Potato and Onion Frittata
Potato and Onion Frittata is a meatless, quick recipe that is delicious for breakfast, lunch or dinner. I’m not a lover of a ‘huge’ breakfast. What I mean by that is, I prefer a bowl of cereal, some fruit and a glass of juice to start off my day. Of course I will always reach for the doughnut, muffin or slice of coffee cake first but I reserve that for a ‘special occasion.’
On the Other Hand
On the other hand, my hubby loves a huge breakfast. Bacon, eggs, toast, hash browns, pancakes and juice. You know the kind of breakfast. The kind of breakfast you definitely don’t want to make at home…dishes, dishes, and more dishes. Go down to the Chute Pond Diner, that’s what I say! Even though I’m not a fan of a huge breakfast, I do love a breakfast for dinner. Scrambled eggs, omelettes, a frittata or even french toast. I can eat any of these traditional ‘breakfast’ dishes for dinner anytime.
What is a Frittata
A frittata [frih-TAH-tuh] is an Italian omelet that usually has the ingredients mixed with the eggs rather than being folded inside, as with a French omelet. It can be flipped or the top can be finished under a broiling unit. An omelet is cooked quickly over moderately high heat and after folding has a flat-sided half-oval shape. A frittata is firmer because it’s cooked very slowly over low heat, and it’s round because it isn’t folded.
Perfect to serve for breakfast, lunch or dinner.
- 6 Small baby potatoes, sliced in half
- 1/4 cup chopped onions
- 1 clove garlic, minced
- dash salt and pepper, or to taste
- 2 tablespoons butter
- 1 1/4 cups Egg Beaters, egg product
In 8-inch nonstick, oven-proof skillet or cast iron skillet, over medium-high heat, sauté potatoes, onion, garlic, salt and pepper.
Pour egg beaters evenly into skillet over potato mixture. Cook, without stirring, for 5-6 minutes or until cooked on bottom and almost set in top.
Place frittata 3-inches under broiler. Cook 2-4 minutes, with door ajar, watching carefully, until top is golden brown.
Carefully remove frittata from oven and slide onto serving platter or place serving platter on top of skillet and flip over.
