Ingredients:

  • 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • 4 oz. unpeeled potatoes (~1 small potato), sliced thin
  • 1 shallot, finely chopped
  • 1/4 teaspoon sea salt
  • Black pepper to taste
  • 4 oz. (~1/2 cup) seasonal vegetables cut into 1/2 inch pinches
  • 5 large eggs, beaten well
  • 2 tablespoons goat or feta cheese, crumbled
  • Small bunch of chives, chopped

Directions:

  1. Heat olive oil in a 12-inch ovenproof skillet over medium heat and preheat the oven to broil.
    • Note: For a thicker frittata, use a smaller skillet
  2. Add onions, potatoes, and half of the shallots. Sprinkle in 1/4 teaspoon of salt and pepper to taste. Cover and cook until the potatoes are fork-tender. Add the rest of the vegetables and remaining shallots and cook until soft. Leave half of the vegetable mixture in the skillet, put the other half in a bowl and set aside.
  3. Pour the beaten eggs into the skillet with the vegetables. Cover and cook until the eggs are cooked through.
  4. When eggs are cooked, add the remaining shallots and the remaining half of the vegetable mixture on top. Sprinkle on cheese and remove the skillet from the heat.
  5. Place the skillet under a broiler for just a couple of minutes. Monitor closely, when the frittata is puffed up and set, it is done.
  6. Remove from broiler and sprinkle on chives. Serve and enjoy.
