Healthier Potato Spinach Cheesy Frittata

 

 

Looking for a quick weeknight that can be prepared in no time flat? You just need a few ingredients and this can be ready in under 30 minutes. Often frittata recipes don’t usually have potato in them. My husky hunky hubby loves potatoes! Adding some delicious red potatoes makes this a super hearty dinner dish. Leaving the skin on the potatoes is also less time consuming then peeling and we think tastes better anyway.

 

 

You can make this with meat or without. I had some leftover cooked ham in my freezer that I wanted to use up so I simply defrosted it and added it as well. But honestly it tastes just as good without meat. How do I know? Because of course I’ve made it without and the hubby prefers with. When its just me and the kids for dinner I make it without meat and it.is.so.good. :)

 

 

Even though this looks super cheesy, there is only a 1/2 cup total of cheese in the whole recipe! When you use the good stuff a little goes a long way and you really won’t even notice the small amount of cheese because it bursting with yummy flavor!

  4. I’m a little confused. I can’t find the actual recipe.

  5. My husband has ESRD and is on dialysis. Potatoes are a food to avoid because of high potassium. They ocassionaly can be eaten provided the sliced or diced potatoes are soaked in water for a minimum 3 hrs to remove some of the potassium. On such an occassion, I will be using them in this receipe! I LOVE YOUR WEBSITE!!!
