Pea & Gammon Frittata


Pea & Gammon Frittata

I love making frittatas when I have left-overs as the frittata lends itself to any flavour combination and any ingredients. I used left-over gammon for this frittata and added sweet caramelised onions and frozen petit pois as a nod to the classic combination of ham and peas.  This really is a fantastic way to use the last of your Christmas Gammon and is great as brunch, lunch or even a simple supper with a zesty salad served alongside.

    This frittata recipe seems wrong or incomplete. Step # 4 says pour the egg & cream mixture over the potatoes. WHAT potatoes? This is the first mention of potatoes. They’re not in the ingredient list. How are the potatoes cooked?

      Bob, you’re right. I have NO idea how the potato got in there. I am properly perplexed! I must’ve been writing two recipe at the same time and gotten confused! Thanks so much for pointing out my mistake, I amended the recipe immediately. :)
