Frittata with Potato and Prosciutto

Standard

Hola!

I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas surrounded by family and friends! I am sooo tired! We celebrated on Christmas Eve and yesterday I was exhausted and my body hurt! Too much bending and checking the food in the oven maybe…

For Christmas Day lunch I made a delicious Frittata. I t was so good and pretty!

It’s a great and easy but elegant meal. Definitely better than pancakes!

Ingredients

Directions

Heat the oil in a heavy 9 1/2-inch-diameter skillet over medium heat. Add the potato, onion, and garlic. Season the potato mixture with salt and pepper, to taste. Saute over medium-low heat until the potato is golden and crisp on the outside, tender inside, about 7 to 10 minutes.

Preheat the broiler. Whisk the eggs, cream, Parmesan, prosciutto, and basil in a medium bowl to blend. Stir the egg mixture into the potato mixture in the skillet. Cook over medium-low heat until the egg mixture is almost set but the top is still loose, about 3 minutes. Place the skillet under the broiler. Broil until the top is set and golden brown, about 4 minutes. Using a rubber spatula, loosen the frittata from skillet and slide the frittata onto a cutting board. Cut the frittata into 12 wedges.

Split open each bread piece. Toast the bread on a grill pan until golden. You can also broil the bread cut side up until golden, about 1 to 2 minutes, keeping a careful watch on the bread since they can easily burn. Butter the cut sides of the toasted bread. Arrange a frittata wedge on each bottom piece of bread. Cover with the bread tops and serve.

I used chopped prosciutto instead of sliced and used dried basil instead of fresh. Instead of using the broiler I just baked it for about 10 minutes. I always burn things when I use the broiler so I wanted to avoid that! Of course I didn’t have any bread either so we just ate it without. If there is any left over it is delicious and hearty for breakfast the next day.

Have a wonderful Monday!

Besos,

Flor
