2-serving instructions (4-serving modifications in red)

Wash produce before use


Pickle the onion

  • Peel and thinly slice the onion; set aside half for the frittata. 

In a small bowl, combine half the onion with the quick-pickle brine. Season with salt and pepper and toss to coat. Let stand, stirring occasionally, while you prepare the rest of the meal. 


Prep the frittata ingredients; start cooking the ground meat

  • Scrub the potatoes; thinly slice the potatoes crosswise.
  • Crack the eggs into a medium bowl. Using a fork or whisk, lightly beat until just blended. 
  • Cut a small corner from the ground meat packaging and drain off any excess liquid. Transfer to a plate; pat dry with a paper towel.

In a medium [large] frying pan over medium-high heat, warm 1 to 2 teaspoons oil until hot but not smoking. Add the ground meat and cook, stirring to break up the meat, until lightly browned but not yet cooked through, 3 to 4 minutes. Using a slotted spoon, transfer the meat to a paper-towel-lined plate to drain. Do not clean the pan.


Cook the frittata

In the same pan used for the ground meat, if dry, add 1 to 2 teaspoons oil. Warm over medium-high heat until hot but not smoking. Add the potatoes and remaining onion, season with salt and pepper, and cook, stirring occasionally, until the onion is softened and the potatoes are almost tender, 3 to 5 minutes. Add the chard and cook, stirring occasionally, until wilted, 2 to 4 minutes.

Reduce the heat to medium-low and add the ground meat. Spread the ingredients evenly over the bottom of the pan. Pour the eggs on top, tilting the pan to allow the eggs to cover all the ingredients. Cover and cook without stirring until the eggs are set, 6 to 9 minutes. Slide the frittata onto a cutting board and let cool for 5 minutes, then cut into 4 equal wedges. While the frittata is cooling, prepare the salad.


Make the salad

  • Using a slotted spoon, remove the pickled onion from the brine.

In a medium bowl, stir together the Aleppo chile–lime vinaigrette base and 1 to 2 tablespoons oil. Add the mixed greens and pickled onion and toss to coat; season to taste with salt and pepper.


Transfer the frittata and salad to individual plates and serve.
