Less is more with this frittata, gently season each ingredient as you work through the recipe and you’ll end up with a delicious dish that can be eaten for breakfast, lunch or dinner!
The Italians got it right with this one, its simplicity is what makes it. Served with some local leaves and ripe cherry tomatoes all it needs is some September sun to make it perfect!
If there’s any left over, use it to make a sourdough sandwich. Slice it cold, add mayo, leaves and tomato to the sandwich – it’s delicious for the lunch box.
- 300g potatoes
- 150g courgettes
- 6 organic eggs
- Oil, salt and pepper
**You will need an oven safe non-stick frying pan to make this frittata – most frying pans are oven safe. If you wish you can use a deep baking tray 8in x 8in approximately.
- Scrub and steam or boil the potatoes first. Allow to cool.
- Slice the courgettes into rounds and fry on a frying pan with a pinch of salt until charred and golden sprinkle, set a slice to cool.
- Once cooled, dice the potatoes into cubes, keep the skins on if you wish, that’s where the nutrients are.
- Preheat the oven to 180℃.
- Warm a (oven safe) non-stick frying pan on a medium heat and add a tablespoon of oil.
- Fry the potatoes until golden and crispy and season with a pinch of salt and pepper.
- While the potatoes are frying, crack 6 eggs into a mixing bowl and add a pinch of salt and pepper, whisk well.
- Pour the eggs over the fried potatoes. Top with the slices of courgette.
- Cook on the hob for 3-4 minutes then carefully transfer into the oven.
- Bake in the oven for 15-20 minutes until the egg has set.
- Use a dry tea towel to lift the frying pan out of the oven.
- Set the frypan aside to cool for 10 minutes then loosen the edges with a rubber spatula and slice onto a serving plate.
- Serve with salad – I chose Galway grown leaves and heaps of cherry tomatoes!
