I made this for Christmas Eve brunch and it was straight-up delicious! The picture is proof these recipe tests aren’t always perfect the first time. If you follow the recipe, yours won’t get quite so cooked on the bottom (which becomes the top when serving it) and that’s a good thing. Either way, it still tastes great!

Time: 30 minutes

Serves: 6


15g bacon fat or cold-pressed avocado oil (or other cold-pressed neutral-flavoured oil)
400g potato – peeled – small dice
10g salt
200g onion – small dice
12 large eggs
0.5g fresh ground black pepper
160g old cheddar – grated
Green onion – sliced (garnish)

Place a large, non-stick, oven-safe frying pan on medium heat and add the bacon fat or oil.

When the oil is hot, add the potato, stirring occasionally for five minutes.

Add the onion and half the salt, stirring occasionally for three minutes or until the potato and onion are cooked through.

In a suitable bowl, whisk together the eggs, remaining salt, pepper, and cheese.

Pour the mixture into the pan. Swirl the pan to evenly disperse the egg mixture.

Preheat your broiler.

Once the eggs have set along the edges of the pan (approximately two minutes) place the pan directly under the broiler until the top has set.

Remove the pan from the oven. Use a spatula to check that the edges of the egg are free. Carefully flip the pan over to release the frittata onto a serving platter.

Garnish with green onion and serve immediately.
