French fry frittata!

Leftover french fries? Turn them into a french fry frittata!

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!

IMG_0885Add them fries to the pan once the onions are cooked!

IMG_0887Sprinkle some cheese on top of that shit!

IMG_0888Beat those eggs with those tablespoons of milk!  Salt that shit!

IMG_0886Pour the eggs over the potato/onion/cheese deliciousness!

IMG_0889Cook until it looks like the top of the frittata is starting to set up!

IMG_0890Now, here’s where you’ll be glad you have a frittata pan set!  Put the second pan on top of the first.

IMG_0892And flip yo’ shit!


That looks delicious!  Now just cook until the bottom is browned.  Flip it out onto a plate.


And serve with salsa and sour cream!

    I’ll tell you what! That was yummy! I must have had more fries then you cause I had to use 4 eggs. I added a little garlic at the end of the onion. And a few different cheeses cause I had so many open already. Plus I finished it in the oven.. my husband really liked it too, had 2 helpings, and he wasn’t very enthusiastic when I told him what it was. The leftovers will be great with breakfast. Thank you!

      I’m glad you liked it! My frittatas are different every time I make them. They’re such an easy way to use whatever you have in the fridge, aren’t they?
