Time: 30 minutes

Music Selection: The Romantics – What I Like About You

“What I like about” frittata …. hmmmm… everything. So easy, hearty, healthy, not many dishes to clean…. AND you likely have most, if not all, of the ingredients in your kitchen at all times… potatoes, eggs, onion, ham/bacon, herbs, cheese and sour cream. This is a great meal or side-dish for breakfast, lunch or dinner and you can get creative and use other ingredients that you have handy or like.


2 Tbsp butter or olive oil

2 medium potatoes, washed

1 clove garlic, minced (optional)

½ cup tomato, diced

½ onion, in slices, then quartered

8 eggs

2 cups cheddar, grated (you can get creative and mix types of cheeses – cheddar, monterey jack, swiss, gouda, gruyere, etc)

2 Tbsp fresh basil, sage or oregano (dried, if you can’t get fresh)

½ cup crispy fried bacon, pancetta, ham or spicy sausage (like chorizo), cooked and cut in small pieces (optional)

½ cup sour cream



Pre-heat oven to 350 deg F.

Leave skins on potato, and slice into ¼ inch rounds. Slice the onion in thin rounds, then quarter. Fry the potatoes and onions in the butter in a skillet that can go in the oven. If your skillet cannot go in the oven, you will need a lid for the skillet.

Let potatoes and onions get browned on medium heat, so do not flip too often or they will get soft.

In a bowl, mix eggs and sour cream. Add in the tomato and herbs. If adding meat, you can it now, too. Also add some salt/pepper.

When the potatoes and onions are nicely browned on both sides of the potatoes, remove the pan from heat. Pour the egg mixture over and then evenly spread the cheese. Place pan in the pre-heat oven for 15 minutes. You can then broil it for 1 – 2 minutes to ensure the eggs are cooked and the cheese melted.

Let it cool for a few minutes, then cut into pie wedges and serve with extra fresh tomato, parsley or basil. You can also add a large dollop of sour cream, natural greek yogurt or salsa!
