Spray pan and arrange potato slices on bottom. Microwave potato slices for 2 minutes to soften a bit. (If you are not using a microwave safe pan do this first on a separate plate.) frittata recipe with potato crust

Microwave frozen spinach until thawed and press out excess water. I put mine in the center of a clean dish towel and ring it out. It makes the towel green, you’ve been warned.

Question: Does anyone else think it’s weird eggs aren’t considered meat by the definition of the vegetarian label?

I mean they’re kinda whole chicken…


  1. Gillian says

    Technically the eggs aren’t anything yet since they aren’t fertilized. They are like the eggs we women shed monthly (which, as we know, aren’t human babies). As a vegetarian I have to remind myself of that so I feel less guilty using eggs!

  2. Jessica says

    An egg is not a whole chicken anymore than a woman’s egg is a whole person.
    I had to explain to a coworker a while back that hens will not produce babies alone. She insisted for 20 minutes that you don’t need a rooster to make chicks.

  3. says

    When you say green chillies – do you mean the spicy ones? I mean over here green chillies are the super spicy hot ones used to make curry.

  4. Sarah says

    Yum! I wonder if I could prep all this the night before and stick it in the fridge so I could pop it in the oven in the morning? I cook eggs for my husband and I every morning as it is, but I only have the mental capacity to handle scrambled eggs at 5:15am. This could help switch things up a bit!

  5. says

    Looks great! I always thought the fish/vegetarian thing was weird too…I mean fish were alive.
    It took me a long time to eat eggs because every time I crakced one, I would think, man this is a chicken fetus I’m eating…. I’m over it now :)

  6. says

    Wow that’s super easy! Definitely trying this. Thanks for the recipe! And, I’m with you on the ketchup. I don’t care what anyone says, there’s no such thing as “one serving” of ketchup, ever. 😉

  7. Jen says

    I have a pet parrot and she started laying eggs recently. It took a lot of explaining to my husband as to why there would be no baby birds since we don’t have a male bird! I used the same analogy as a lady’s cycle to clarify fertilized egg vs non. Ha what if we could carry around an egg rather than do the whole pregnancy/birth thing?
