75g Kaltbach Le Gruyere AOC Switzerland

Handful of fresh chopped parsley

200g bacon lardons

250g mushrooms

Salt and pepper

Oil / butter for frying

How to make it

Frittatas are a great way of using up ends of cooked meats, herbs and cheese in your fridge. We’ve used Le Gruyere in this recipe for it’s depth of flavour and perfection when melted, but if you need to swap in another cheese it’ll be just as tasty!

  • Preheat oven to 200°C/ 180°C fan/ gas mark 6
  • Ideally use a cast-iron skillet or oven safe frying pan
  • Fry the bacon lardons until golden (approx 5 mins)
  • Lift out the bacon and then fry the mushrooms until soft
  • Lift out and place with the bacon
  • Wipe the pan clean and then grease again, including the edges
  • In a separate bowl mix the eggs, Le Gruyere and parsley with a little seasoning
  • Add the egg/cheese mixture to the skillet/pan then sprinkle over the bacon lardons and mushrooms
  • Place the whole skillet/pan in the oven and bake for approx 30 minutes, or until golden and cooked in the centre
  • Serve in wedges
