frittata, potato, onion, eggs, cheese, chorizo
This frittata can be eaten hot or cold


Frittata is basically a filling and more interesting omelet. This frittata is baked in the oven and can be enjoyed warm or eaten cold and enjoyed on a summer's day picnic.

Preparation Time: 20 minutes
Cooking Time: 25 minutes
Makes: 4 - 6 servings

Ingredients
6 eggs
300g potato
1 large onion
50g chorizo
100ml single cream
Large pinch of salt
2 tsp mixed dried herbs
6 tablespoons olive oil
100g grated cheddar cheese
1 tablespoon grated parmesan (optional)

Method
Preheat your oven to 180 degrees C.
Peel and dice the potatoes into cubes approx 1cm in size.
Boil the potatoes for 5 minutes then drain.
Finely slice the onion and gently fry in 3 tablespoons of olive oil.
Dice the chorizo and add to the onions when they are almost cooked. This will release the full flavour of the chorizo without it getting too crisp.

Add the potatoes, onions and chorizo to the egg mixture.
Heat 3 tablespoons of olive oil in a 25cm saucepan (one with a metal handle which can be put in the oven).
When the oil is hot, add the egg mixture and give it a quick stir to make sure the potatoes are evenly distributed.

Grated cheddar and parmesan taste great but you could also try feta cheese


Once you remove it from the oven, allow it to cool for 5 to 10 minutes before sliding onto a chopping board and cut into slices.

I have a fussy toddler but this was a winner with him this lunchtime. Just remember to go easy on the salt if you are giving this to children or avoid it completely.

This is also a great recipe to do if you need to use up lots of eggs if you have been blowing them for Easter. Why not have a look at MyKidCraft for egg decorating ideas.
