Frittata with Potato and Prosciutto


  • 4 tablespoons olive oil

  • 1 potato peeled, cut into 1/4-inch cubes

  • 0.5 onion chopped

  • 2 cloves garlic minced

  • salt and freshly ground black pepper

  • 6 large eggs

  • 0.25 cup heavy cream

  • 0.25 cup grated parmesan

  • 2 oz sliced prosciutto coarsely chopped

  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh basil leaves

  • 1 baguette cut into 8 pieces

  • 0.25 cup unsalted butter


  • 1.

    Heat the oil in a heavy 9 1/2-inch-diameter skillet over medium heat. Add the potato, onion, and garlic. Season the potato mixture with salt and pepper, to taste. Saute over medium-low heat until the potato is golden and crisp on the outside, tender inside, about 7 to 10 minutes.

    Preheat the broiler. Whisk the eggs, cream, Parmesan, prosciutto, and basil in a medium bowl to blend. Stir the egg mixture into the potato mixture in the skillet. Cook over medium-low heat until the egg mixture is almost set but the top is still loose, about 3 minutes. Place the skillet under the broiler. Broil until the top is set and golden brown, about 4 minutes. Using a rubber spatula, loosen the frittata from skillet and slide the frittata onto a cutting board. Cut the frittata into 12 wedges.

    Split open each bread piece. Toast the bread on a grill pan until golden. You can also broil the bread cut side up until golden, about 1 to 2 minutes, keeping a careful watch on the bread since they can easily burn. Butter the cut sides of the toasted bread. Arrange a frittata wedge on each bottom piece of bread. Cover with the bread tops and serve.
