“Fridge Raid” Frittata 

"Fridge Raid" Frittata

People always ask how I make my frittata and to be honest it’s always a bit of a fridge raid affair! As long as I have an onion and six eggs then I can create a meal using up any left over veggies and cheese that might be lurking in my fridge. As a keen veg box cook I always have random vegetables that need a home and a frittata is the perfect dish to make. Alongside my veggies, I always have various cheeses in the fridge that are more than likely from Quicke’s. With Quicke’s farm being a short drive from Exeter it is easy to feed my cheesey passion! Failing that, I have the Real Food Store about a five minute walk from my front door and they always have three or four Quicke’s cheeses on offer.

Like I said before, this really is a dish that you can create using whatever vegetables and cheese you have to use up before your next shop. Use your imagination and be creative. 

"Fridge Raid" Frittata 
Write a review
  1. 6 eggs, beaten
  2. 1 onion finely sliced
  3. Salt and pepper
  4. Rapeseed oil or olive oil
  5. Any mix of vegetables you fancy to fill a frying pan. I used half a pointed cabbage and a good handful of rainbow chard both finely sliced
  6. Cheese, grated. I used Quicke's Goats cheese.
  1. Heat a good glug of oil over a medium heat in a frying pan.(make sure your frying pan has a metal handle as it will need to be grill proof.)
  2. Add the sliced onions and fry in the oil until soft and translucent.
  3. Add your finely sliced vegetables and let them sauté until softened or wilted. This will depend on what vegetables you use. Season with salt and pepper.
  4. Pour over your beaten eggs and make sure the softened and wilted vegetables are covered. Turn the heat down to low and let the eggs cook. (Approx 5-10 minutes) When they are almost set cover with your grated cheese.
  5. Place the almost cooked frittata under the grill and melt the cheese until golden and bubbling.(about 5 minutes)
  1. Serve at room temperature with a few salads of your choice and some crusty bread and butter. Delicious and so easy to make.
