Step by Step Method
In a bowl, whisk eggs. Set aside
In a skillet heat butter or oil over moderate heat. Add garlic, sauté just until it starts to brown.
Add the potatoes to the pan and continue cooking until they start to brown. Remove from pan and let them cool slightly.
Add the cooled potatoes to the eggs along with the salt, black pepper and basil.
To the skillet, pour in half of the potato and egg mixture. Mix gently for about 20 seconds. Cover the pan and continue to cook for several minutes or until the frittata has solidified and browned. Turn the frittata over and cook briefly on the other side.
Transfer the frittata to a serving plate. Top with the mozzarella, ham, and half of the parmesan. Put the plate in a 250° F oven.
In the meantime, cook the remainder of the egg and potato mixture just as with the previous one. When it is done, remove the plate from the oven. Place the second frittata on top of the first. Sprinkle with the remaining parmesan.
To serve, cut into wedges and serve with salsa.
