Now just imagine what happens when you say this word Frittata to a roomful of high school students. They think it is hilarious. I love it! This was a staple at my house even before I knew what a Frittata was. If you have eggs you can do this. This is your go to meal when you have about thirty minutes to get a meal on the table and you don’t want another sandwich or a bowl of cereal. If you have leftover pan roasted potatoes or hash browns it will be even faster to put together.
Here’s what I did for my high school students. I used a bag of Simply Potatoes shredded hash browns, leftover deli ham, a few green onions, shredded cheese, and six beaten eggs. They all thought that I was a magician. Ha!
