Frittata.....Mood = Left overs

This morning i woke up had a kickboxing session with my husband and a world champion kickboxer names Klaus. After my hour long torture, that i am sure is amazing for me, i needed to eat. I came home, and didnt really find anything in the fridge except food i had made for my darling Shih tzu Sparta. Something was wrong with this picture. I then rummaged and found some parsley, thyme, eggs, milk. There was a light at the end of the tunnel.... I saw some sweet potatoes, and some king edward potatoes and decided that i would make a potato and egg frittata.

I have made this, or something similar to this along time ago and remembered it filled me up and kept me going for quite a while so this was the ideal meal with great ingredients.

I was so tired after this kickboxing session but i knew i had to make something otherwise it would be a disaster. So my dish began its course.........


7 eggs
3 rashers bacon
1 Onion sliced
1 sweet potato
2 medium potatoes
A bunch of parsley
2 tomatoes
A few sprigs of thyme
100ml milk
Vegetable oil
Oven proof frying pan


  • Peel and cube your potatoes.
  • Put them in boiling water and soften them. Make sure you salt the water.
  • Cut the bacon and sautée it with the onion in butter and oil till browned a little.
  • Mix the eggs with the milk, tomatoes, parsley, thyme, salt and pepper.
  • Remove the potatoes from the water and place them into the pan.
  • Add the egg mix and move everything about to combine it all together.
  • Place in the oven for about 15 minutes at 220 degrees.
  • When ready, get a knife to run around the edge to make sure it isn't stuck.
  • Remove and place on a plate and serve. 
  • You can get about 8 slices from this recipe. 

I ate 2. OK 2 and a half. But its good for you.

I hope you enjoy it as much as i did!!!!

If you have any left over, this is great for breakfast ....
