  • 1 small red chilli, finely chopped
  • 1 heaped tsp Dijon mustard
  • 2 tsp red wine vinegar
  • 200g bag mixed salad leaves (we used watercress, rocket & spinach)
  • 12 baby plum tomatoes, halved


  1. Heat a 24cm non-stick ovenproof pan and fry the bacon rashers in batches on a high heat until cooked through and crisp. Chop 4 roughly and break the other 4 into large pieces. Set aside on kitchen paper and clean the pan.

  2. Heat the grill to high. Warm 1 tbsp oil in the pan. Season the eggs, add the chopped bacon and pour into the pan. Cook on a low heat for around 8 mins or until almost set. Arrange the avocado slices and bacon shards on top. Grill briefly for about 4 mins until set.

  3. Mix the remaining oil, the chilli, mustard, vinegar and seasoning in a large bowl. Toss in the salad leaves and tomatoes. Serve alongside the frittata, cut into wedges.

We loved this. So simple to whip up after work with everything we already had in the fridge. Impressed at how it puffed up. Added some chilli into the frittata as well for added heat and served with green veg tossed in the dressing rather than salad.

Very average. Not as good as other frittata recipes on this site. The avocado went brown and the frittata was very flat.
