This frittata is so easy to cook, is one of the most popular frittata flavours and can be eaten hot or cold.


Prep time 15mins

Cook Time 25-30mins

Serves 4




3 tbsp olive oil

2 onions, thinly sliced

8 eggs

1 tsp salt

Ground black pepper, to taste

4 medium potatoes, peeled and boiled in salted water for 8 minutes

2 tbsp finely chopped parsley leaves




Heat 2 tbsp of the olive oil in a large frypan. Add the onions and cook over a gentle heat until softened but not browned (about 8 mins).

In a large bowl, whisk the eggs with the salt and pepper.

Cut cooled potatoes into 1/2 cm thin slices and stir into the egg with the onions and parsley, making sure all the potato slices are separated and coated with egg.

Heat remaining oil in frypan used for onions. Add egg mixture. As the base begins to cook, use a spatula to lift it in several places, allowing raw egg to run underneath. Once it starts to set, leave it to cook over a very low heat until just set through (about 12 mins) Don’t be tempted to turn up the heat – some things you can get away with burning, but eggs are not one of them!

Place under a preheated grill until the top is set and golden (about 5-6mins) Test by gently pressing the centre – if it bounces back it is done.
