The potato frittata is nothing more than a nonna’s recipe, especially in Southern Italy.

If you go to a grandma’s house, you can smell the scent of eggs and potatoes, which floods the whole house. It could be an ideal appetizer, or you can eat it just for lunch in the office; my daughter Clelia likes to bring a frittata sandwich to school.

Potato frittata is a delicious and versatile dish made with eggs, potatoes, and other ingredients. Here's a basic recipe to make a potato frittata:


Cooking Mode Disabled


    • After peeling and washing the potatoes, cut them into cubes.
    • Heat the frying oil in a pan, and as soon as it is hot, dip the potatoes in it and cook until they become golden.
    • Meanwhile, beat the eggs with salt, pepper, parsley, and cheese.
    • When the potatoes are golden, pour them into the egg mixture, remove the oil, and dry the pan well.
    • First of all, it is essential to use a non-stick pan.
    • Once the pan is on fire, add the extra virgin oil and raise the heat.
    • Pour the frittata mixture into the pan.
    • Make sure that the mixture is distributed evenly over the entire surface of the pan.
    • When a crust has formed at the edges, you can lower the heat and cover the pan with a lid.
    • This way, the frittata will cook faster, even in the upper part.
    • My way to turn the frittata is to use a plate.
    • Take a large, flat plate and place it on your pan, making sure it is firmly in place. Then, simply place one hand on the plate and the other on the handle and rotate the pan so the frittata will settle on the dish.
    • Put the pan back on the heat and slide the frittata down from the plate, making it come back inside the pan so it will also cook on the other side.
