Sweet Pepper and Salami Frittata

Omelets, frittatas, scrambles… All are great ways to use up ingredients you have on hand. In this case I had some extra salami and cherry tomatoes around that I needed to use up. This sweet pepper and salami frittata recipe was a great way to combine them.

Don’t have salami on hand? Ham works just fine. Or sausage.

Also try my more-classic French omelet.
