"A potato and 6 eggs are fried in olive oil to make this simple frittata. Cut it into rectangles or wedges and serve between 2 slices of Italian bread either by itself or with tomato slices. Delicious!"

salt and pepper to taste
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.
It was a lot better with 1/2 c. of grated sharp cheddar cheese melted on top.
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.
This is a great start... Add onions, vegies, meats, cheese, olives, salsa, spanish sauce to complete for a great meal. Yummy!
WE love this. it doesnt sound like anything special but it is. for some reason it really hits the spot. i serve it on french bread with a tomato slice and fruit as a side. not only is it quick and delicious, but it is CHEAP also. A+++
I love this!
The potatoes turn out tender inside and crispy golden outside,
the eggs are just right.
I was lucky to have a 9" plate to use. But overall, Yowza! Yummers!
Warning: I changed a lot of things. I followed the advice of previous reviewers for a few things. I microwaved the potatoes first and added sauteed onions, and a bit of cheese on top. I also added about a cup of broccoli to make it a complete meal (I feel a meal must have some veggie and potatoes are not veggies for me) and a couple more eggs. I gave it four stars, because flipping via a plate seemed like a bad idea for me. I put in under the broiler for a few minutes to finish it. The cooked potatoes would have had a nice flavor on their own, but adding onions just makes it that much more. The end result was gorgeous and delicious.
I added garlic and a tbls.salsa with left over potates from night before..Yummy!!!
