Potato Fritata

Fritata makes for a wonderful breakfast when you are short on time but need to serve a filling breakfast. The days i get up late to prepare breakfast for my hubby, he gets a fritata :). The man has no complain whatsoever because he loves it just as much as i love making it. There are a lot of ingredients you can play around to make a great fritata but when simple ingredients works their magic...it is always very satisfying.

1 Big - Potato, sliced thin and shallow fried
1 Big or 2 Medium - Onions, sliced thin
1 Medium - Tomato, seeded and sliced thin
1 - Red Chilli, seeded and diced
1/2 Tsp - Red Chilli Powder
2 Tbsp - Butter
6 - Large Eggs or 2 Eggs per head
1 Tsp - Oregano, dried
1/2 - 1 Tsp - Garlic Salt or as per taste

Shallow fry the sliced potatoes until the slices are partially cooked, meaning no resistance when you prick it with a fork, and let drain on a kitchen towel.
Heat the pan, melt butter and layer the onion rings and cook till translucent, then add the tomatoes and chilli and sprinkle some salt over it.

Now layer the potatoes atop the onions and sprinkle some more salt. 
Beat the eggs till well combined and the chilli powder and beat to mix, then pour this mixture over bed of potato and onion and turn down heat to medium-low.
Cook till the egg mixture doesn't flow when  you tilt the pan. At this point flip the omelet and cook till the other side is cooked about 2-3 minutes.
Transfer to a plate, cut and serve with some tomato ketchup. Simple yet a very sumptuous breakfast served.


  1. your scrumptious fritata reminds me that I have not cook one in ages :D

  2. The fritata looks delicious. Potato is not really my favourite, but egg is.. and this looks very tempting. I think I will give it a try.

  3. @ Lisa, am sure the family will enjoy it :).

    @ Radha, thanks for stopping by. You can omit the potato and use any veggies of your choice. Yellow & Red Capsicum also will do for starts, it not only taste good but looks very pretty as well:).


Thank you for stopping by. Delighted to be sharing some l-o-v-e from my kitchen with you. If you sample any of my cooking, do come back and let me know. Cheers!
