Top Tips

  • The more you shake the contents in the bag, the more flavour you savour in the food.
  • How you like your Frittata is subject to taste so you might like to add more peppers or onions.
  • If pan is too  hot it will burn, if not hot enough it won’t not seal – you could  cook half way through and then pop under the grill.
  • Remember the slower you fry your onions the sweet they will be.
