Recipe For Potato Frittata

I would love to win with the Hot Potato Blogger Challenge with my potato frittata recipe because I could really do with some good news!

A Slice Of Potato Frittata
A Slice Of Potato Frittata

Since Dave and I started our training regime, potatoes have not appeared at our table at night. But, potatoes are brilliant to eat before you train, and as long as you eat them half an hour before you head for the gym, you will get the most out of the potato. I must say that I am quite impartial to eggs, in any form, and so a potato frittata seemed like the perfect dish for me to prepare as my third and final entry into the competition. The most amazing thing about this Italian dish is that you can eat it hot, straight from the oven or you can serve it cold as a dish for a picnic. We had the first slice served warm on a cold and wet Sunday as a mid morning snack. This is also a great way to feed a lot of people on a budget, and you can use any vegetables to bulk up your potato frittata. I used courgettes but next time asparagus is in season I will make the dish with a generous handful of cut spears.

  13. This looks amazing! Glad that you and Dave are enjoying potatoes!! I really do appreciate them as well! I once heard that potatoes are 3X more satisfying than bread… I don’t know if that’s scientifically provable lol, but it sure makes sense to me!! …also I LOVE eggs at dinner! I’ve been making breakfast for dinner a lot lately, and it’s great!!

  15. Out of your potato recipes Tandy I think this potato frittata is my favorite so far! I will take your advice and eat a solid half hour before heading to the gym (ok, the gym I don’t go to because I just workout at home =) or for our daily family walk. (Which still counts as exercise). For a while, I cut carbs completely out of my life but find when I eat a few potato’s with a meal I stay fuller…much longer. Thank you for sharing this =)

    1. Cutting out carbs completely is not healthy, and eating like this before any exercise will make the workout so much easier 🙂

  16. Oh Frittata!!! You are absolutely right, this dish is good at any temperature. Straight from the pan or cold at any time.
    It’s easy and yet delicious. The great thing is that you just cannot get a frittata wrong. Mix the ingredients you like the most and the result is: buonissimo!
    You got me inspired 🙂
