Expert Tips

Beat the Eggs Well: Whisk the eggs thoroughly to incorporate air, which makes the frittata light and fluffy. Mix in cheese, herbs, and seasonings for an extra taste before pouring over the potatoes.

Let It Rest: After removing the frittata from the oven, let it rest for a few minutes before slicing. This helps it set and makes it easier to cut into clean, neat slices.

Potato Frittata


  • Potatoes: Choose starchy potatoes like Russets or Yukon Golds, sliced thinly for even cooking. They give the frittata texture.
  • Eggs: Fresh eggs work best, holding the frittata together and adding protein.
  • Cherry Tomatoes: Pick ripe tomatoes for sweetness and visual appeal.
  • Double Cream: Use full-fat cream for richness and creaminess.
  • Olive Oil: Extra virgin olive oil is best for cooking and enhancing.
  • Grated Mozzarella or Parmesan: Grate fresh cheese for good taste and texture.
  • Paprika: Smoked paprika adds depth with a hint of smokiness.
  • Garlic Granules: Choose quality granules for a strong garlic taste.
  • Salt & Pepper: Season gradually to enhance overall appeal.
  • Basil or Parsley: Fresh herbs add freshness and visual interest to the dish.
