potato and onion frittata

Serve this for supper with a salad (or some crusty bread if you’re feeling the need for more carbs…no judging here).  Delicious, also, for brunch as an alternative to the usual home fries.

Possible add-ins?  Spinach, shredded cooked chicken, asparagus, cooked ground chorizo or chopped bacon, mushrooms.  Be your creative self.
