Ham, Brie & Cranberry Frittata

Christmas & New Year’s Eve may feel like a distant memory, but you probably have a lot of cheese and meat still lingering in your fridge/freezer! Therefore, why not make the most of those delicious left-overs! You could use any meat, but ham or bacon are best for this recipe.

INREDIENTS:

8 Eggs

100ml whole or semi-skimmed milk

1 Red/orange Pepper

1/2 Green Pepper

1 cup frozen peas

150g Brie

3 slices of cooked ham

4 Tbsp of cranberry sauce

1/2 tsp pepper

1/4 tsp salt

1 Tbsp dried mixed herbs

2 Tbsp oil

METHOD:

Pre-heat oven to 200 degrees (Fan ovens 180).

Chop the green & red pepper into thin slices.

Next, whisk the eggs, milk, salt, pepper, herbs & cranberry sauce in a large mixing bowl. Don’t worry about the lumps! You might need to use the back of a fork to break up the cranberry sauce in to the mixture.

Now, thinly slice the Brie. Then, chop the ham in to small chunks.

Grease a large flan dish or a large baking tin.

Give the egg mixture another whisk and then transfer to the dish. Scatter the peppers and peas in to the mixture.

Now add the ham.

Finally, carefully place the brie on top of the mixture and push down slightly. Sprinkle a little more dried herbs over the top.

Place the frittata in to the oven for 40 mins. If you poke a knife through the center, you will be able to tell if the egg is cooked or not. Sometimes just leaving to cool for 5 mins will set it.

Serve with salad and a nice dollop of chutney!
