Potato Frittata? What’s not to love?
Frittata is a simple Italian Egg based dish, similar to Omelette or crustless quiche. It is incredibly versatile, satisfying and can be enjoyed at any time of the day. It is really easy to make, well, depending on the fillings you choose to go with. Frittata can be made simple by using just Eggs and Peppers and it would still taste absolutely delicious.
I’m choosing to make mine really satisfying by incorporating Potatoes, Bacon and Frankfurters. Feel free to leave them out if you like. You really don’t need to use same ingredients as stated, simply make it your own recipe by throwing in whatever suits you.

3-4 Big Potatoes (Cooked and diced)

Move the egg around so it covers the entire surface of the pan. Leave the Eggs to set, then slightly combine with the rest of the contents of the pan. Then leave to set again…
Now, add the rest of the Cheese, spread them out across the pan. Then, transfer the pan into the preheated oven and bake for 10-15 minutes or until fully set on the top or cooked through.

- You will need a 26cm to 28cm pan to achieve a perfect Frittata shape and consistency
If you haven’t got an oven, you’ll need a slightly bigger pan, preferably a 30-32cm. This is so the Frittata has enough room to spread out and cook evenly. So, instead of tossing in the oven, you cook to perfection on a hob.
[ ] Ensure the Frittata is cooked on low heat so it cooks perfectly both on the inside and outside.
