It’s a Frickin’ Good Frittata

December 16, 2010

Hi friends! I’m about to dive head-first into grading (wheeeeeee! This shall be followed by a head-first dive into wine, but more on that later).

But—I had to share this delicious frittata that my mom cooked up last night! This one was a winner.

Veggie Frittata


1 large potato, grated (about two cups)

1/2 tsp. salt

1 tbsp. olive oil

1 onion, diced

2 cloves garlic, diced

1 red bell pepper, diced

1 cup broccoli, chopped

1 tsp. dried thyme

1 tsp. dried basil

1/8 tsp. cayenne pepper

1 tsp. salt

6 eggs

1 cup sharp cheddar


Preheat oven to 375

To make the potato crust, place the grated potato in a bowl with salt and allow to rest for 10 minutes.  Squeeze out excess water, and place potato into a greased pie plate and press evenly into bottom of the dish.

In a pan, heat olive oil.  Add onion and garlic, and cook for 5 minutes, until beginning to soften.  Add bell pepper and broccoli and cook for a few more minutes, until just beginning to soften (they will cook more in the oven). 

Transfer the veggies to a bowl and add herbs, eggs, and cheese.  Mix well and pour over the potato crust.  Bake for 25-30 minutes, until firm.

We served ours with a side salad and bread.  Yum!

The crust was definitely the best part:

Okay.  Off to grade.  *Cue the dirge*

    I’m heading for wine tonight, too…it’s been one of those weeks, what can I say?
