Recipe of the Week – 27th February 2017 – Potato and Broccoli Brunch Frittata

Sometimes recipe ideas come from necessity, in other words, what I manage to find in the fridge! This recipe is a nice simple one which can be used as a quick brunch or as a satisfying lunch with a green salad. It started off as a frittata using an omelette base, but I then combined it with the pan-fried potatoes and broccoli to make it more like a rosti. Anyway, it was very tasty and I hope you like it!

Serves 4 to 6

Ingredients

3 large baking potatoes, left unpeeled if the skins are ok, and cubed

1 large head of broccoli, cut into large florets

3 tbs sunflower oil

2 garlic cloves, sliced

2 tbs thyme leaves

100g mature cheddar cheese, grated

6 eggs

Salt and pepper to taste

Method

1. Place the potato cubes in a large pan of salted boiling water and bring to the boil. Par boil for 5 minutes then add the broccoli. Return to the boil for a further 1 minute. Drain and set aside.

2. Put the sunflower oil in a large deep frying pan then add the potatoes, broccoli, garlic and half of the thyme leaves. Gently sauté for 10 minutes, stirring often.

3. In a separate bowl, beat the eggs with the remaining thyme, season, the pour over the vegetables. Sprinkle the cheese over then cover. Allow to simmer until the eggs are set (about 10 minutes) then place under the grill to brown.

4. Serve immediately with bread and a salad.
