Potato and Red Pepper Frittata

READY IN: 40mins
Recipe by dojemi

This recipe is from Everyday Food. The original recipe calls for 2 teaspoons chopped fresh rosemary. I choose to omit it. Being onion lovers, I added a whole onion rather than 1/2 as the recipe stipulated. NOTE: It's okay if potatoes are not cooked evenly. Some will be browned; others only transparent. The original recipe suggests using an 8-inch skillet.

My husband loved this and I loved that it was healthy. I sauteed the peppers and onions for 10 minutes as we don't like them crunchy; next time I would add fresh garlic. I would also use one large potato instead of two - I ended up using a 12" skillet to accommodate all of the potatoes and then transferred everything to a 10" skillet for baking. I would either add a creamy cheese (goat cheese, cream cheese, even a bit of light velveeta, to add creaminess to the dish which I found a little dry, or cook for the lower end of the suggested time - 15 or 16 minutes. Finally the addition of fresh herbs - chives, dill, parsley would add a nice punch.
