I enjoy making frittatas because it allows for more veggies in the diet. This was no exception. I cooked this in my well-seasoned cast iron skillet. Did not have the fresh spinach so I used frozen baby spinach which I quick defrosted in the microwave. Cut the recipe in half to serve 4 and used egg substitute for the eggs. The recipe called for 8 red potatoes and didn't specify size. I used 1 medium red potato and it was plenty.
This was a realy easy recipe. I didnt have a mandoline so i sliced everthing thin and it worked well. This worked great as a quick dinner would def. make again.
