Kale, Potato and Onion Frittata

I had such high hopes for this recipe. I noticed when I was making it that there wasn’t any cheese involved, and not a whole lot of seasoning. That should have been a clue for me. This dish was B-land. I went to the fridge and got out some feta cheese, and we all sprinkled some on top of our frittata, and that did make it a lot better. One thing I did learn from this recipe, though…Liam likes kale! I served this with a green salad and French rolls.

  1. When our fritatas are bland — not that they EVER are — we find salsa helps.
