Oh I love you.... all kinds of yumminess mixed in with eggs & cheese...what could be better?  For those of you that don't know what a Frittata is (hubby this is for you...:)  it is eggs with meat, veggies & cheese.  Simple, easy and absolutely delicious.  I  make all kinds of frittatas.  Vegetarian with asparagus & fresh mushrooms in the spring, with all kinds of vegetables(whatever is fresh at the farmers market) & diced turkey in the summer, with potatoes, peppers, onions and ham in the fall/winter... the possibilities are endless.  Alot of times I use whatever is leftover from last nights dinner (a great way to use up those leftovers, steak, potatoes, broccoli, onions,peppers,spinach whatever... Different ingredients & the same technique... Use whatever seasonings you like..sometimes in the summer I pick a little rosemary or parsley and add to the eggs delicious, and as always use what you like.  I also sprinkle a couple of tablespoonfuls of shredded cheese & freshly grated Parmesan it gives this a wonderful flavor, but again it is completely optional.  This serves 5  (kids & adults, but you can add more ingredients and eggs and feed more).  I serve this with buttered toast.  Enjoy


2-3 small diced red/yukon gold potatoes (if raw scrub first)
1/4 onion, diced small
vegetables of your choice (I used red, yellow,orange peppers about 1/4 each diced small)
1/2 cup ham diced (deli is fine)
6 eggs
1 T water
2 T each, colby jack cheese & freshly grated parmesan)
1 T each olive oil & butter

seasonings of your choice (salt & pepper, garlic & onion powder, pinch of parsley flakes & red pepper)

 Pre heat broiler to high.
In oven safe frying pan add olive oil & butter over medium high heat.  Add potatoes and onion (if using already cooked leftover potatoes add onion and cook for 2-3 minutes before adding potatoes) but if using raw potatoes put them in together, add vegetables (if raw, if using cooked vegetables all you want to do is put them in to heat them up when you add your cooked meat just to heat it up).  Sprinkle with salt & pepper.  Cook until vegetables are fork tender.  Add meat & seasonings (and cooked vegetables if using.  Heat for 1-2 minutes or until hot.  Pour over mixture eggs.  Move egg mixture around the pan getting ingredients in an even layer.  Sprinkle with additional seasonings.  Turn down heat to medium. Continue cooking until bottom of eggs are set and if you wiggle the pan the whole mixture moves a little.  Place the mixture under the broiler watch carefully cause this should take just a couple of minutes. The eggs should be puffed and set.  Sprinkle cheese over the top and cook just another minute under the broiler till the cheese is melted.  Remove from oven & cut into wedges serve.  Enjoy
