Recipe: Ham & Parmesan Fritatta

Sometime your just need something decadent for breakfast, I think a fritatta is the perfect thing and it’s not as hard as people make it out to be, here’s a quick and simple version:


  • 3 eggs
  • 3 tblsp cooking cream
  • 2 slices of honey roasted ham
  • 1 cup grated Parmesan
  •  Small bunch of fresh basil leaves
  • 2 small potatoes chopped into small cubes
  • 1/2 onion chopped


  1. Preheat the oven to 180c
  2. Place potatoes into a dish of water and microwave for 5 minutes or until potatoes are almost cooked through.
  3. Chop the ham and add that and the onions to a heated frying pan, cook the onions down slowly. Once cooked leave in the pan off the heat to cool.
  4. Whisk the eggs and cream until combined. Stir in the cheese and basil – season with salt and pepper.
  5. Strain the potatoes and place them in an oven proof pan.
  6. Add the onions and ham to the eggs and stir.
  7. Place the pan over a medium heat and pour in the egg mixture, into the pan over the potatoes. Do no stir.
  8. Allow the egg mixture to start cooking, when you see the edges start to cook and pull away from the edge of the pan place the dish into the oven.
  9. Cook the fritatta for 10 – 15 minutes depending on the size of your pan – when it has puffed up and gone a golden brown and a skewer stuck in comes out clean your dish is ready.
  10. Removed from the oven and allow to cool slightly – the fritatta should fall in the middle slightly.
