A frittata is a flat omelette. Serve either hot or cold, cut in wedges. You can vary the fillings - try leek and bacon, or smoked salmon and chives - but the method stays the same.

1 tbsp (15 mL) vegetable oil
2 tbsp (25 mL) butter
2 potatoes, peeled and cubed
1 tbsp (15 mL) chopped fresh rosemary or 1 tsp (5 mL) dried
Salt and freshly ground pepper
1 bunch spinach
10 eggs
¼ cup (50 mL) whipping cream
½ cup (125 mL) grated Gruyère cheese
½ cup (125 mL) chopped chives

1. In a 10-inch (25-cm) skillet on medium-high heat, heat oil and 1 tbsp (15 mL) butter. Add potatoes and sauté until brown and tender, about 8 to 10 minutes. Sprinkle with rosemary, season with salt and pepper and reserve. Wipe out skillet.

2. Wash and stem spinach. Place in saucepan on medium-high heat. Cover and steam until spinach is tender, about 2 minutes. Place spinach in colander, cool slightly then squeeze out all excess water. Chop.

3. In a large bowl, stir together eggs, cream, cheese, chives, salt and pepper. Add potatoes and spinach.

4. Preheat broiler to high. Place skillet on medium-low heat and add remaining butter. When melted, add egg mixture. Cook slowly until bottom is set, stirring occasionally, about 10 minutes. The top will be slightly liquid.

5. Place skillet under broiler and broil until top is just set. Turn out onto serving platter and cut in wedges. Garnish with a chive flower, if available.
