Potato & Corn Frittata

Serving Size: 5
Prep Time:
Total Time:


  • 3 Tbsp olive oil
  • 1 cup coarsely shredded mozzarella or cheddar cheese (4 ounces)
  • 6 egg
  • 2 cup corn kernels
  • salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 0.25 tsp dried thyme
  • 1 large baking potato, peeled and diced
  • 2 scallions (green and white parts), chopped
  • 2 garlic clove, minced
  • 2 Tbsp fresh flat-leaf parsley


  1. Position an oven rack 3 inches from the broiler and preheat.
  2. Heat the oil in a large cast-iron skillet over medium heat, and add the garlic, scallions, potato, thyme, and salt and pepper to taste. Cover and cook for 5 minutes, resisting the urge to stir. Remove the lid, flip the mixture so the other side can brown, and then cook for 5 minutes longer. Add the corn and cook for a few minutes longer, to heat through.
  3. Beat the eggs in a medium bowl, then add the cheese, parsley, and salt and pepper. Pour into the skillet, stirring just to mix with the potatoes. Cook without stirring (shaking occasionally to loosen it) until the bottom is golden but the top is still runny, 8 to 10 minutes. Finish the frittata by placing it under the broiler and cooking about 2 minutes until the top is golden and set. Slide onto a serving plate.
