Ingredients

FRITTATA

  • 400 g potatoes (i.e. agria) (14oz)
  • 1 capsicum
  • 200 g bacon (7oz)
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 2 tsp olive oil
  • 1/2 cup frozen peas (75g)
  • 7 eggs
  • 1/4 cup lite sour cream (60ml)
  • 1/4 cup milk (60ml)
  • 1 cup grated cheddar cheese (100g)

VEGGIES

  • 300 g button mushrooms (10.6oz)
  • 120 g baby spinach or regular spinach (4.2oz)
  • 1/2 Tbsp brown sugar
  • 1/2 Tbsp balsamic vinegar
  • 1/2 Tbsp soy sauce

TO SERVE

  • 1/4 cup tomato relish (80g) (optional)

Instructions

  1. PREPARE FRITTATA

    Peel potatoes and dice into small 1cm cubes. Dice capsicum and bacon. Crush garlic.

  2. 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).

  3. 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.

  4. 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.

  5. While potatoes are cooking, place the eggs, sour cream and milk in a bowl. Season well with salt and pepper and whisk to combine.

  6. 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.

  7. PREPARE VEGGIES

    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.

  8. SERVE

    Slice frittata into wedges and serve with sautéed mushrooms and spinach, and a dollop of relish.
