Western Frittata has everything you love about a western omelet but so much easier! This one-pan breakfast is just what you need for a lazy weekend morning.

or6 large eggs
orpinches of kosher salt
orpinches of freshly ground black pepper
or2 tablespoons softened butter
or1/2 cup diced red bell pepper
or3/4 to 1 cup diced deli or cooked turkey ham (if using deli ham, you'll need about 4 slices)
or3 green onions, sliced
orsnipped chives, for serving
orred pepper flakes, for serving
orhot sauce, for serving
Crack the eggs into a bowl and season with a few pinches of kosher salt and black pepper. Then whisk until thick and fluffy.
Melt butter in a 10-inch non-stick skillet over medium heat. Add peppers and cook 5 to 6 minutes or until just starting to soften. Add ham and sliced onions and stir to combine. Then spread into an even layer.
Reduce the heat under the pan to medium-low, give the eggs and quick whisk before pouring the beaten eggs over the pepper and ham mixture. Cover and cook for 10 minutes or until the eggs are set.
Transfer the frittata to a cutting board, cut into wedges and serve with freshly snipped chives, red pepper flakes and hot sauce!
