Carmelized Onion and Potato Frittata

2 T. olive oil ($.10)
1 tsp. minced garlic ($.10)
1 pound redskinned potatoes ($.20)
1 small onion ($.05)
3 slices bacon, chopped ($.20)
Salt and pepper to taste ($.05)
8 eggs, beaten ($.75)
3 T. milk ($.05)
1/2 C. shredded munster cheese ($.25)

Heat oven to 450.

Heat the olive oil in medium heat-proof skillet over medium-low heat with the minced garlic. Let the garlic infuse the oil while you thinly slice the potatoes and onion.

Add the potatoes, bacon, and onions to the skillet and season salt and pepper, to taste. Raise the heat a little and cook for 6 to 7 minutes. Turn the potato/onion mixture over and cook for 5 minutes more.

In a large bowl, whisk the eggs and milk together, season with salt and pepper. Add the egg mixture to the skillet and move them around and under the potatoes to settle them. Transfer the skillet to the oven and bake until golden on top, about 10 to 12 minutes. Sprinkle the cheese on top, turn the oven off and let sit for another couple of minutes.

Remove from the oven and serve.
Serve with juice and fresh fruit.

    Yum!! I love cooking with potatoes and when they're in season, they're so cheap. Great family friendly meal, can't wait to give this a try.
