Roast potato and vegie frittata

Leftover roast potatoes can go straight into this frittata! It’s also great for using asparagus. If asparagus is out of season any other seasonal vegetable will do – try it with broccoli, green beans or spinach.


Preparation & Cooking time: 25 minutes
Difficulty: Easy
Servings: Makes 4 servings - Cannot be frozen


1 tbsp olive oil

1 Heat the olive oil in a large frying pan and cook the onion and garlic for 2 minutes.

2 Add the potatoes, asparagus and diced cheese to the pan.

Tip: Use any leftover cooked vegetables in the frittata or for a meaty version, add diced ham or bacon.
