Serves 4

Best served with some soft roasted vine tomatoes


– 1 onion, very finely chopped
– 8oz/225g cooked new potatoes
– 1x tablespoon olive oil
– 100g pkt smoked pancetta, chopped (can be omitted by vegetarians)
– 6oz/175g chopped mushrooms
– 6x large eggs
– 50g/2oz cheddar cheese (grated)
– Salt and Pepper to taste


stockimagesIn a non-stick frying pan add the olive oil and sauté the onion and sprinkle with salt to allow it to sweat rather than brown. Add the pancetta and cook for a couple of minutes. Add the chopped mushrooms and cook a little more. Add the softly boiled, chopped potatoes and stir well. Beat the eggs and add to the pan, season with pepper and a little salt. Cook stirring for a minute, until most of the egg has set. Turn down the heat and cook for another minute or so. Sprinkle over the grated cheese and put the pan under a hot grill until the cheese is golden and the frittata is set. Serve in wedges.
