Recipe Summary



Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat the broiler and place the top rack 4 to 5 inches from the broiler element.

  • In a large bowl, whisk together the eggs, cream, 1/4 teaspoon of the salt, and 1/8 teaspoon of the pepper until the eggs are frothy. Set aside.

  • Set a 10-inch, oven-proof skillet over medium high heat and add the chorizo. Cook the chorizo, stirring often, until most of the fat has rendered and the chorizo is well caramelized, about 4-5 minutes. Add the butter, onions and green and red bell peppers and cook, stirring, until the vegetables are soft, 3 to 4 minutes. Add the green onions, garlic, parsley, remaining 1/4 teaspoon of the salt, and 1/8 teaspoon pepper and cook, stirring, until the garlic is fragrant, about 30 seconds.

  • With the pan over medium heat, pour the egg mixture over the chorizo and vegetables, and evenly place the cubed cheeses across the surface. Cook, lifting with a rubber spatula to let the eggs flow underneath, until the edges are set but the middle still is loose, 3 to 4 minutes.

  • Remove from the heat and sprinkle the Parmesan over the top. Place under the broiler until the eggs are slightly puffed and the cheese is golden brown, 2 to 3 minutes, watching carefully to prevent from overcooking.

  • Remove from the oven and carefully slide the frittata out onto a large serving platter. Garnish with additional parsley and chopped green onions, slice, and serve immediately.
