Potato Chip Frittata

Have I gone off the deep end? Perhaps, a little. But this actually kind of works. High-brow meets low-brow in this quick and dirty brunch dish that takes just minutes to prepare. Grana and Lay's? Match made in heaven. Who knows, though — perhaps it's just the salt.

Ingredients

  • 1 Tablespoon olive oil
  • 1/4 Cup grated Grana Padano
  • 1/4 Cup crushed potato chips, such as Lay's, plus more for garnish
  • 2 Cups eggs, beaten
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste

Directions

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.

Heat the olive oil in an 8-inch frying pan over medium heat. Mix the cheese and chips into the eggs just before adding to the pan, and season with salt and pepper, to taste. Cook until the edges just begin to set, about 30 seconds. Transfer to the oven and bake until the center is just set but jiggles slightly when the pan is shaken, about 4 minutes. Remove from the oven and serve garnished with additional potato chips.

Potato Chip Shopping Tip

Stocking up on no-cook items like cheese, nuts, olives, crackers, and dips are great snacks to have on hand.

Potato Chip Cooking Tip

When preparing snacks try to avoid repetition of similar foods and flavors - aim for variety in textures, colors, and cooking methods.
