Veggie Confetti Frittata

Prep time 20 mins
Stand time 5 mins
Cook time 16 mins
Bake time 10 mins
Yield Makes 6 servings
Soaking the shredded potatoes in cold water keeps them from turning gray before cooking. It also rinses off some of the starch. Drain and pat them dry, so they won't stick to the cast-iron skillet.


  • 3 (8-oz.) baking potatoes, peeled and shredded (about 3 cups firmly packed)*
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1 small red bell pepper, diced
  • 1 medium onion, diced
  • 1/2 (8-oz.) package sliced fresh mushrooms
  • 1 garlic clove, pressed
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt, divided
  • 1/4 cup sliced ripe black olives, drained
  • 1/4 cup thinly sliced sun-dried tomatoes in oil, drained
  • 6 large eggs
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/2 cup (2 oz.) shredded Swiss cheese
