If you choose you can serve directly from the souffle dish. Or, if you want the frittata out of the souffle dish, place a plate on top of the frittata. Flip the souffle dish and plate together and your frittata should be sitting on the plate, leaving you with an empty souffle dish.

This sounds tasty! I’m always looking for ideas, I’ve been stuck on what to make for dinner and lunch. It’s always the same pasta or rice based! I’ll have to try this recipe – I love how simple and tasty it sounds!

I love Frittata and this woudl be fab to have on a lunch buffet, cut up for everyone to grab a slice. I think I’d swap the green peppers for red, as I like them a little sweeter. Mich x
