Potato Frittata

This potato frittata is packed with fresh herbs and vegetables. Dill havarti adds a creamy, mild flavor to the dish. The frittata releases easily from the cast-iron pan, revealing a savory crust on the bottom that adds flavor and texture.

  • 12 large eggs

  • ½ cup half-and-half

  • ½ cup whole milk

  • ¾ cup shredded dill havarti cheese

  • 3 tablespoons chopped fresh herbs (such as chives, parsley and/or dill), plus more for garnish

  • 2 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese

  • ½ teaspoon kosher salt

  • ½ teaspoon ground pepper

  • ½ cup chopped pancetta (about 2 ounces)

  • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil

  • 1 cup chopped scrubbed Yukon Gold potatoes

  • ½ cup thinly sliced scallions

  • ½ cup chopped red bell pepper

  • 2 cups lightly packed baby spinach, coarsely chopped


  1. Preheat oven to 425°F. Whisk eggs, half-and-half, milk, havarti, herbs, Parmesan, salt and ground pepper together in a large bowl until combined.

  2. Cook pancetta and oil in a large cast-iron skillet over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until the pancetta is just golden, about 5 minutes. Add potatoes, scallions and bell pepper; cook, stirring occasionally, until the potatoes are golden and tender, about 6 minutes. Add spinach; cook, stirring occasionally, until wilted, about 1 minute.

  3. Pour the egg mixture over the vegetables in the pan, shaking the pan gently to evenly distribute the egg mixture over the vegetables. Cook, undisturbed, until the edges are just set, about 2 minutes.

  4. Transfer the pan to the oven; bake until the center is set, 12 to 15 minutes. Cut into 8 wedges and garnish with additional herbs, if desired.

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.)
