Ingredients

  • 2 medium potatoes

  • 6 large eggs

  • ¼ cup whole milk

  • ¼ cup crumbled feta cheese

  • ¼ teaspoon salt

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil

  • ¼ medium onion, chopped

  • 2 cups callaloo leaves and soft stems, finely chopped

  • Cracked black pepper for garnish

  • 8 slices whole-grain toast

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F.

  2. Bring a small pot of water to a boil. Peel potatoes and cut into 1/2-inch pieces. Add the potatoes to the boiling water and cook until tender, about 7 minutes. Drain; set aside.

  3. Whisk eggs in a medium bowl. Add milk, feta and salt; whisk to combine.

  4. Heat oil in a well-seasoned 10-inch cast-iron skillet over medium-low heat. Add onion; cook, stirring constantly, until softened, about 1 minute. Add greens; cook, stirring, until wilted, 2 to 3 minutes. Add the potatoes; cook, stirring frequently, until the potatoes are dry, about 1 minute. Pour in the egg mixture; mix until the greens and potatoes are evenly distributed. Cook, undisturbed, for 5 minutes.

  5. Transfer the skillet to the oven and bake until the middle is just set, 15 to 20 minutes.

  6. Season the frittata with cracked pepper, if desired. Slice into 4 pieces and serve with toast.

Nutrition information is calculated by a registered dietitian using an ingredient database but should be considered an estimate.

* Daily Values (DVs) are the recommended amounts of nutrients to consume each day. Percent Daily Value (%DV) found on nutrition labels tells you how much a serving of a particular food or recipe contributes to each of those total recommended amounts. Per the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the daily value is based on a standard 2,000 calorie diet. Depending on your calorie needs or if you have a health condition, you may need more or less of particular nutrients. (For example, it’s recommended that people following a heart-healthy diet eat less sodium on a daily basis compared to those following a standard diet.)
