Ingredients
  • 1/2 cup | 115 grams potatoes diced into small cubes
  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/2 white onion chopped
  • 1/4 pound | 100 grams asparagus cut into 1 inch long pieces
  • 6 whole eggs
  • 1/4 cup parmesan cheese grated
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt or to taste
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 oz goats cheese crumbled
  • 2 tablespoons fresh basil chopped
Instructions
  1. Add the chopped potatoes to a small cooking pot, cover with water and bring to a boil. Cook over a medium-high heat for 6-8 minutes or until the potatoes are tender. Drain the water and then pat dry. 

  2. Preheat the oven to broil. 

  3. Put a tablespoon of olive oil in a large skillet (about 10 inches in diameter) over a medium high-heat. When hot, add the onion. Sprinkle with salt & pepper and cook until soft, about 5 minutes. Add the chopped asparagus and boiled/dried potatoes and cook another 2-3 minutes.

  4. Meanwhile, beat the eggs in a mixing jug. Add in the salt, pepper & parmesan. Pour the egg mixture over the top of the veggies. Sprinkle the goats cheese  and the basil over the top of the eggs.

  5. Let the frittata cook undisturbed for 7-10 minutes, until the eggs are just about set. Place the frittata in the oven about 5 to 7 inches from the heat and broil until the eggs puff and are just set and the cheese is golden brown, about 2-3 minutes.

  6. Serve hot, warm or at room temperature. Leftovers can be kept in an airtight container for up to 4 days.
