My Mexican style Frittata





This Mexican Style Frittata is one of my favourite go-to breakfasts at the moment. With minimal mess and washing up, it’s a quick & easy one dish recipe in the oven (which means more time to sit and enjoy your morning ginger tea or coffee). I love the Mexican inspired ingredients but feel free to throw in whatever you have. Slice it up and make it into an ideal breakfast, lunch or snack on the go.


  1. In a large frying pan, gently fry the onions in oil for 4 minutes while you chop everything else.
  2. Add the chopped pepper for a further minute and pop the grill on high. Add the sweetcorn and black beans and whisk the eggs in a bowl with S&P.
  3. Pour the eggs into the pan, give everything a good stir, heat on medium and leave to set for about 5 minutes.
  4. Scatter the cheese over the top and pop under the grill for 3-5 minutes until golden and bubbling. While it’s cooking, prepare the toppings.
  5. Remove from the grill and let rest for a few minutes before sliding out from the pan then add your toppings and serve
