(FAQs) for the potato and cilantro frittata recipe:

Can I use regular potatoes instead of mini potatoes? Yes, you can use regular potatoes instead of mini potatoes. Simply peel and thinly slice the regular potatoes to ensure they cook evenly.

Can I substitute cilantro with another herb? Absolutely! If you’re not a fan of cilantro, you can substitute it with parsley, chives, dill, or any other herb of your choice.

Can I add other ingredients to the frittata? Of course! Frittatas are very versatile, so feel free to add ingredients like bell peppers, spinach, tomatoes, mushrooms, or cooked bacon for additional flavor and texture.

How do I store leftovers? Leftover frittata can be stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 3-4 days. Simply reheat individual slices in the microwave or oven before serving.

Can I freeze the frittata? Yes, you can freeze the frittata for longer storage. Wrap individual slices tightly in plastic wrap or aluminum foil, then place them in a freezer-safe bag or container. Thaw overnight in the refrigerator before reheating.

Can I make this recipe ahead of time? Absolutely! You can prepare the frittata ahead of time and refrigerate it overnight. When ready to serve, simply reheat it in the oven or microwave until warmed through.

Can I omit the olive oil? While olive oil adds flavor and helps prevent sticking, you can omit it if desired. Just make sure to use a non-stick skillet or coat the skillet with cooking spray to prevent the frittata from sticking.

Can I use a different cooking method instead of stovetop? Yes, if you prefer, you can cook the frittata entirely in the oven or use a combination of stovetop and oven methods for cooking. Adjust cooking times accordingly.

How can I tell when the frittata is fully cooked? The frittata is fully cooked when the eggs are set in the center and no longer runny. You can gently shake the skillet to check for firmness, or insert a knife into the center – if it comes out clean, the frittata is ready.

Is this recipe suitable for vegetarians? Yes, this potato and cilantro frittata recipe is vegetarian-friendly as it does not contain any meat or animal products.

Course: Breakfast
Cuisine: American, Spanish
Keyword: breakfast, eggs, frittata, morning
Yield: 8


  • 8 eggs
  • 2 cups mini potatoes thinly sliced
  • 1/2 cup fresh cilantro chopped
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • Salt and pepper to taste


  • Cook Potatoes: In a large non-stick skillet, heat 1 tablespoon of olive oil over medium heat. Add the sliced mini potatoes and cook until they're golden brown and tender, about 10-12 minutes. Remove from the skillet and set aside.
  • Prepare Egg Mixture: In a large bowl, whisk together the eggs, chopped cilantro, salt, and pepper.
  • Combine Ingredients: Add the cooked potatoes to the egg mixture and stir gently to combine.
  • Cook Frittata: In the same skillet, add the remaining tablespoon of olive oil and heat it over medium heat. Pour the egg and potato mixture into the skillet and spread it out evenly. Cover the skillet with a lid and cook for about 10-15 minutes, or until the frittata is set in the center.
  • Serve: Once the frittata is fully cooked, remove it from the heat and let it cool for a few minutes before slicing. Serve warm or at room temperature, garnished with additional chopped cilantro if desired.


By cooking the frittata entirely on the stovetop, you'll still achieve a delicious dish with the flavors of potato and cilantro. Just ensure that the heat is evenly distributed and that the frittata cooks through without burning.
