Method

  1. Fry the lardons or bacon in the oil in a large non-stick frying pan until starting to brown, add the courgettes, then fry for a couple of mins until they begin to soften. Add the sweetcorn and spinach, season if you like, then heat through.

  2. Heat grill to medium. Beat the eggs, then pour over the vegetables. Crumble over the cheese, then cook gently until the egg has just set around the edges, about 5 mins. Slide the frittata under the grill, then cook until the egg is set and the top is lightly browned. Cut into wedges and serve with a simple green salad.

I think adding alot less of a high quality, slightly stronger flavoured but less runny-creamy 'cream cheese' should be used here, I used a cheap philadelphia style one and it made it a big creamy sludge.

I didn't use lardons, as I am veggie, nor sweetcorn, and used fresh spinach, and plain cream cheese, (St Moret) with fresh garlic. The result was delicious, though, and I will be trying this again.
