Frittatas are one of the easier egg dishes, perfect for a beginner cook. This one has courgettes and sweetcorn but adapt to what’s on hand, it’s perfect for using up any leftover veg from previous meals. Great for a filling breakfast, healthy lunchbox addition, or even for a quick dinner with some crusty bread and salad.


In a large oven-safe frying pan, heat 1 tbsp oil over medium heat. Add the chopped courgette (and onion, if using) and cook until softened, about 5-10 mins. Add the sweetcorn and cook through for 2 mins, then beat the eggs in a bowl of jug, add a pinch of salt and pepper, and pour over the veg (with the pan still on the heat – it should sizzle as the egg hits the pan).

Preheat your grill to medium-high heat while the egg on the bottom of the pan cooks for about 2 mins, then place the pan under the grill for 5-10 mins, until slightly puffed up and golden. Serve hot if you like, but it is best served room temperature or cold.
