Step 1: Overview
To make the frittata you need the following ingredients: eggs, white onion, red onion, bell pepper, cherry tomatoes, feta cheese, scallion, salami, shredded cheese, mushrooms, salt and pepper to taste.
Put the eggs in a bowl and whisk. Set aside. Heat a cast iron skillet before you sauté the vegetables. The secret to the best tomato feta frittata is a cast iron skillet and a hot oven. The frittata will cook in the oven so you need a pan that is heat resistant that is why a cast iron skillet is the ideal pan for this tomato feta frittata.
Pre heat the oven at 400℉/200℃. Heat the skillet over high heat and put some oil into it. Pan fry the bell peppers, white and red onions until soft and translucent. Then add the cherry tomatoes. Stir them through the pan until they are soft.
Now it is time to include the salami and let is flavor the vegetables. Lastly add the mushrooms and stir. Make sure the skillet is evenly covered with the vegetables when you pour the whisked eggs into the pan. Let it set while you sprinkle the scallion on the frittata, the feta and grated cheese. Season it with salt and pepper.
Put the cast iron skillet in the oven and let your tomato feta frittata cook for 15-17 minutes or until all of the egg is dried and has puffed up. Cut the frittata in 8 wedges and serve with some baguette or a fresh salad.
