Frittatas are great party food because they can be made ahead of time and served warm or even at room temperature.
- 2 tsp. extra virgin olive oil
- 2 medium-sized red bell peppers, diced
- 8 green onions (white and light green parts), sliced
- 1 1/2 cups fresh or frozen white or yellow corn kernels
- 1 Tbs. dried oregano
