Roasted Red Bell Pepper and Mozzarella Frittata

1 large or 2 medium red bell peppers, seeds removed, and quartered ($.40)
2 tsp. olive oil ($.20)
1/2 C. mozzarella ($.25)
6 whole eggs ($.30)
3 egg whites ($.15)
1/3 C. light sour cream ($.15)
3 T. milk, skim or 1% ($.10)
salt and pepper ($.10)

Heat oven to 325.

Drizzle bell pepper with olive oil, place on a grill pan over high heat, roast until skin is blackened, turning over once, approximately 3-5 minutes per side. Remove from grill pan, place pepper in a paper bag. Let set for 5-10 minutes.

Meanwhile, whisk together eggs, egg whites, sour cream, milk, and salt and pepper. Grease a pie plate well with canola oil. Add cheese, pour egg mixture on top.

Remove bell pepper from bag, discard bag, and remove skin from pepper. Chop the bell pepper as fine as you'd like (I like mine chopped fairly fine). Add to egg mixture and bake for 35-40 minutes.

Frittata is done when egg is cooked through and lightly golden on top.
Yields = 4 servings
Cost: $1.65 or $.42 per serving
