Breakfast Frittata

Top Review by Cooks2Please

First off, I did not follow the recipe exactly. I popped my potatoes into the microwave and cooked them until tender.From start to finish - I used 1 well seasoned cast iron frying pan. I used 2 tblspoons of butter and added a little oil, to cook the onions and peppers.Then I added the cut up potatoes. For the eggs, I used the whole eggs with 2 Tblspoons of water, instead of the milk. I did not let this cook on the top of the stove, I cooked it in the oven with no problems. If you have a well seasoned cast iron pan, it works better than any other. This is an easy and yummy quick recipe.
