- 300grs potato (thinly sliced)
- 2 large onions (thinly sliced).
- 3 garlic cloves (thinly sliced).
- 6 medium beefy tomatoes (sliced)
- 6 eggs (mixed not beaten).
- 1 red bell pepper (thinly sliced).

Is really simple, frittata is like an omelette finished in the oven, only that the eggs are not beaten so making like a firmer omelette rather than fluffy, so when mixing the eggs make sure they're just mixed no froth please. The frittata also normally made in a frying pan than cook the bottom of the omelette and then is finished in the oven or grill, due to the size of mine I done it all in the oven in a large dish.
Stick a frying pan on the stove, with a little olive oil that once hot you add to it the onion, the pepper, the garlic and chilli. Let these cook until golden then add 1 of the tomatoes cut into small pieces (keeping the remaining 5 to place on top of the frittata) also add the seasoning (salt and black pepper, add also the potato and a half glass of water, once boiling reduce to minimum, place a lid on top and let the potato cook through but to the point only that it is still firm, meanwhile place a pirex dish in the oven with a little olive oil at around 150c.
In a bowl place the eggs mix them (no froth remember) and once mixed add the potato mixture, give it a swirl so that the whole mixture is involved with egg, take the tray out of the oven and pour mixture inside, as is very hot this will start the cooking of the bottom of the frittata, cover the top with the sliced tomatoes seasoning them too, and place it back in the oven raising the temp to 200c, should be done within 20 minutes, and that's it serve it with a salad, or any other accompaniment of your choice, or eat it on it's own up to you...is delicious simple and fast to make, excellent when you on the go. "bon apetit" :)
