Prep time

5 min.

Cook time

25 min.

  • 1 Tbsp olive oil
  • 1 medium russet potato, diced
  • 1/2 white onion, diced
  • 6 whole eggs
  • 1/4 cup 1% milk
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley
  • Salt and pepper, to taste

In a medium skillet, heat the oil over medium heat.

Add the potatoes and onion, and cook, covered, for 20 to 30 minutes, until softened.

In a separate bowl, whisk the eggs with the milk and parsley. Season with salt and pepper.

Add the eggs to the potato/onion mixture, and use a spatula to release the omelet so it doesn’t stick.

Cover and cook over medium-low heat, until cooked through without burning the bottom. Broil the top to brown. Move the frittata to a plate, and cut it into wedges to serve.
