This frittata bursting of spring greens and new potatoes is a new favourite of mine. I added some sharp grated cheddar to reduce the sulphur-y taste fried eggs, which I’m not a fan of, but you can omit the cheese if you prefer although it does make the frittata a little creamier. Topping the frittata with crème fraiche and lumpfish caviar is very Scandinavian but it works really well and makes the dish feel a little lush.
Frittata, serves 4 as a starter/light bite, serves 2 as a main course
200 g cooked new potatoes, sliced
6 asparagus stems, cut into 2-3 cm large pieces
100 g spinach
a knob of butter for frying
a splash of milk or cream if desired
50 ml grated sharp cheddar
salt & pepper
Pre-heat the oven to 180-200C. Bring water to the boil in a saucepan and cook the asparagus fir 2 minutes. Drain. Beat the eggs in a bowl (and add a plash of milk or cream if desired), season. Heat up some butter in a oven-proof frying pan (no plastic handle) and wilt the spinach. Drain the excess water and add a little more butter. Add the potato slices and asparagus pieces and fry for a minute on high heat. Add the beaten eggs and lower the heat to medium. Let the eggs set at the bottom, scatter with grated cheddar and place in the oven for 5-10 minutes until the just set.
Leave to cool for a few minutes, cut into pieces and serve with crème fraiche and caviar.
