Roasted Pepper & Potato Frittata with Harissa AioliFrittata is an egg-based Italian dish similar to an omelette or crustless quiche, enriched with additional ingredients such as meats, cheeses, vegetables or pasta. Served with our Harissa Aioli sauce, this recipe could be breakfast, lunch or dinner!

The Frittata:

  • 2 pounds small yellow potatoes cut into 1″ pieces
  • 2 shallots, thinly sliced
  • 1 jar roasted red peppers, drained
  • 2 green onions thinly sliced
  • 2 teaspoons fresh thyme
  • 1/4 cup Fresh Harvest Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • 10 large eggs (farm fresh/free range/organic)
  • 2 teaspoons fine sea salt
  • Fresh ground pepper to taste

Preheat the oven to 400 F. In a small pot, cover the potatoes with water. Add a tablespoon of salt and bring to a simmer. Cook the potatoes until just barely tender when pierced with a knife tip, about 8 minutes. Remove and drain the potatoes.

In a heavy 12″ oven proof sauté pan (cast iron is ideal here) heat the Fresh Harvest EVOO over medium high heat. Add the fully drained and dry potatoes to the hot oil and sauté until they just begin to take on a golden hue.  Add the shallot and roasted peppers to the potatoes. Continue cooking over medium-high flame for another 3-5 minutes until the shallots begin to take on a golden hue. Add the fresh thyme.

In a large bowl, crack the eggs and whisk with 2 teaspoons of salt and ground pepper to taste. Pour the eggs over the potatoes and vegetables in the pan. Place the entire pan in the oven for 15-20 minutes, or until the egg is fully set and the bottom of the frittata is golden brown. Cut the frittata in wedges and serve each slice sprinkled with thinly sliced scallions, a sprinkle of fresh thyme, and a dab of the Aioli, if desired. Serves 8.

The Aioli:

  • 1 cup Fresh Harvest Harissa Olive Oil
  • 1 large clove garlic
  • 2 large egg yolks (must be at room temperature)
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon fine sea salt

In the bowl of a food processor or blender, add the egg yolks, lemon juice, salt, and garlic clove. Process until smooth. With the motor running, slowly add the olive oil; pouring in a thin stream until the mixture comes together forming an emulsion.
