Potato Bacon Frittata

(4 servings)

  • 6 large eggs
  • 2 medium potatoes
  • 3 or 4 strips of bacon
  • 2 Tablespoons chopped parsley
  • 2 Tablespoons olive oil for frying
  • salt and pepper - to taste
Dice the potato into 1/2 inch pieces. Chop the bacon strips into small pieces.

In a large heavy oven-safe skillet on medium-high heat, heat oil and add potatoes and bacon. Cook at least 6 minutes, stirring often, until potatoes are tender. Drain potatoes and bacon on 2 stacked paper towels and allow to cool.

In a large bowl, beat the eggs with parsley and salt and pepper if desired.

Add potatoes and bacon to the egg mixture and mix well.

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

Clean the original skillet and grease it with olive oil. Pour in mixture and cook at medium heat until nearly set.

Place skillet in the oven and cook until the top of the frittata is fully set (about 10 or 15 minutes; watch carefully).

Allow dish to cool slightly. Cut into pie-like slices and serve warm.
