How to prepare Onion and potato frittata

To make the onion and potato frittata, first peel the potatoes 1 and cut them into not too large pieces 2. Then clean the red onions. 3

Thinly slice the onions 4. In a pan, first sauté the onion with a swirl of olive oil 5 for 5 minutes over medium heat, stirring often. Then add the potatoes 6 and cook until they are slightly colored, continuing to stir.

Salt to taste 7, cover with a lid 8, and cook for about 20 minutes, remembering to turn occasionally. They should be soft and well browned. In a bowl, pour the eggs and grated Grana Padano 9.

Season with thyme 10, salt, and pepper to taste, then mix everything together 11. Pour the egg mixture over the cooked potatoes and onions 12.

Cook for about ten minutes with the lid 13 on over medium-low heat, rounding out the shape as needed with a spatula. When it's time to turn the frittata (you can try lifting the base with the spatula to check the cooking) 14, use a plate to help flip it 15.

Slide the uncooked side back into the pan 16. Cook for a couple of minutes without the lid, and the frittata is ready 17. If you like, you can garnish with a few more thyme leaves 18 before serving your hot onion and potato frittata!
