New This Month

This is a quick and easy supper. Using egg whites only will make the texture of the frittata more rubbery.

Cook's Notes

Extra yolks: To store (for custards or egg washes), place unbroken yolks in water in a covered container and refrigerate, up to 2 days. If you have no use for them, you can buy unprocessed pure egg whites in the dairy section at the market.

    I have made this recipe twice. And love it. It is very easy. My husband couldn't tell that it doesn't have meat. I make it with Maui onions.

    I made this and it came out great!I didn't have any fresh parsley or rosemary so I used dry and I can still taste the influences of both. I used a griddle to cook the potatoes and onions and then transferred them to the skillet with a little hot oil, added the mixture. It didn't take 10 mins for it to set though more like 5. And if you have a crazy broiler like mine cut the time in there in half. Good Stuff!

    yes. use 5 whole eggs and an additional 5 egg whites. We love this in my family. I use fresh rosemary and slice the potato with a mandolin. It's good when I need something last minute. I put under broiler as directed.

    ok I'm confused. Do I use 5 whole eggs and 5 egg whites, or just 5 whole eggs?

    To sissinghurst. I know all the steps do make it appear to be a complicated recipe. But it's really not. Please make the recipe at least once. It's really delicious and is a great brunch dish. I think you'll be making it all the time, once you've mastered the steps.

    To Rosemarieobrien. You're OK to use 3 whole eggs instead of the whites. It will be a very rich fritatta. Bon appetit!
