Potato Frittata for St. Patrick's Day

Happy St. Patrick's Day. To honor the holiday I made a potato and KerryGold cheese frittata. I am a big fan of frittata's but have never incorporated potatoes into them.

1.5 tablespoons olive oil
1 large potato, sliced
1/3 cup sweet onion, chopped
2 cloves garlic, chopped
1/3 cup red pepper, chopped
1 cup baby spinach, chopped/torn
salt and pepper to taste
6 eggs
1/3 cup 1% milk
1/3 cup shredded KerryGold cheddar cheese

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Slice potatoes and place on a paper towel to absorb excess water/fluid.

2. Heat olive oil in a medium skillet over medium heat. Place potatoes in the skillet, season, cover, and cook about 5 minutes. Meanwhile, in a medium bowl, beat together eggs and milk with a dash of salt and pepper. Flip the potatoes over, cook 5 minutes until tender but firm. Remove and place aside.

3. Place onions, red pepper and garlic into the pan. Season with salt and pepper. Cook 2 minutes, add spinach and cook 1 minute. Remove from the pan and then place potatoes back into the pan, distributing evenly and place sauteed vegetables back on top.

4. Pour the egg mixture into the skillet over the vegetables. Reduce heat to low, and cook 5 to 7 minutes, or until eggs are getting firm on top. Then place the pan into the oven. When the eggs are almost completely set, sprinkle with cheddar cheese. Bake, maybe a minute, until cheese is melted.

You just reminded me that I haven't had a Frittata in forever. This one looks so great. Perfect for St. Patty's Day!

This looks wonderful - for any meal of the day. A little bit of Irish and little bit Italian!

Wow! The colors just pop out of this fritatta! At first, it was the Kerrygold cheese that caught my attention but the red pepper and spinach look soooo good . . .

BTW, the new 3-column format looks great!!
