Gluten-Free Potato Frittata

Gluten-free potato frittata is a perfect example of the simplicity of a frittata. Even if you only have potatoes, eggs and cheese, you are still able to make a delicious meal that everyone will love. A frittata is simply a thick omelette with layers of very thinly sliced potato, eggs, gruyere or swiss cheese and herbs all baked together in a cast iron pan. A classic Spanish frittata is a deep omelette containing sliced potatoes and possible a little onion. An Italian frittata can contain any meat, cheese and vegetables you have on hand, including potatoes and pasta.

This gluten-free potato frittata is Spanish style because it is made with just potatoes and eggs. A frittata is perfect for a weekend brunch or a dinner entree served with a side salad. It is best served at room temperature or even cold which means it can be enjoyed anytime of the day.

WHAT INGREDIENTS YOU NEED TO MAKE THIS FRITTATA:

  • 4-5 medium sized potatoes

You can cook this frittata entirely in a cast iron pan on the stove, but I like to broil it in the oven in the end. Probably the best part about frittatas or other egg dishes like quiches is how well they keep for days in the fridge. Frittata is elegant enough for dinner with friends or brunch at Easter time.

TIPS TO MAKE POTATO FRITTATA:

Cook potatoes gently in plenty of avocado or olive oil. You’ll need to start with at least 2-3 Tbsp of oil to cook the potatoes. You will be frying the potatoes in batches so add more oil each time you add a new batch. Fry potatoes until golden brown, then flip each potato and continue frying. Remove potato slices and place on a paper towel. Don’t worry about the amount of oil because you drain each batch of potatoes on a paper towel.

This gluten-free potato frittata is perfect for weekend brunch or even dinner with a salad. Add a salad like my simple caprese salad, cauliflower and orange salad with lemony dressing or a quinoa salad. All would be terrific with the frittata.

HOW TO MAKE POTATO FRITTATA:

  1. Add avocado oil to an oven proof frying pan. I like to use my Le Crueset pan for this.

  3. Cook potatoes in batches and once fried place on a paper towel to drain.
  4. Add more oil and fry shallots until golden brown.
  5. Add fried potato slices and arrange in frying pan.
  6. In a small bowl beat eggs with a hand mixer.
  7. Add the dried herbs to the eggs and pour mixture into the cast iron pan.
  8. Cook on stovetop on low heat for 4-5 minutes.
  9. Preheat oven to broil.
  10. Sprinkle cheese on eggs and place pan in oven.
  11. Watch closely and broil for 3-5 minutes.
  12. Use oven mitts and carefully remove frying pan.
  13. Let frittata cool and serve warm.
