1Heat the broiler on high and arrange a rack in the middle.
2Whisk the eggs, 1 cup of the cheese, and the measured salt and pepper in a large bowl until the eggs are smooth; set aside.
3Heat the oil in a large, ovenproof frying pan over medium heat. When it shimmers, add the onion and season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally, until tender, about 4 minutes. Add the potato and cook, stirring occasionally, until the edges become tender, about 4 minutes. Add the bell peppers and garlic and cook, stirring occasionally, until just tender, about 8 minutes. Add the parsley and stir to incorporate.
4Pour the reserved egg mixture over the vegetables and reduce the heat to medium low. Cook until the eggs are set around the outer inch of the pan, about 10 to 15 minutes. Sprinkle the remaining cheese evenly over the frittata and place it under the broiler until puffed, golden, and completely set in the center, about 4 to 6 minutes. Let sit 5 minutes before serving.
Sweet potatoes are absolutely marvelous—they’re incredibly versatile, naturally sweet, loaded with nutrients and fiber, and low in calories. Really, what’s not to love? Here, they're simply sliced and cooked to make the perfect crust for a quiche.
Sweet Potato Casserole
This is not your mother's sweet potato casserole (and that's a good thing). This version is only lightly sweetened, tender rather than gloppy or mushy, and accented with a hint of ginger. It's still topped with browned, gooey marshmallows, though, because some traditions are worth sticking to.
Easy Potato Skins
Loaded potato skins are a perfect package: crunchy scooped-out spud shells filled with gooey, melted sharp cheddar cheese, crispy bacon, and tangy sour cream. A classic bar snack or game day food, these are great any other time too, including for an easy dinner (just add a salad if you feel the need for a little more green than what the chives bring to the table).
Doesn’t this frittata make you want to sit on your porch and watch the sun rise over the Smoky Mountains? This seasonal breakfast recipe has everything that your next brunch needs – protein-rich eggs, creamy cheese, and a hearty helping of squash.
Molecularly Creamy Mashed Potatoes
The traditional way to make creamy mashed potatoes is to add loads of butter and cream. But that can hide the flavor of the potatoes, so in this episode of MDRN KTCHN, host Scott Heimendinger explains how a common ingredient called diastatic malt powder can be used to make incredibly smooth and creamy mashed potatoes on the molecular level. You can check out the full recipe here, and buy diastatic malt powder here. Want to learn more?
