  • 300g new potatoes, sliced
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 6 streaky bacon rashers, chopped
  • 8 chipolatas
  • Bunch of spring onions, sliced
  • 12 cherry tomatoes
  • 8 large free-range eggs
  • Handful grated Cheddar


  1. Preheat the grill to medium high. Cook the potatoes in a pan of boiling salted water for 4-5 minutes, then drain. Heat the oil in a large frying pan and gently fry the potatoes for 5 minutes. Remove and set aside.
  2. Turn up the heat, fry the bacon for 5 minutes, until crisp, and add to the potatoes. Fry the sausages in the bacon fat over a medium heat for 5-6 minutes until cooked through.
  3. Return the potatoes and bacon to the pan with the spring onions and cherry tomatoes. In a jug, lightly whisk the eggs with lots of seasoning and pour into the pan. Cook the frittata over a low heat for 6-7 minutes until almost set, then sprinkle with the cheese and pop under the grill for 5 minutes to set and brown the top. Serve with toast and relish.
  • Mix this up with other favourite breakfast ingredients, such as mushrooms or black pudding. It’s also great for a picnic, eaten cold.
