Method

Gluten free chorizo and potato frittata

Preheat oven to 160°C. Line and grease a 20 x 20cm baking tin.

  1. Cook the potatoes (in the microwave or on the stove in boiling water) until they are cooked through but still firm, when you are able to work with them, peel the skin off and slice into cubes.
  2. Heat the oil in a frying pan, add the chorizo and onion, cook for approximately 5 minutes, until the chorizo is golden.
  3. In a bowl whisk the cream, eggs and chicken stock and season with pepper.
  4. Combine half of the chorizo and onion with all the potatoes, cheese, parsley and rocket in a prepared tin and pour the cream and egg mixture over the top. Evenly spread the remaining chorizo mixture over the top.
  5. Bake for 30 minutes or until set.

Serve the frittata warm with a simple salad or make ahead to take to a barbecue or picnic because it is delicious cold too!
