Goat Cheese Frittata

There have been a few nights when I made a mad dash to the pantry or refrigerator to figure out what in the world we are going to have for dinner tonight that is really fast, fresh and delicious. Finding a nice wine to accompany the dish is another question.......this is a simple, but spectacular all in one meal tasting its' best, directly from the oven to the table. Most of the ingredients are probably in your possession right now! It is so easy and quite filling!

Slice one large red onion, cut into medium size pieces
8-10 fresh basil leaves, chopped
Six eggs, lightly beaten
Salt and pepper to taste
Four ounces of goat cheese, broken into 1/2 inch chunks
One small garlic, pressed
Three medium cooked potatoes, sliced
Two T. olive oil

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Use a ten inch pan or pie plate, slightly greased. Heat a small frying pan and saute the onions and garlic, adding the potatoes and basil last. Stir everything well. Transfer the onion mixture in to the beaten eggs. Place the dish in oven and bake for 18-20 minutes or until the eggs are set and top is light brown. That's all there is to it!
