Chorizo and potato frittata

Chorizo and potato frittata



  • ½ cup olive oil
  • 4 chorizo sausages, diced
  • 1 brown onion, peeled and sliced
  • 1kg Desiree potatoes, peeled and diced
  • 8 eggs
  • salt and pepper


Place ¼ cup of the olive oil in a frying pan and heat over a medium heat. Fry the chorizo sausages until cooked through and set aside.

In the oil from the chorizo fry the onions and potatoes until they are softened. This will take about 10 minutes.

Mix the eggs in a bowl and season liberally with salt and pepper. Add the onion and potato mix to the eggs and leave to soak for 10 minutes. Stir through the chorizo. Season well with salt and pepper.

Heat the remaining olive oil in the pan and, when hot, add the potato, chorizo, egg mixture to the pan. Turn down the heat and shake the pan around a little to settle the ingredients.

Cook for 10 minutes on low heat and finish off under a hot grill in the oven for a further 3-4 minutes to set the top.

Serve warm with a crisp garden salad.
