Potato Artichoke Frittata

I just love making frittatas for breakfast or dinner. They are quick and easy, much lower fat than quiche, and pack a good dose of protein. They have the added bonus of being a one-pan meal, which means little work and little clean-up. Top this veggie rich frittata with a dollop of creme fraiche and fresh herbs, and you have a beautiful and effortless gourmet meal. Weather served for a weeknight family dinner, or for an elegant brunch, this recipe is sure to please.


Artichoke Potato Frittata
Serves 4-6

1/2 yellow onion, chopped
2 garlic cloves, minced
1 cup sliced potato, any colors you like
1 cup artichoke hearts (I use the marinated jarred artichoke hearts, drained of water)
5 eggs
1/4 cup whole milk
1/4 cup Parmesan cheese

Creme fraiche, for garish
Fresh herbs, such as Italian Parsley, basil, or dill, for garnish

Preheat oven to 450 degrees, with rack set at the top.
Heat a large ovenproof skillet over medium heat. Add 1 tablespoon olive oil. Saute onion, garlic, potato, and a pinch of salt and pepper until tender, about 5-10 minutes. Meanwhile, whisk together eggs, milk, and cheese. Pour egg mixture over potato mixture. Top with artichokes. Reduce heat to medium-low and cook until eggs start to set, about 5 minutes. Transfer pan to oven and cook an additional 5 minutes or until top of fritatta is set. Cool slightly, remove from pan, and cut into wedges.

    Good Morning Marina! My daughter Alexandra (she is a freshman at Westmont) asked me to look at your blog,she is a serious foodie, ever since she was born,..her snacks (when she was 2) consisted of capers, olives, bread w/olive oil and cheese.. she had her own cheese monger in Boston when she was 4, she loved the most stinkiest (and most expensive) french imports..haha..i can remember when she wanted a polly pocket (curse all those tiny little parts)and i told her only if she would eat the shrimp heads (we were having sushi), and she did !..tenticles and all..well i must say i adore your blog and the recipes! i am sure when Alexandra is home for thanksgiving i will be cooking some of you recipes for her! i too had two girls and it brings back memories of being in the kitchen with them (i love to cook)during the dead cold winters (massachusetts and colorado) i would cook and bake and try every recipe i could and then i would put music to the recipes/meals based on their origins..enjoy and cherish all of these moments they will be so precious to you..if you ever need a taste tester or a babysitter or helper let me know, Alexandra loves children (and she loves to eat, haha)! We are now in Fallbrook/De Luz Southern Cal, and lived in Santa Barbara before our daughters were born, so it brings me much joy that she is in a place that i hold dear to my heart..happy thanksgiving to you and your lovely family...
