    Serves: 4 

    • 2 tablespoons (40ml) olive oil
    • 1 large baking potato, peeled and sliced 1/2 cm thick
    • 6 eggs, whisked
    • 1 pinch salt and pepper, to taste

    Preparation:10min  ›  Cook:15min  ›  Ready in:25min 

    1. Heat oil in a large frying pan over medium high heat. Spread potato slices across bottom of the frying pan and cook, turning once, until golden on both sides. Remove slices from the frying pan and drain. Repeat until all the potato is cooked.
    2. When all potato slices have been cooked, return them to the frying pan. Turn heat to high. Pour on the whisked eggs and season with salt and pepper. Tilt the pan so that the eggs flow to the bottom of the pan. Turn heat to medium low.
    3. Cover the frying pan with a plate and flip so that frittata is turned out onto plate. Slide the frittata back into the pan with the uncooked side down. Cover and let cook another 2 minutes.
    4. When frittata is finished cooking, remove it from the pan and drain briefly on paper towels before serving.

    This was a great recipe! The only reason why I'm giving it 4 stars is because it was a little too plain for my tastes. I followed the recipe almost exactly. The only changes I made were: I didn't peel the potatoes but left the skins on and I cooked them for 3 min in the microwave before browning them. I cut out the olive oil completely and just sprayed my frying pan with Pam. And I added some diced onion. Maybe next time I'll try adding some ham or mushrooms and maybe a little onion powder/garlic powder to give it more flavor.  -  18 May 2007  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    It was a lot better with 1/2 c. of grated sharp cheddar cheese melted on top.  -  04 Feb 2001  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    This is a good basic recipe. I do think that you need to add something to suit your family's taste. I added some parmesean cheese and basil with ham as well. Thanks for the beginning of a good dish.  -  24 Apr 2004  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
