Spanish Frittata

Spanish Frittata

This frittata is a glorious mash-up of the Spanish tortilla and a breakfast hash. It’s full of potatoes, ripe tomatoes, mushrooms, basil, and garlic for a satisfying, light breakfast that’s so healthy you can feel good about going back in for seconds.

That said, on mornings when we’re extra hungry or feeling indulgent, we like to throw a few slices of bacon or some chopped ham into the pan — and serve it with a buttery sourdough. Speaking of the pan, did we mention that this dish is a one-pan wonder? That’s a big bonus for a sleepy Sunday brunch.

More tips: Frittatas are not just for breakfast! Add a green salad and you’ve got a nice light dinner. And don’t worry about eating all those eggs. They’re full of protein and nutrients, a strong staple of a healthy Mediterranean diet.
