Flipping through the pages of Everyday Food: Great Food Fast on a weekend morning trying to decide what to make, I came across this recipe. I only had potatoes and onions; so this was perfect for me. But this is one recipe where you can be really creative and use whatever ingredients you want depending on what's in season or what you have on hand. I tweaked the original recipe a bit to suit my taste.
2 Tbsp butter
2 cloves garlic, crushed and chopped up
½ tsp red pepper flakes
1 large onion, peeled and thinly sliced
1 potato, peeled, thinly sliced and chopped
½ cup of scallions (I only had the green parts so that’s what I used)
A small sprig of rosemary, finely chopped
4 eggs, beaten
¼ cup milk
2 Tbsp Parmesan cheese
In a medium nonstick broiler-proof skillet, melt the butter over medium heat. Add the garlic, red pepper flakes and rosemary followed by the onions, salt and pepper. Cook till the onions soften. Add the potato pieces and cook, mixing everything occasionally, until the potatoes are done.
Meanwhile, whisk together the eggs, milk, salt, and pepper.
Pour the egg mixture into the cooked vegetables (spread it as evenly as possible first) in the skillet. Cook on low heat until the frittata is almost set but the top is still slightly runny. Then place the skillet under the broiler; broil until the frittata is set and the top is lightly golden.
Run a rubber spatula around the edges to loosen the frittata from the skillet, and then slide it out onto a plate. Cut into wedges and serve.
