Fast Friday: Potato and Salsa Frittata

Here’s another quick and delicious meal ready in 20 minutes for Fast Friday.

Potato and Salsa Frittata
Started at 5:26, ready at 5:47 (okay so that’s 21 minutes, close enough!)
1 small russet potato
1/2 cup diced ham
1/4 cup thinly sliced green onion
1/2 cup shredded cheese
1/4 cup salsa
5 eggs
1/4 cup milk
pinch of salt and pepper
cooking spray

Scrub potato well, poke it a few times with a fork and bake it in the microwave on high for about 5 minutes until cooked through. Chop up one half of the potato; you only need half for this recipe (the other half is great for lunch!). In a small bowl, beat eggs, milk, salt and pepper. Heat a medium ovenproof skillet over medium heat. Spray with cooking spray. Add egg mixture, then sprinkle with potato, ham, and green onion. Drop dollops of salsa evenly throughout the frittata. Cook covered for 3-4 minutes. Sprinkle with cheese and place under broiler for another 3 minutes, until cheese starts to bubble and egg is set. Cut into pie-shaped wedges. Serve with avocado and salsa if desired.

This would have probably taken less than 20 minutes instead of a minute over if I didn’t have two boys whining at me every 5 seconds and telling me they’re hungry. I know you’re hungry, that’s why I’m making dinner! It’s funny how Cole can be so hungry and yet still not eat his dinner when I finally put it on the table. I had to pull out the ketchup on this one. When all else fails, I resort to ketchup. It worked; Cole seemed to like it once it had ketchup on top of it, and he also liked the avocado a lot too. Bennett, on the other hand, didn’t want anything to do with the avocado but really enjoyed the frittata…with ketchup of course.

So let’s try another blog hop. Last week didn’t go so well, but I’m hoping that will change if I keep at it.
