Is a frittata breakfast? Whenever I read other recipes, it’s described as breakfast. But I can’t see this. I like a light cereal or toast based breakfast. Or a giant greasy breakfast. Or poached eggs. Ok, I like lots of different breakfasts, but frittata is a lunch! I think it’s the potato. I just can’t quite get my head around potatoes for breakfast.
So, if you would like to try this wonderful lunch, breakfast or dinner,
You Will Need:
- 350g White potatoes
- 6 Rashers of bacon
- 5 Onion
- 6 Eggs
- 100g Spinach
- 50g Cheese, grated
- Cooking oil
Firstly, cook the potatoes. Peel and chop them, quite small, about 1-2cm chunks, boil for 20 minutes until soft. Set to one side for later. I’m so impatient when it comes to potatoes. Which is a little strange, because i often have to wait for a lot longer to cook other things.
Finely slice the onion, and cut the bacon. Fry them in a little oil until the onions are soft and the bacon is starting to brown.
Add the spinach, and cook for a few minutes, just until the spinach is wilting. I love watching spinach wilt. It shrinks so dramatically. You start with a full pan, then suddenly, it’s all gone. Then sprinkle the potatoes around.
Whisk the eggs into a bowl, and then pour into the pan with everything else. It should spread around the pan, but tilt it a little if you need to. Sprinkle the cheese on top.
Now, the trick here is, low and slow. If you try to cook it too quickly, it will stick. Don’t worry about it burning, just cook over a low heat for around 15 minutes. You can then pop it into the oven on a lightly oiled baking tray, at 180 degrees for around 10 minutes if you want to make sure it’s well cooked.
