Bob's Your Uncle Potato Frittata

This delish, flexible dish doubles as a Saturday breakfast and a simple Sunday dinner. You could fry bacon or sausage, sauté the onions in the fat, and add the meat to the egg mix. Or add mushrooms and leftover roasted veggies like carrots, peppers and broccoli. Or swap out the potatoes for sweet potatoes, toss in leftover black beans + queso fresco, and Bob's your uncle!

1 lb peeled boiling potatoes, diced to 1/2"
2 tbsp olive oil
1  medium yellow or red onion, finely chopped
Your fave Saltllicker blend, about 2 tsp or to taste
6  large eggs

Put the potatoes in a steamer basket. When the water boils, cover, remove from heat, and steam for 10 minutes. Sauté the onion on medium high till soft. In a bowl, beat the eggs, add Saltlickers's spice, onions and potatoes. Heat the broiler. Heat 1 tbsp oil in an oven safe pan on medium high, pour in the egg stuff, lower heat to medium. As the frittata cooks, keep sliding a spatula underneath along the edges so it doesn't stick. Turn heat to low, cover for 10 minutes, uncover and slide the pan under the broiler until it gets a nice crisp crust.

Leftover Mashed Potato Pancakes

How much salt you put in depends on how salty the original mashed potatoes are. Most of our blends would work well. We used 1/2 tsp Cy Salt and 1/2 tsp Alliyum, but you could easily use 1/2 tbsp of each, if your potatoes are unsalted.

INGREDIENTS
2 c leftover mashed potatoes
1 egg
1/4 cup flour
1/2 tsp Cy Salt
1/2 tsp Alliyum
Butter, oil or shortening for frying

INSTRUCTIONS
Mix all the ingredients. Pancakes made from 1/4 of a cup of batter turn out best, we found. Heat fat in a big pan, fry both side on medium high heat. Dust with Alliyum. Reheat in a 400 degree oven for about 10 minutes.

WHAT’S THAT SAUCE?
Equal parts of our homemade horseradish and this salad, plus a big glob of mayo thrown in.
