Potato And Onion Frittata


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.

Oh wow.. that looks so perfect & golden brown. At one point i used to make frittatas and quiches so often - can't think of a good reason why i don't anymore.

Vani- thank you.:D

Ramya- It is a lot easier than you think. All you need is a skillet which can do double-duty.:D

Soma- I've never actually tried potatoes and eggs, but this was good not to mention filling. :)

A & N- you left your comment just when I was moderating the other ones.:D
Yeah, this should be good for your no-carb diet. Just substitute or omit the potatoes.:)

I always love frittatas because they seem like they are a lot more work to make than they really are! Guaranteed to impress your family and friends.

I found for the first time today - I'm enjoying catching up on your archives.

I know what you mean...I never made this for the longest time thinking that it was very labor-intensive.

Gald you are finding some recipes that you like. That reminds me- I have to work on updating my index.:)
