Fritatta is a Spanish thick omelet, packed with flavours and could be consumed at any temperature. The Spanish classic Fritatta contains only three ingredients, Eggs, Potatoes and onion. However, many variations have come up along with its three key ingredients. I have added Bell peppers, Cheese, olives alongwith few spices and herbs and have also added bread slices and lots and lots of cheese to make it a full meal. It could be named pizza omelette too. It could be cooked in flat based pan on gas top or after half cook could be put in oven to make it crispier. I cooked it in flat pan in gas stove. For more variations see the notes below Recipe.
