Squash Blossom & Potato Frittata




MEDIUM heat an ovenproof nonstick frying pan or cast-iron skillet.


ADD olive oil + potatoes, and saute for 7 mins, occasionally stirring until potatoes are soft sliced pieces = al dente.


TURN heat to low and add summer squash + chives – stir and move ingredients to form an even layer over the base of the frying pan.


CUT off base from blossoms removing inner stamen. Open out petals and lay them out as shown in the picture gallery.


CRACK your eggs into a bowl, add salt and pepper, and whisk well.


POUR whisked eggs even over ingredients in the frypan and let cook on low for 2 mins. 


PLACE the frying pan in the oven and cook for 7-15 mins. Check after 5 mins; eggs should be set and lightly golden on top.


SERVE with cherry tomatoes + sliced cucumber, and white balsamic vinegar.
