  1. In a small non-stick frying pan, heat oil over a medium heat. Add potatoes, then fry until beginning to crisp, about 8 mins. In a bowl, whisk together eggs, spring onions, dill and some seasoning. Heat the grill.

  2. Tip the eggs into frying pan, mix quickly, lower the heat, then sprinkle over cheese. After about 8 mins, once the top side has almost set, pop under the grill for 2-3 mins or until firm and golden. Slide out of the pan. Eat straight away with mayo or ketchup or cool quickly and chill.

Used normal potatoes which I sliced and cooked in chicken stock for added flavour until soft . Cooked a leek and some mushrooms in a bit of butter and added these to the cooked potato. Added loads more cheese (about 100g) to 5 whisked eggs and lots of seasoning. Also added a chopped up cooked chicken breast for the meat eaters! Delicious.

Obviously I'm missing something here. Completely underwhelming. Lacking in flavour despite using vintage farmhouse cheese. Slightly better cold than hot but I won't be making again.

This is so easy to make but I do always seem to be cooking up the leftover potatoes especially as I never seem to have any leftover from anything. I always add a chopped up pepperami for a bit of spiciness. Lovely.

I love this! Made it for my boyfriend and he was well impressed :) Going to make it again today and serve it cold tomorrow as a side dish to my BBQ.

Used some Thai flavoured potato left overs for our version and was very nice.

This was really good, however I tweacked it a bit - I couldnt decide whether to cook this frittata or the one with courgettes and goat's cheese (from this website again!) so I halved the recommended amount of potatoes for this recipe and added courgettes instead. Delicious!

Very quick and easy and the sort of recipe you can add any leftovers to - I added some mushrooms. Also used the first potatoes we've ever grown!
