Potato, Bacon, and Parmesan Frittata
- In a covered medium saucepan cook the potatoes in enough boiling lightly salted water to cover about 10 minutes or just until tender. Drain; set aside.
- Meanwhile, preheat broiler. In a large broilerproof skillet with flared sides cook bacon over medium-high heat until starting to crisp. Add onion; cook about 5 minutes or until tender. Stir in the cooked potatoes.
- In a medium bowl whisk together eggs, Parmesan cheese, the 2 tablespoons parsley, the salt, and pepper. Pour egg mixture over potato mixture. Cook over medium-low heat. As mixture sets, run a spatula around edge of skillet, lifting egg mixture so uncooked portion flows underneath. Continue cooking and lifting edges until egg mixture is almost set (surface will be moist).
- Place skillet under the broiler, 4 to 5 inches from heat. Broil for 1 to 2 minutes or until top is set and no longer wet. (Or, preheat oven to 400 degrees F and bake about 5 minutes or until top is set and no longer wet.) Let stand for 5 minutes. Slide frittata out onto a serving platter. If desired, sprinkle with additional parsley.
