Chorizo and Potato Frittata #SundaySupper

I love cooking challenges I think it helps keep my mind fresh to new ideas. So this weeks Sunday Supper challenge of 5 ingredients or less was right up my alley. Water, oil and salt and pepper were considered free but other then that it had to be only 5 ingredients.
When it comes to 5 ingredient challenges I often do pasta recipes so I decided I wanted to branch out and try something else. This potato and chorizo frittata totally fit the bill. Normally I worry about flavour when I have a recipe that doesn’t use any herbs or spices but the flavour you get in chorizo itself is enough that you don’t miss any additional herbs. This is perfect for breakfast or a lunch served with a side salad which is how we love it.

I can’t wait to check out the rest of the 5 ingredient menu the Sunday Supper crew have shared today. 5 ingredients often means simple and as life gets crazier with the addition of another child that is becoming even more important in my life.

Meanwhile slice the chorizo to thin slices, similar in thickness to the potatoes. In a skillet fry the chorizo until it begins to give off some of its oil and then add the onion and garlic. Saute until the onions are soft, about 5 minutes. Set aside leaving the oil in the pan.

Whisk eggs with salt and pepper until well combined. Layer the potatoes and chorizo back into the oiled skillet. Pour the eggs over and cook over medium low heat until egg begins to set but top remains soft, about 8 minutes.
