Potato Onion & Pepper Frittata

Submitted by: SPYCE47

Introduction

Years ago I first learned about a frittata from James Beard's "Beard on Food" using leftover potatoes.

When I started to make it, I did a lot of variations. One thing I kept is putting it under the broiler at the end. Crunch City!

Feel free to substitute egg beaters or egg whites, margarine, and/or low fat cheeses. Omit onions if you don't like them.

Ingredients

    6 large eggs, well beaten
    1.5 - 2 c. boiled (or leftover) potatoes, chopped/sliced
    6 TBS butter
    1/2 - 3/4 c. grated Parmesan cheese
    1 c Mozzarella, shredded
    1 c Green Bell Pepper, strips or chopped
    1 c Scallions, chopped (including green parts)
    2-3 Garlic cloves, chopped

    Salt & pepper as desired

    Add mushrooms if you like them.

Directions

Melt butter in a large, heavy (iron) skillet.

Mix potatoes, bell pepper, onion, garlic, parmesan, & mozzarella (plus salt & pepper if desired) together. Add 1/2 to your well beaten eggs & pour mixture into the skillet.

Turn heat to low & let the egg mixture settle - about 10-12 minutes.

Add some chopped parsley to the remaining veggie & cheese mixture. Turn your broiler on. Sprinkle the mixture over the eggs and put the skillet under the broiler for a couple minutes. Let the top set & brown a bit.

Run a spatula under the frittata & slip it out onto a platter. Fresh tomato slices are a delightful accompaniment to this dis!
