Rainbow Chard–Potato Frittata

Scott Phillips

Servings: 6

Adding potatoes to a frittata makes it filling enough for dinner, especially if paired with a green salad. The frittata also makes a great appetizer and is tasty at room temperature.


  • 6 oz. rainbow chard
  • 2 Tbs. canola oil
  • 1/2 tsp. finely chopped fresh rosemary
  • 1 lb. Yukon Gold potatoes, peeled and grated (about 3 cups)
  • 1/2 medium sweet onion, finely chopped
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 medium clove garlic, finely chopped
  • 1/4 tsp. crushed red pepper flakes
  • 10 large eggs
  • 6 oz. grated aged Gouda (about 2 cups)

  • Position a rack in the center of the oven and heat the oven to 400°F. Separate the chard stems from the leaves and slice each 1/4 inch thick.
  • Heat the oil in a 12-inch oven-safe nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add the rosemary and cook, stirring, until aromatic, about 10 seconds. Add the chard stems, potatoes, onion, 3/4 tsp. salt, and 1/4 tsp. pepper and cook, stirring only occasionally, until browned in spots, about 7 minutes. Remove from the heat, stir in the garlic and red pepper flakes, and spread evenly in the skillet.
  • Lightly beat the eggs in a medium bowl. Mix in the chard leaves and cheese, and evenly pour over the potatoes. Transfer the skillet to the oven and bake until the frittata is set, 15 to 20 minutes. Let cool slightly before serving.

You can play with the basic recipe, substituting other ingredient combos for the chard, rosemary, and cheese. Try one of these or create your own:

  • Spinach, chorizo, and goat cheese.
  • Green beans, basil (add it with the eggs), and mozzarella.
  • Artichoke hearts, thyme, and pecorino.

    It didn't seem "set" well the night I served it although fully cooked - was a bit odd in the middle. I cooked in cast iron pan and it stuck a bit (I guess I need to reseason my pan!). Yet leftovers reheated in the oven were delicious!! Would make again and perhaps the swiss chard leaves gave too much wetness?

    Just checking.....when the recipe calls for grated potatoes, does mean finely grated like lemon zest or Parmesan cheese or shredded like hash browns or Kraft cheddar cheese into fine or medium about 1-inch long thin or medium shreds?

    To amend my previous review, I now use a Calphalon nonstick skillet and have no trouble with the frittata sticking. I just tried this recipe with asparagus, thyme, roasted red peppers, and fontina. Another good combination.
