Frittata with Potatoes


This is one of those plate I’ve been eating since I was a little kid. It was a common dish when my grandma was alive and after her, my mom continued making this delicious frittata.

Frittata is a type of Italian omelette either simple or enriched with meat, cheese or even pasta. It is not an omelette though, as it is not served folded, eggs are beaten to incorporate as much air as possible (while the omelette is stirred with less air incorporated l) and can also be cooked in the oven instead of frying it.

Today’s frittata  is very easy and doesn’t require special ingredients, therefore it’s perfect for a quick dinner after getting off work late or can even be an idea as finger food during a party 😉

Ingredients (2 servings) :

  • 1 big potatoes
  • 2 eggs –
  • salt
  • 2 tbsp olive oil

First thing, wash and peel the potato, then slice it into thin slices


Heat some oil in a frying pan and fry them in small batches until crispy, season with same salt


Crack the eggs into a bowl, season with salt and beat them until foamy. Move the potatoes back to the frying pan and pour in the eggs


Cook on both sides until eggs are cooked and your frittata got a nice golden-brown color



You can cut it into cubes and serve it during a party, you can slice it and eat it with a fresh salad or even put it in a sandwich. either way it is going to be delicious!
