These potato frittata squares are the perfect as an appetiser or party nibble. They are delicious warm from the oven and at room temperature, which makes them perfect for a party as you can get them ready in advance.

(They also work fabulously in a lunchbox!)

It is sort of a spanish omelette but with a few extra ingredients in it! So we start with the eggs and the potato, but I have added plenty of cheese, some chives for a nice sweet onion hit and then some herbaceous basil which works so well with cheese and potato. All folded together and then baked in the oven.

Yup oven baked potato frittata. Isn’t the perfect for the holiday season!

This recipe is inspired by an omelette that I had at a coffee shop near the boys school. It was a potato, spring onion, basil and ricotta omelette. They served it with some sour cream and a seared hot smoked salmon steak.
I think these potato frittata bites would be delicious with a dollop of sour cream and a ribbon of smoked salmon curled on top!!!!

But for my stress free last minute Christmas menu I wanted everything to be easily available in a supermarket, which I know smoked salmon is, but it is also an ingredient that our small supermarket often runs out of!!! If you want to add it on, I have given some extra instructions below the recipe, but I promise these little bites are delish without it!

I actually made this recipe for a big function a few weeks ago, I tripled the recipe as I was serving so many people. Having made this, sliced it, arranged it on a tray, driven 40 minutes with it in a cool box and unwrapped it and served it an hour later, I can without a doubt say this is also a great dish to take to a bring a dish or pot-luck party. It is a bit different and holds up to transportation. If you know you are going to have access to a kitchen when you get there, you might want to leave it in the baking tray, but sliced and placed on a silver tray it did really really well!!!

I love fairy lights!!!! And food!!!!

The key to making this pretty simple dish, look elegant is in the plating, yesterday I served it on a cake stand, the height and generous basil garnish gave it a bit of grandeur. So much prettier than just a square on a plate. If you do want to plate this to serve it, then you might want to add a little dressed green salad on the side, just to make it stand out. After all we eat with our eyes first 😉

Servings: 4 -6
Author: Claire | Sprinkles and Sprouts
Ingredients
  • 45 g butter
  • 1 large potato (I use Nicola potatoes but Yukon Gold would be a good choice too)
  • 125 g mature cheddar
  • 3 large eggs
  • 150 g ricotta cheese
  • 3 tbsp chopped chives
  • small handful fresh basil leaves
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • large pinch cracked black pepper
  • 1 1/2 tbsp plain flour
  • 1/4 tsp baking powder
Instructions
  1. Preheat the oven to 170ºC/350ºF.
  2. Peel your potatoes and cut into small dice.
  3. Melt about a third of the butter into a frying pan, add the potatoes and fry them over a low heat for 15 minutes until just cooked through.
  4. Whilst the potatoes are cooking, cut the cheddar into smallish chunks and process it in the food processor until you have a cheesy 'crumb'. Add the eggs, ricotta, basil, chives, salt and pepper and pulse until well combined.
  5. Sprinkle over the flour and baking powder and pulse blitz again.
  6. Line the base of a small baking tray (20x12cm) with cooking paper.
  7. Tip the potatoes into the baking tray so you have an even spread.
  8. Pour over the the egg mixture and bake for 15-20 minutes until the frittata is browned and cooked through.
  9. Cut into 8 squares and serve with some fresh basil garnish.
Recipe Notes

If you want to serve these with a a dollop of sour cream and a ribbon of smoked salmon, I would buy the smallest sour cream you can and 100g of smoked salmon.

Cook as normal and then allow to cool to room temperature.
Just before you serve spoon on the sour cream and curl a piece of smoked salmon on top. Maybe use any left over chives as a little garnish.

    Hi Claire! These sound delicious! Ideal with a glass of bubbly. In the ingredients you say one potato…what variety did you use and approximately how big?

      Hi Dorothy xx
      Isn’t everything perfect with a glass of bubbly 😉

      I have updated the recipe, trying to get so many out as I am in the last minute Christmas rush!
      I use a good all round potato, here they tend to be Nicola potatoes, but over there I would say the Yukon Gold would be the best choice. You want something with a bit of waxiness about it, but still soft enough to meld perfectly with the egg.

      Size wise I would say a large potato. When peeled and chopped it is probably about a cup, maybe a little less xx
