Green Eggs & Ham Frittata

    • Serves 4
    • Easy


    This is a great family-friendly frittata, or spanish omelette, aptly named after the 1960’s Dr Seuss book. Its the pesto in the recipe which turns to eggs green! I find that using home-made green pesto in this recipe is best, as its much more vibrant in colour and fresh in taste, but if you haven’t got the ingredients (or a spare 5 minutes to whizz them up), then classic jarred pesto could also be used.

    I think this works really well served with peas and toasted tortilla wraps but as always, you can choose what works best for your family.

    Thickly slice the pre-boiled potatoes and cut the ham into matchstick sized pieces. In a jug, beat the eggs and mix in the pesto.


    In a large frying pan, heat a tbsp of oil. Arrange the sliced potatoes, spaced out over the pan. Fry for 5 minutes. Sprinkle in the ham and pour in the eggy-pesto mixture. Allow to cook over a moderate heat for 5 minutes until the frittata starts to looks set underneath. At this point, turn on the grill and place the pan under the grill to allow the top to cook and brown. This may take another 5-10 minutes. Allow to stand for 5 minutes before turning out of the pan and slicing into thick wedges.
