Another cold Sunday rolled around and it was time to find something to eat. So I went through the pantry to see what I had. I had eggs. I always have eggs. I had some potatoes, cheese, some ham. My initial thought was to make the fried potatoes scrambled egg thingy, but then I decided to try my hand at a frittata. I had never made one before but I had recently watched a cooking show were the chef made one.
- Four eggs whisked
- About 1/3 cup chopped peppers
- 1/4 cup shredded ham
- 1/2 cup shredded red potatoes
- 1/3 cup feta cheese
Preheat the oven to 350. A frittata is basically a baked egg pie. I worried that the twenty minutes in the oven wouldn’t be enough to cook the potatoes and I hate undercooked potatoes. So I took the shredded potatoes and dumped them in a cast iron skillet with oil, salt and pepper. They cooked for about five minutes.
Twenty minutes later I had a frittata.
It was ok if not great. I would say with a few other things, some toast or fruit, this makes enough for two people. By my lonesome I only managed to eat 3/4 of it. I also learned frittatas do not reheat in the microwave well, so I ended up throwing the uneaten part out. Next time I’ll just use three eggs and cut everything by a quarter.
