Individual potato and spinach frittatas in iron skillets were hot and satisfying suppers to start the weekend.  I cooked the potatoes this afternoon and refrigerated until it was time to make dinner.  While the oven was preheating, I sauteed the spinach with garlic scapes for 2 minutes, then drained and squeezed in paper towels. I placed 2 skillets on side by side burners and sauteed garlic, shallots and potatoes for 2 minutes, then added the spinach and egg-yogurt mix.  Topped with grated parmesan cheese, I cooked the the frittatas stove-top for 2 minutes, then transferred the skillets to the oven to finish baking.  At the end, I turned the oven to broil to brown the top of the frittatas.  My husband saved part of his for breakfast!
