Fridays are usually for left overs in our house but for some reason, we had no left overs at all this week.
So I had to come up with something for dinner using whatever’s in the ref since I had no intention of going out and buying something. Since we had eggs and potatoes, I decided to make a potato frittata.
I first heard of a potato frittata when there was a food network show about spanish tapas and it seemed interesting. There were a lot of onions used though and we’re not really big fans of onions. I also never liked potato omelettes much but I figured it was worth a try.
Some recipes finish the cooking in the oven or under a broiler but I didn’t really want to do that. The show I watched though inverted the pan onto a plate then slipped the frittata back on the pan to cook the bottom. That’s what I did. Part of the eggs stuck on the pan when I flipped it but it turned out alright.
I used just one small onion and 2 potatoes with 4 eggs. I also added a splash of milk and some cheese. Just as I was preparing dinner, my mom came over with some sweet corn so I also added some corn. And since I had no fresh herbs, I added about a teaspoon of pesto. My kids didn’t notice anything amiss and said they liked it and would want to have it again.
Would you like a slice?
