The potato crust on this pretty frittata is so easy to make, and everyone will love the taste. I’ve made it with goat cheese, too, and it’s delicious. You can also use other vegetables if you like. —Harbour House Inn B&B, Eva Amuso, Cheshire, Massachusetts

  • 2 small potatoes, peeled and cut into 1/2-inch cubes
  • 8 large eggs, lightly beaten
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
