6 eggs, scrambled
1 medium sized russet potato, diced
1 medium onion, diced
1 bell pepper (your choice of color), diced
1 clove garlic, minced or pressed
1/4 pound pancetta, diced (or substitute fresh Italian sausage, skinned and crumbled)
1/4 cup parmagian cheese, grated
1/2 cup mozzarella cheese, shredded
Salt & Pepper
Olive oil (as needed)
Start oven broiler. In a large bowl, scramble the eggs, add the parmagian cheese, and salt & pepper to taste.
NOTE: Add olive oil as required if vegetables absorb all the pancetta or sausage grease.
In an 8-inch cast iron skillet (or other oven safe, deep sided pan) over medium high heat, sauté the pancetta (or sausage) until rendered. Add diced potato and continue to sauté until tender. Add onion and bell pepper and continue to sauté until potato is browned and bell pepper and onion are tender. Add garlic and continue to sauté until cooked, but not browned.
Reduce heat to medium, swirl skillet to coat sides with rendered fat, then add egg and cheese mixture to skillet. Allow eggs to cook until lightly browned on the bottom. Place skillet under broiler until eggs are cooked on top. Add mozzerella cheeese and place back under broiler until cheese is melted. You can leave the fritatta under the broiler until the cheese is brown and bubbly like a pizza, if desired. Allow to cool for about 5 minutes, then cut into 6 wedges. Garnish each wedge with Italian parsley, and serve with fresh sliced fruit of choice (strawberries are always nice, so are peaches or navel orange wedges).
If this is a brunch, you can always add a mixed green or Romaine salad with Italian or creamy Caesar dressing. My favorite beverages for brunch are, coffee/espresso/cappucino of course, and for the tea totalers, fresh fruit juices, and/or Orange or Strawberry Juliuses. Alcoholic beverages of choice would be a Bellini if serving fresh peaches, a Mimosa if serving orange slices, and my personal favorite (seeing I invented it!), Jennifer's Kiss, which is 6 ounces of strawberry nectar in a 13 ounce wine goblet, with Ballitore Rosso Spumante poured down the center, and adorned with a thick slice of strawberry for garnish.
