I always have leftover French fries when I choose them as a side at lunch. And you feel guilty if you don’t take them with you. But you also aren’t sure if you’ll eat them. Maybe I overthink the whole thing, but whether to take my fries with me is often a source of low-level stress. Anyway, a couple years ago it occurred to me that fries are just pre-cooked potatoes. And that leftover fries are a great time-saver when you’re trying to get a meal done fast. So now I make a French fry frittata when the mood strikes. My mom always tells me that sounds disgusting. And that I shouldn’t share this shame with the world. But here it is!
French fry frittata
- 1/2 onion, chopped
- leftover French fries
- 3 eggs
- 2 tablespoons milk
- 1/4 cup shredded mozzarella
Heat up some olive oil in a frittata pan and saute your onions over medium heat! (Use the smaller of the frittata pans, or you’ll have a little mess later)
Chop up those French fries!
That looks delicious! Now just cook until the bottom is browned. Flip it out onto a plate.
And serve with salsa and sour cream!
