Baked Omelette in a Cast Iron Skillet

This could be called a Frittata, an Omelette, Baked Egg Casserole, etc.
I like recipes made in Cast Iron.

"If you are not familiar with the advantages of iron versus a regular nonstick frying pan, here’s the deal: Iron cookware actually makes food taste better. But more than that, it will cook your food evenly, is incredibly versatile (moves seamlessly from stovetop to oven to the top of a grill) and leaves trace amounts of iron in your diet. The pan you’ll never have to wash is also the pan you’ll never have to get rid of – take care of it, and you’ll be passing it on to your grandchildren."
"The main reason most people choose to cook with iron is because of its superior ability to retain heat. But forged iron, from which this pan is made, is even better at getting hot and staying hot than cast iron, because of the continuous, rather than molded, metal grain."
This is my new favorite Forged Iron Skillet.

Here's what you'll need:
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.
1 - 10" Cast Iron Skillet

1/2 C Diced Green Onions
1/2 C Diced Green Bell Pepper
8 Large Eggs

Beat until well combined with a Whisk or a Blending Fork.

Peace in the Kitchen!
