Frittata

We have not been out to the allotment again for a few days due to the weather. Yesterday we went to Robert's Cove as we had a few hours of sunshine, we had just landed when thunder and torrential rain found us.It did clear for a while so the kids got a couple of hours on the beach searching the rock pools for crabs!On the way home I had to drive through a thunder storm with lightening flashing and hail stones battering the car! I had made this frittata a few days ago using some of the smaller new potatoes and of course some courgette!They are being sneaked into everything lately. I also used half a head of the red cabbage and cooked it with oil, white wine vinegar,an apple,red onion and brown sugar.It was not an earth shattering taste but OK. I reheated it the next day adding another dash of the vinegar and it had a better taste.I notice my photography is getting a little shakey!
The frittata ingredients cooking in oil. Chopped new potatoes,courgette,peppers and onions. The beaten eggs were then added and cooked before putting it under the grill for a few minutes to set the top.It is actually a very filling dish and great for using up leftovers in the fridge as any combination can be used.

Hi Peggy,
You seem to be geting similar weather as us in the West Coast of Scotland. Hopefully, it will be good for the weekend>

Courgette frittata is also on our home menu, afterall what are we going to do with all those courgettes.
