Hearty Northern Frittata

2 T. olive oil ($.10)
pinch of rosemary ($.05)
1/2 pound boiled redskinned potatoes ($.30)
1 small onion ($.05)
6 slices Canadian bacon, chopped ($.30)
Salt and pepper to taste ($.05)
8 eggs, beaten ($.65)
2 T. milk ($.05)
1/2 C. shredded cheddar 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 minced the onion.

Add the potatoes, rosemary, and onion to the skillet and season with 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 and Canadian bacon 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.

  1. Sounds so good - no Canadian bacon, but I'm gonna use some good ham instead. Sounds like the perfect comfort food.

  2. Frittatas are the ultimate comfort food, it's a fun dish to play around with.
