  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.

An easy filling fritta
1st Oct, 2019
This went a bit wrong on a number of fronts! Firstly I thought the ingredients referred to cream cheese, but I I think they meant something like a roule. I swapped spinach for broccoli, and cooked it with the courgette and a bit of added red onion, no problem. Secondly, you have to cook it in a pan on the stove top then put it under the grill to finish.... my large pan (big size needed due to all the veg, didn't fit under the grill), so I transferred to two dishes. It was very sloppy so the top was overcooking before the egg was set, so ended up putting it in the oven for 1/2 hour to set. Long wait for our evening meal!! Makes quite a large quantity, easily enough for 6 large portions. Felt it was quite bland, I added some cheese on top for extra flavour. Think I'll try a more straightforward recipe next time!

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.
