Potato, Spinach & Chive Frittata

READY IN: 40mins
Recipe by CountryLady

From Food & Drink - the best of the decade, this "crustless quiche" or "flat omlette"is good for breakfast, lunch, brunch or a light dinner!! You can vary the fillings - leek & bacon, smoked salmon & chives, use your imagination - but the method stays the same.

Dear C.L., I do make frittatas often. Made this recipe for tiffin yesterday and got an update from DH that he loved it. I added minced roast beef that I had made the previous night and some chopped green chillies and coriander leaves instead of the chives(was not avlbl in the supermarket) and cheddar cheese instead of the gruyere cheese (never used it it is avlbl they say but never seen it myself) and followed the rest of the instructions very religiously. (I did keep some for DS and meself too for b'fast and we gave it a thumbs up too. Fay
