Ham, Pepper, and Potato Frittata


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!
