Frittata with Pan Fried Potatoes, Red Onions and Arugula served with a side of my Homemade Spicy Tomato Salsa recipe. Quick, easy to make and delicious, both the Spicy Tomato Salsa and the Frittata can be made and on the table in 30 minutes. I make a lot of Frittatas, it’s our go-to dinner option when we need a quick easy meal, so definitely one I need on my food blog. One of the great things about the Frittata is there are no set rules or ingredients, it’s a great way to utilize leftover roasted vegetables, sausage or meats, or frozen veggies.
The Spicy Tomato Salsa is from a great Bar and Grill in Arlington, Texas, named J. Gilligan’s. Named after one of the founders and my brother in law, John Gilligan. J. Gilligan’s Bar & Grill is famous for many reasons, this salsa is one, but my favorite reason is that they invented the ‘Irish Nacho’s’. Substituting sliced pan-fried potatoes for the tortilla chips, it’s definitely my go-to when I eat there. This Spicy Tomato Salsa recipe is based on J. Gilligan’s Bar and Grill’s recipe that John Gilligan gave my Mom. I hope you love it as much as our family does.
