Ham, Cheddar And Basil Frittata

Published Monday, 24 November, 2008 by Kirsty

A really easy meal or snack using items you are likely to have in the fridge



  • For 1 person (Multiply ingredients for extra mouths or if you are more hungry)
  • 25g Honey Roast Ham
  • 10-20g of Cheddar Cheese
  • 2 Medium Eggs
  • 1 Small Baking potato
  • Fresh Basil (could use dried)
  • 1/2 a loose onion
  • 1 chopped tomato


1. Heat 1 tablespoon olive oil in a medium-sized, deep frying pan and cook onion, peeled and finely sliced, for 10 minutes until soft.

2. Meanwhile, peel, halve and thickly slice baking potato, and boil for 10 minutes until tender. Drain and add to the onions in the pan.

3. Preheat the grill to medium. Lightly beat eggs until combined. Stir in ham, roughly chopped; tomatoes, chopped; Cheddar, grated; and fresh basil, roughly chopped. Season with salt and pepper and pour the mixture into the frying pan. Fry for 5-10 minutes on a low heat, gently moving the mixture around until it starts to set.

4. Once the frittata is set, but still a little wobbly on top, place under the grill until fully set. Allow the frittata to rest for a few minutes, then turn out onto a plate. Cut into wedges. Serve with salad if you wish.
