Notes

We cooked the mixture in two smaller frying pans but you can make one large frittata in a large 25cm (base measurement) frying pan; cook the frittata, over medium-low heat, about 10 minutes at step 4, then cook under the grill as recipe suggests. When the frying pans go under the grill in this recipe, ensure you use pans with ovenproof handles. Or, you can cover the handles with a few layers of foil to protect them from the heat.
