Potato and Courgette Frittata

A light, cheesy, fluffy meal - what's not to love?
  • 1 small russet potato, peeled and cut into 1/2-inch cubes
  • 4 large eggs
  • 2 egg whites
  • 2 tablespoons coarsely chopped fresh coriander leaves
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon hot sauce
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1 small onion, finely chopped
  • 1 small courgette, grated and squeezed dry in clean kitchen towel
  • 90g queso fresco or feta cheese
  • 2 strips cooked crumbled turkey bacon, optional

Bring the potatoes with enough cold water to cover to a boil in a small saucepan. Cook, over medium-high heat, until the potatoes are tender, 6 to 8 minutes; drain and pat dry.

Whisk together the eggs, egg whites, coriander, salt, and hot sauce in a large bowl.

Preheat the grill to medium-high.

Heat the oil in a medium (10-inch) ovenproof nonstick pan over medium-high heat. Add the garlic and onion and cook, stirring occasionally, until the onion is translucent, 2 minutes. Add courgette and cook until tender, about 6 minutes more. Add the cooked potatoes and cook, stirring occasionally, until the potatoes begin to brown slightly, about 4 minutes more.

Evenly pour the egg mixture over the vegetable mixture. Cook, over medium heat, tilting the pan and lifting the edges with a rubber spatula to let the uncooked egg flow underneath. Sprinkle with the cheese and the bacon, if using. Broil, 5 to 7 inches from the heat, until the eggs puff and are just set and the cheese is golden brown, about 5 minutes. Remove carefully to a plate, or serve in wedges directly from the pan.
