I love breakfast foods and enjoy them at any time of the day! This frittata recipe works great as a breakfast, brunch or paired alongside a green salad at dinnertime.
Frittata recipes are great in that you can add or substitute ingredients to match the way in which you like to eat. For example, if you do not eat meat, simply replace it with a vegetarian option. The other thing I love about Frittatas is that although they are traditionally Italian, your choice of ingredients can give them the flavor of whatever country you wish.
I made this Irish-style Frittata last weekend and it was instantly all gone! Enjoy!
1 pound boiling potatoes, cubed around 1/2 ” (I prefer red, round potatoes for this recipe)
1 T Olive Oil
1 medium onion, finely chopped
1/2 yellow pepper, finely chopped
1/2 orange pepper, finely chopped
8 eggs, whisked
Himalayan Salt and Pepper to taste
3/4 cup corned beef, chopped into small pieces
1/2 cup Swiss cheese or white cheddar grated
1. Steam the diced potatoes until tender, about 8-10 minutes, set aside. Steaming will save you from having to use too much oil in the cooking process.
2. Select a medium sized, non-stick, heavy pan that can go from the stove top to the oven. I used a 10″ Saladmaster pan, but cast iron would work just as great.
3. Heat the 1 T. Olive Oil in the pan over medium-high heat.
4. Sauté the onions and peppers until tender but not browned, about 5 minutes.
5. Add the steamed potatoes to the onion and peppers and toss them around gently so they don’t break apart. Cook an additional 5-8 minutes until potatoes are heated through. Season with salt and pepper as this mixture is cooking.
6. Leave mixture in the pan, but spread evenly in preparation for the eggs.
7. In a bowl, whisk the 8 eggs together and pour over the potato, onion and pepper mixture.
8. As soon as the frittata bottom has set, turn heat to low and cover. Cook about 10 minutes.
9. Meanwhile, heat the broiler. Uncover the frittata, sprinkle on the cheese and place under the broiler for a couple of minutes to set the top of the frittata and melt the cheese. Watch closely as cooking under the broiler happens quickly!
10. Remove from oven, cool slightly and cut into wedges. Enjoy!
