It’s known that I love potatoes. Last night, all I had for dinner was mashed potatoes & gravy. So, I was excited when Klondike Brands contacted me to get the word out about their Pile on the Produce campaign.
I love making healthy choices in the kitchen (as much as I love cookies) so I had a ton of ideas of how I could combine red skin potatoes with other produce. I was going to make a version of chicken & dumplings, but then a heat wave decided to hit Metro Detroit and 93 degrees just doesn’t say comfort food to me.
In the end, I decided on a potato and veggie frittata. It’s a quick weeknight meal that combines lots of healthy ingredients – potatoes, zucchini, tomatoes, onion, eggs, etc. And a little cheese and bacon for good measure. I made a single serve frittata since the Mr. has been working tons of hours but this recipe can very easily be doubled (or tripled) to serve however many you need.
Read on after the recipe for a coupon for your own potatoes as well as a giveaway for a Klondike potatoes prize pack.

Serves: 1 (can easily be doubled)
1 Klondike red skin potato, diced & cooked
1/2 of a small zucchini, diced
1/2 of a roma tomato, diced
1 Tb onion, chopped
splash of milk
salt & pepper, to taste
red pepper flakes, to taste
handful of shredded cheese – I used a colby/monterey jack blend
1 slice of crispy bacon, optional (I used pre-cooked microwave bacon since I was just making 1 slice)
Heat a small skillet over medium heat. Once hot, add a turn of olive oil and your cooked potatoes, zucchini and onion. Cook until onions are translucent and the zucchini is tender.
While the veggies are cooking, crack two eggs into a bowl, add a splash of milk, and season with salt, pepper, and red pepper flakes. Use a fork to whisk up the eggs until frothy.
Once the veggies are done, remove them from the skillet and add the eggs.
Top the eggs with the cooked veggies, handful of cheese, and diced tomatoes. Cover the pan and cook for about 10 minutes on low heat or until the eggs are set in the middle and the cheese is melted.
Once done, garnish with crumbled bacon and cut into wedges.

So good. And fancy looking – but simple!
