Funny when we are on the boat, a lot of trouble normally goes into lunch prep.
At home, it tends to be a sandwich. Maybe more to do with being busy on land.
Actually as I was busy at home I didn't want to go out and buy fresh bread so I decided to make a Frittata.
I loved the potato and pea combination in last night's dinner and there was some of each in the pantry/freezer.
Some excellent FRENZ Organic Free Range Eggs, a red onion and some olive oil and Bob's your Uncle.
Quick and tasty, we ate it all
1 red onion chopped
New potatoes cooked in salted water, till just fork tender ( as many as you like)
1 cup frozen peas quickly defrosted in the micro wave
1/2 cup Olive oil
Pre-heat oven 195C
Cover the bottom of a pan (that can go into the oven) with about the olive oil
Heat the oil, so that when you put the potaoes in they sizzle.
Meanwhile chop the potatoes into rounds
Add to oil and fry till golden brown.
Strain in a sieve and reserve oil
Add 1 tablespoon of reserved oil and
Saute till tender
Season with Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper
Add onions, potatoes and defrosted peas into eggs
Add another tablespoon of reserved oil into pan
Throw in egg mix
Cook for about a minute to get that frilly edge
Pop into oven
Cook for about 8 minutes or until a knife comes out clean
Remove from pan
Let rest for about 5 minutes
Turn out and cut into wedges.
Think I will make one for Dale and Pete, who are sailing the boat up to Whangaroa tomorrow.
Will make an easy and tasty lunch.
A few leaves of chopped mint would be a nice addition.
Of course for a healthier option, don't fry the potatoes.
I have done that but the flavour of the fried potatoes is really, really good!
Of course it will serve 4 with a salad and maybe some crusty bread.
