Bacon Frittata with Homemade Coleslaw

Frittata is so simple and filling to make its something I love to create if we are both going to be late home from work.
I like to serve frittata with homemade coleslaw that I have adapted .

Ingredients for Frittata
Servings 4

4 large free range eggs
Knob of butter
Tablespoon of olive oil
Freshly ground salt and black pepper
2 large peeled and cubed potatoes
1 large onion
1 finely chopped clove of garlic
4 slices of free range bacon cut into small pieces

Ingredients for coleslaw

Half a  finely chopped white cabbage
2 finely chopped celery sticks
2 finely chopped/grated carrots
1 finely chopped shallot
Freshly ground salt and black pepper
3 tablespoons of natural yogurt.


1.Cook potatoes in salted boiling water for 10 minutes or until tender then drain, tip into a large bowl and leave to one side.

2.In a small pan fry bacon until cooked and add to potatoes.

3.Melt your butter and olive in large frying pan, add chopped onions, garlic and fry until soft and pale yellow in colour. Lightly beat eggs add to potato mixture stir and add to frying pan.


4. Then cook frittata without stirring, shaking  pan once or twice to loosen frittata, until underside is golden but the top is still a little wet.

5.Place pan under grill if handle not ovenproof,wrap handle with a double layer of cooking foil.
Grill frittata until golden and set. Slide onto a plate and cool to room temperature.

To Make your Coleslaw

1.In large bowl add your finely chopped cabbage,chopped celery,carrots and shallot.
Add 3 large tablespoons of natural yogurt and season to taste.

Slice your frittata into 4, place on plates with coleslaw and I served mine with some pea shoots.

Takes roughly 45 mins to prepare and cook.
