on these frittatas, add chopped veggie pepperoni slices and serve with a marinara dipping sauce.
