Quick Potato & Shallot Frittata With Goat Cheese

On weekends I like to try and take a little time to make myself a nice breakfast, seeing weekdays it’s a grab and go type thing for me normally. Last weekend I threw together a mini frittata, and it was DELICIOUS and so easy to make. It all happens on the stovetop, with just a minute or so under the broiler to finish it off.

Ingredients: (serves 1)
3 eggs, beaten
Small splash of milk
2-3 small fingerling potatoes, very thinly sliced (I used my mandolin)
1 garlic clove, minced
1/4 small shallot, thinly sliced
Handful of fresh arugula
Small handful shaved Parmesan cheese
Crumbled goat cheese
Small pinch red pepper flakes
1/8 teaspoon white pepper

Add some olive oil to your skillet and sauté the garlic, shallot, potatoes, red pepper flakes, and white pepper until the potatoes are cooked through. Add the arugula and cook until wilted. Top with half the Parmesan cheese, then pour in the eggs. Top the eggs with the rest of the Parmesan cheese as well as the goat cheese. Cook over medium low heat, swirling the pan and lifting around the edges with a rubber spatula to allow the eggs to run under and disperse evenly. When the eggs are almost set, put the skillet under the broiler for 1-1/2 minutes to finish cooking the top of the eggs. Careful not to over cook though! Eggs always tend to cook a little past when you turn the heat off anyway, so I tend to cook them until a little soft then by the time they hit my plate they’ve continued cooking all the way, without overcooking them.
