Potato and Zucchini Frittata

Frittatas are becoming very popular. You can put almost anything in them. Eggs are a must but you can go in your vegetable drawer and use up what you have. Also whatever cheese you like.

I found this recipe in the Food network website. I did alter it a little because I believe you can make any recipe your own. Everyone has different likes and some people may have food allergies or intolerances to certain foods. So go through the recipe you like and change what you need to change.

In this recipe it called for cilantro but I don't like the taste of it so I opted for fresh Italian parsley. It also called for hot sauce which my husband can't tolerate so I left that out and used fresh ground black pepper and it called for queso fresco but I used grated cheddar cheese.

It sounds like a lot of changes but it's not really. This recipe is good for breakfast or lunch or dinner. Also for brunch. I made this one for dinner and pared it with a fresh tomato and cucumber salad. The cucumbers are from our garden also just like the zucchini.

That's why frittatas are so popular, you can eat them just about anytime and use ingredients you and your family love. So give it a try and enjoy!

Tomato and Cucumber Side Salad

A nice summer salad and so simple is tomato and cucumber tossed with a little olive oil and a little of your favorite vinegar, salt and pepper and of course chopped basil.

It's also nice when you have them growing in your garden. My garden is shown below.

How To Make Zucchini Pizza

The recipe called for Pillsbury Crescent roll dough; but I used my own pizza dough (recipe follows). If using crescent dough, press seams together in prepared pan. I sprayed non stick spray on mine. If using pizza dough, just spread the dough out to fit the pan. If you follow the recipe right you should be able to spread it with your fingers.

Slice one large or two smaller zucchini in thin slices and slice a medium slice onion (or chop if you prefer) and chopped garlic (1 or 2 cloves) and saute in lightly greased pan. When they are soft spread them on the dough.

I like to prebake my dough first for about 10 minutes in 375 degree oven before spreading the zucchini on it. Slice tomatoes very thin; place them on the zucchini and onion mixture. You can also put very thin sliced pepperoni on if you wish at this point. and bake at 357 for another 10 minutes.

Take the pizza out and spread grated mozzarella cheese all over the top and put it back in the oven until the cheese is melted. Mangiaro Bene!

Basic Pizza Dough

  1. 2 packages dry yeast
  2. 1 cup warm water
  3. 2 1/2 to 3 cups all purpose flour
  4. 1 1/2 teaspoons salt
  5. 1 1/2 table spoons extra virgin olive oil

In a large bowl, combine the yeast with the water, oil and salt. Stir well. Let it sit for 5 minutes and add half of the flour and mix well. Add reaming flour, except 1/2 cup and continue to mix. Transfer dough to a lightly floured surface and knead the dough for 5 to 7 minutes using the remaing flour as needed. Dough should not be sticky.

Transfer dough to an oiled bowl and turn to coat with oil. Cover and let it sit for about an hour or until doubles in size. Divide dough and spread dough on pizza trays sprayed with non stick spray. Let it sit another 10 minutes and bake in oven for 10 minutes at 375 degrees. It will finish baking after you put it in the oven with the pizza ingredients.

You can cut this recipe in half in you only want one pizza.

      Both recipes sound nice, but I especially like the frittata. I think it would be delicious with the salad that you made.

      Thanks for sharing your two recipes with us. You are lucky that you are growing your zucchini, as well as other items in your garden. We use a lot of zucchini and wish I had the room in our garden to produce it.

      You are correct in that frittatas can be altered easily to suit one's taste. We do enjoy the flavor of cilantro, so we would probably use it instead of the parsley. Either herb would be tasty.

      Hi Rachel, I love frittata. Your version sounds delicious! I don't mind to adjust or alter a recipe to make sure everyone can enjoy the dish. I have had a zucchini frittata before at my mother-in-law's. She has a decent garden that grows zucchini, tomato, pepper, and cucumber. Your garden looks amazing! I'd love to have a small garden here if I could. I like to try to make a zucchini pizza. Thanks for sharing!
