One Local Summer Week #2 - Potato Onion Frittata

So far, my local meals seem to be comprised of left-overs thrown together for a last minute supper.

This week I used a couple of BC grown baked potatoes that I had sitting in the fridge (the kids and I often have them for a quick and easy lunch). I sauteed one of last year's onions in a little butter, added the chopped potatoes and stirred them together until the potatoes were lightly browned. Then I whipped together several local free range eggs with a splash of milk, salt, and pepper, and poured it over the top, along with some cilantro from the garden and a sprinkling of cubed cheese. I left it on the stovetop (covered) until it started to set around the edges, and then I popped it under the broiler for a couple of minutes to finish cooking and to brown the top. We served it with a little sour cream and homemade salsa.

Except for the salt and pepper, all of the ingredients came from within the province, the milk products all coming from the local dairy.

This was a real hit with my son, who has been begging me to make another one ever since!

Oh, man! That sounds YUMMY! I love when I find a dish that my kids ask me to fix again. My ten year old is so particular, it's hard to find anythng she likes.

That looks really yummy. I have not made a frittata before, but might just try one. We are having omelettes using left over onions from last evenings party. Now I am really looking forward to that. I went to your links, since I wasn't around when you posted them. Good posts.

Looks delish. My attempt at local meals have also been a hodge podge of leftovers and cast-offs from other peoples gardens, but they taste good and feel right.
