Potato, Ham, and Spinach Frittata

So this is an amazingly simple, delicious and healthy breakfast recipe! Note, I buy free-range organic eggs or organic/Gmo free options when I can out of my belief that Gmo’s are hazardous to human health and organic does not have dangerous pesticides or insecticides. You do not need to do that if you can not!

First off you will need:

3 tablespoons olive oil
2 small russet potatoes (about 3/4 pound), peeled and thinly sliced
1 small onion, thinly sliced
9 large eggs
kosher salt and black pepper
1 10-ounce package frozen chopped spinach, thawed and squeezed of excess liquid
4 ounces white Cheddar, grated (1 cup)
4 ounces thinly sliced deli ham, cut into 2-inch pieces
1 tablespoon red wine vinegar
1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
1 head red leaf lettuce, torn into bite-size pieces (6 cups)

Our Directions:

1. Heat oven to 400° F. Heat 2 tablespoons of the oil in a large ovenproof nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add the potatoes and onion and cook, tossing occasionally, until the potatoes are tender, 12 to 15 minutes.

2. Meanwhile, in a large bowl, whisk together the eggs, ½ teaspoon salt, and ¼ teaspoon pepper. Mix in the spinach, Cheddar, and ham.

3. Add the egg mixture to the skillet, stir once, and transfer the skillet to oven. Cook until the eggs are set, 12 to 14 minutes.

4. Meanwhile, in a large bowl, whisk together the vinegar, mustard, the remaining tablespoon of oil, and ¼ teaspoon each salt and pepper. Add the lettuce and toss to coat. Serve with the frittata.

So there you go! This a a hit with kids. Just remind them that its a special kind of omelette! Of course you can always add and take our your preferred veggies! I hope you enjoy!
