Western Omelet Frittata takes all the flavors of your favorite omelet and combines them in a simple baked frittata packed with bell peppers, ham, and cheese.
I have always been a sucker for a good Western omelet. I love the combination of red onions, bell peppers, ham, and cheese. However I don't love the calorie count. Many restaurant omelets have between 500-750 calories and between 30-40 grams of fat. Luckily it's easy to a healthier version at home that tastes just as good. Since omelets can be a bit tricky, I like to make a frittata instead. Plus it keeps better in the fridge if there are leftovers.
