Cheesy Tuna & Potato Frittata

You are in a rush but need a quick healthy meal? The Fritatta is for you! You can make so many different Fritatta’s -from vegetable, cheese, ham, salmon, tomato and cheese, ….the list goes on!

The word “frittata,” which derives from the Italian verb “friggere,” or “to fry,” connotes the simplicity and pleasures of cucina povera—the “humble cuisine” that most of us innately love. Egg is the main ingredient. With its high protein and mineral content, easy availability and low cost, eggs are an essential part of the diet almost everywhere in the world.

As long as you have eggs and milk in the kitchen (and who doesn’t?!) you have the base of the recipe.
