Adopt a Gluten Free Blogger- Potato Crusted Frittata

I had a lot of fun with Adopt a Gluten Free Blogger that Book of Yum has started.  It gets me out of my own head and into that of fabulous cooks.  My new favorite book is Ali Stegersten’s Whole Life Nutrition Book.  It is a great resource and it was wonderful to have her guest blog last week.  Check out her recipe for Chocolate Chip Cookies.

The rules of the monthly adopt a gluten free blogger is to take one of their recipes, make it and share your experience by the 1st of the next month.  Well, looking at my calendar today I realized I was almost out of time and needed to get cracking.  I also found a carton of eggs that were getting close to their expiration date.  Yes, eggs have expiration dates when you buy them by the carton in the stores.  So I found a great frittata recipe which had a potato crust in Ali’s cookbook.  Potatoes are one of my favorite foods.

The recipe was easy to follow and quick to make.  I couldn’t find the pan it called for so I made mine in a large muffin tin.  I also don’t have cheese on hand of any kind so I omitted this.  It turned out  great!  I’m going to freeze the little frittatas and I’ll have a quick breakfast, lunch or dinner for those nights where I don’t want to cook or go out or I’m really pressed for time.  With running a business, writing two blogs, and making sure my teenager is where he needs to be, some nights a dinner from my freezer is a must.  It is nice to know when that happens that I don’t have to rely on a boxed meal or fast food take out.

I really liked this recipe and would recommend it.  So check out Whole Life Nutrition and Book of Yum blogs.

    Looks very tasty! It's a shame the recipe isn't available online but the pictures are certainly good advertisements for the book!

    The look awesome. I'm so glad that you shared that you made them dairy-free and they still turned out great. I love the frittata muffin concept! :-) I have Ali's cookbook and broccoli, etc. so I can't wait to try these. Thanks, Diane.

    Sea- I hope we'll see the recipe on Ali's blog. There certainly are other tasty ones. I need to get baking her cookies. I love all of these great blogs that are gluten free and dairy free options.
    Shirley- They were fun to make and I'm glad I joined in the Adopt a Gluten Free Blogger!
