  1. Perfect for a rushed weeknight supper. Great idea! I’d have to sub chives for the scallions since I ALWAYS forget to buy them but have a container of chives growing outside.

    Now, to share with our CSA customers. They’re gonna love this one!

  2. It looks great. Do you start with raw potatoes? I usually cook my potatoes first when adding them to dishes like this. Just wondering.

  3. Can I come to your house for breakfast =)! Breakfast foods are some of my favorites and I love making them for dinner. This looks awesome! I love loaded baked potatoes and this is simply genius.

  4. When you partially cook on the stove, do you stir or just let it sit over the stove and NOT stir? That’s the only part I’m confused about. Looks delicious and I’m pinning to make later!!

    1. No, do not stir the frittata. You just want it to set up before putting it in the oven. I updated the recipe. I hope it is more clear!

  5. I had all ingredients at home and I made thus frittata on Tuesday. Hubby and I both loved it so much! Thank you for sharing the recipe

  6. I baked the potatoes before frying them because I find that makes them extra crispy. I am all about the crisp. I substituted purple onion and leeks for green onions because that is what I had. I caramelized them first before adding them into the mix. It was a loaded frittata, enjoyed by all. Thanks for the great recipe.

  7. I saw this post the other day and was inspired to pull out my cast iron skillet and make my own frittata with some leftover chorizo and sweet potatoes that I had in my fridge. It turned out great! Thanks for the inspiration and for reminding me how GREAT a cast iron skillet is!! ๐Ÿ™‚

  8. Made this this morning and is very yummy. However be warned that potatoes cannot be cooked in a skillet in 5 minutes. I cooked mine for over then 10 min and they were starting to burn before they got tender in the inside. I had to boil mine first then fry them in the skillet. And I cut them in small cubes as it appeared in the pictures…

  9. Thanks for the post! I made this for dinner tonight with a salad…kids ate it up quick! I will certainly make this again ๐Ÿ™‚ Thanks!

  10. Made this today but used American cheese in place of cheddar since it was what I had on hand. My husband absolutely loved this recipe.

  12. Hi Maria and Josh,

    Thank you for sharing this delicious recipe! I prepared it as instructed. When my boyfriend finished eating an 8 x 8 pan (in one setting), he said โ€œget on the computer and thank that blogger!โ€ LOL. This recipe is definitely being added to our list of favorites.

    Best,
    Kara

    1. How did you do the stove part in a 8X8 pan or did you just bake it for longer & not have it set up on the stove?


  13. I’m a big fan of frittata’s for dinner and this is a really good recipe! ย I’m saving it as a good base recipe to adapt in the future – thanks so much.ย
