This substantial potato frittata includes three of the most delicious foods – bacon, potatoes and cheese. The side of sautéed mushrooms and spinach is a little bit different and really tasty too.
This meal is good for any time of day, be it brunch, lunch or dinner! It’s pretty versatile too – you could sub out the bacon for chorizo or salmon, and use whichever veggies you have on hand.
If you like, you can make the whole thing in a large oven-proof frying pan instead of transferring to a dish. Even if you don’t have an oven-proof pan you can usually use a standard pan and cover the handle with tinfoil to protect it. Just make sure you don’t accidentally touch the handle once it has come out the oven!

A substantial frittata that includes three of the most delicious foods - bacon, potatoes and cheese! With the side of sautéed mushrooms and spinach, this would be a good brunch meal too.
Peel potatoes and dice into small 1cm cubes. Dice capsicum and bacon. Crush garlic.
Preheat oven to 200ºC (390ºF) fan bake. Grease or line an oven-safe dish with baking paper (dish should be approximately 23cm / 9in diameter if using round, or 18cm x 25cm / 7in x 10in for a rectangular dish).
Heat oil in a large frying pan over a medium-high heat. Add bacon and cook until browned. Add garlic and cook for a further 30 seconds. Remove from the pan onto a plate.
Add potatoes to pan and cook for 10 minutes, stirring frequently, until crisped around the edges and almost tender. Season with salt and pepper. Add the capsicum and peas and cook for 2 more minutes.
While potatoes are cooking, place the eggs, sour cream and milk in a bowl. Season well with salt and pepper and whisk to combine.
Place potatoes into the prepared dish and sprinkle over the bacon, garlic and cheese. Pour over the egg mixture. Cook for 20 minutes, until frittata has set.
While frittata is cooking, slice mushrooms. Heat oil in a large frying pan over a medium heat and cook mushrooms for 2 minutes. Add sugar, vinegar and soy sauce and cook for 5 minutes, until mushrooms have softened. Add spinach and cook for 1 minute, until wilted.
Slice frittata into wedges and serve with sautéed mushrooms and spinach, and a dollop of relish.

GLUTEN-FREE OPTION: Make sure you use gluten-free soy sauce.
