  • 8 eggs

  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped fresh oregano

  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper

  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil

  • 1 cup sliced red bell pepper

  • 1 bunch scallions, trimmed and sliced

  • 1/2 cup crumbled goat cheese

1. Position rack in upper third of oven; preheat broiler.

2. Whisk eggs, oregano, salt and pepper in a medium bowl. Heat oil in a large, ovenproof, nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add bell pepper and scallions and cook, stirring constantly, until the scallions are just wilted, 30 seconds to 1 minute.

3. Pour the egg mixture over the vegetables and cook, lifting the edges of the frittata to allow the uncooked egg to flow underneath, until the bottom is light golden, 2 to 3 minutes. Dot the top of the frittata with cheese, transfer the pan to the oven and broil until puffy and lightly golden on top, 2 to 3 minutes. Let rest for about 3 minutes before serving. Serve hot or cold.
