30 minute frittata recipe ingredients

Ingredients may vary; feel free to add your own!

  • 3 eggs,
  • 1 chicken breast – diced,
  • Half a bell pepper – diced,
  • Half a white onion – diced,
  • Peas and sweetcorn or any other vegetables you have around
  • Chorizo (optional)
  • Oil or cooking spray
  • Any cheese for topping
  • Half a chicken stock cube
  • A little salt and pepper
  • A dash of milk

The great thing about frittata is that you can change it all up! To all you vegetarians out there – why not swap the chicken and chorizo for mushrooms and tomatoes instead?


  1. First, preheat the oven to 200C/Fan 180C/Gas 6 and sweat your onions and peppers in an oiled pan. (This is the best time to add your seasoning.)
  2. Once the onions and peppers have become soft, add the chorizo and let it sizzle for a few minutes.
  3. Next, add the rest of your vegetables and when they have cooked add it all to your baking dish. You need one with sides so that it can hold the eggs.
  4. In another bowl whisk some eggs with a dash of milk. Whisking your eggs for a little longer than usual will make them fluffier.
  5. Pour the egg mixture into the baking dish as well and give it a little stir.
  6. Finally put it in the oven for 20-25 minutes.

You know it’s cooked when you can run a knife through it and there is no raw egg.

Drizzle the frittata with sriracha sauce to add extra flavour and enjoy!
