Treat Yo’ Self and Your Besties This Galentine’s Day with a Frittata!

February 13, 2014

Before you dedicate your time and attention tomorrow to your significant other, Galentine’s Day is the holiday to celebrate that special friendship you get from your lady friends. Usually over brunch. To quote Leslie Knope of Community (and creator of the holiday), “It’s like Lilith Fair minus the angst. Plus frittatas!”

In celebration of the holiday, here’s a frittata recipe (from lady Martha Stewart) to make and share with your girlfriends. We suggest garnishing with red pepper slices in the shape of a heart.

Galentine’s Frittata (Potato and Red-Pepper Frittata)

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1/2 medium onion, thinly sliced
  • 1 red bell pepper, stem, ribs, and seeds removed, then thinly sliced in strips
  • 2 russet potatoes (about 1 pound), peeled and cut into thin slices
  • Coarse salt and ground pepper
  • 8 large eggs
  • 2 teaspoons chopped fresh rosemary
  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. In an 8-inch ovenproof nonstick skillet, heat 1 teaspoon oil over medium heat. Add onion and bell pepper, and cook, stirring occasionally, until onion is lightly browned, about 5 minutes. Transfer to a bowl; set aside.
  2. Heat remaining 2 teaspoons oil in skillet. Add potatoes; season generously with salt and pepper. Cook over medium heat, tossing often, until potatoes are tender and lightly browned, about 10 minutes. Transfer potatoes to bowl with onion mixture; toss to combine. Return mixture to skillet; flatten with a metal spatula.
  3. In a large bowl, beat eggs with rosemary, 1/2 teaspoon salt, and 1/8 teaspoon pepper. Pour over potato mixture; tilt pan to distribute evenly. Bake until set, 15 to 20 minutes. Cut into wedges, and serve.
