Sensibly Seasoned Red Bean Frittata

 

7 eggs, beaten
3/4 cup red onion, finely diced
1/2 cup celery, finely diced
3/4 cup green bell pepper, finely diced
1 (15-ounce) can Glory Foods Sensibly Seasoned Red Beans

1/4 cup heavy cream
1/2 cup cheddar cheese, grated
1/8 teaspoon thyme, dry
1 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoon vegetable oil

 

Directions

 

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
Mix all the ingredients, except vegetable oil.  Set aside.
Place a 10" nonstick skillet with an ovenproof handle over a medium-to-high flame. Allow skillet to get slightly hot, about 1 to 2 minutes.
Carefully add oil to the skillet, then the egg mixture. Using a heat-proof rubber spatula, gently stir the egg mixture while incorporating some of the cooked egg mixture into the raw. You will only need to do mix for a minute or so.
Place the skillet containing egg mixture on the middle rack of the oven and bake for 20 to 25 minutes until the center of the frittata is set (about 165° internal temperature).
Once the frittata is cooked, remove the skillet from oven and place on a heat-proof surface.  Allow the frittata to sit for 10 to 15 minutes prior to serving.
You may serve the frittata directly from the skillet or carefully remove it from the skillet and place on serving platter.
