the simplest way to make a frittata

I got an email from one of my past students at the Stonesoup Virtual Cookery School the other day.

She was after my baked frittata recipe. Which inspired me to bake a frittata for brunch on the weekend.

I had a jar of home dried cherry tomatoes in oil left over from my preserves class, so they were an obvious choice to flavour the frittata. Such a winning combo.

Feel free to take this recipe and make it your own. Popping everything in a springform pan and baking in the oven has to be the simplest way to make a frittata.

It’s also super versatile. Anything from asparagus to bacon to zucchini to cooked potato to canned chickpeas will work a treat.

serves 4

12 eggs
large handful grated parmesan
large handful sun or semi-dried tomatoes
2 sprigs thyme

1. Preheat oven to 180C (350F) and place a baking tray on the middle shelf

2. Line a 24cm (9in) springform pan with baking paper and grease generously.

3. Combine eggs and parmesan in a bowl. Season then pour into the pan. Top with tomatoes & thyme.

4. Place on the preheated tray and bake until golden and puffy and the centre feels firm and springy, about 20 minutes.
