This is my favorite way to eat eggs! Not to mention potatoes! Omelets and frittata's are eaten not only for breakfast, but also as a main dish.
What is the difference between an omelet and a frittata?
The difference boils down to a matter of folding in a filling rather than mixing it in. Omelets traditionally have the egg mixture cooked and folded around a filling, while a frittata just mixes it all up, cooked in a mishmash combination all at once. Frittata's are often served at room temperature, making them perfect for brunches or larger groups.
Just thought I would throw that in there :) ENJOY!
FOR THE FRITATTA:
6 whole Eggs
¼ cups Of Milk
1 pinch Each Of Salt And Pepper
1/4 teaspoon Dried Oregano
1 teaspoon Butter Optional, You Can Use Olive Oil Spray
¼ cups Chopped Green Bell Pepper
1/2cup Fully Cooked Ham Chopped Into Small Pieces
¼ cups Chopped Onion
1/4 cup grated Swiss Cheese
1/4 cup grated Cheddar Cheese
2 Tablespoons Olive Oil
1 clove Garlic, Minced
1 Tablespoon Achiote Powder
1 teaspoon Cumin
1 teaspoon Paprika
1 teaspoon Garlic Powder
½ teaspoons Chili Powder
¼ teaspoons Ground Black Pepper
1 teaspoon Dried Oregano
½ teaspoons Adobo Powder
½ teaspoons Salt
4 whole Yukon Gold Potatoes Scrubbed And Peeled
1 whole Medium Onion, Chopped
Directions for the Fritatta:Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Beat eggs with milk in a small bowl and season with salt and pepper. Set aside.
Heat a nonstick skillet over medium heat and melt the butter or spray with cooking spray.
Add peppers and cook for 3 minutes or until tender. Add ham and onions. Cook for 1 minute.
Pour the egg mixture over the peppers, onions and ham, stirring with a rubber spatula until the egg begins to set, approximately 1 to 2 minutes. Place cheeses over the omelet and transfer to the oven.
Bake for 20-25 minutes until cooked throughout.
For the Potatoes:
Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
In a medium bowl add olive oil and all seasonings. Slice potatoes lengthwise and then across into thin pieces; add to the bowl and mix well to coat.
Heat a large skillet to medium high heat and add potatoes and onions. Cook stirring occasionally until the are about halfway done, about 20 minutes.
They will get a bit of a brown crust on the bottom and that’s fine. Transfer potatoes to a baking sheet and bake in the oven for about 20-25 minutes until they are tender.
