Potato, Onion and Chorizo Frittata

My other half's speciality :) Can't really claim this recipe as my own, but it's so delicious it had to make the blog. I really recommend this one - sounds very simple but is far from it. A very fulfilling, flavourful, interesting meal. 

  • 4 potatoes, peeled and cut into chunks
  • 6 eggs
  • 120g of chorizo sausage, sliced
  • 1 large onion, very finely sliced
  • juice of 1 lemon
  • Olive oil
  • Salt and pepper
  • A bunch of fresh basil leaves

  1. Preheat an oven to 250C. Boil the potatoes in salty water. Drain them and set them aside.
  2. In an oven-proof pan, fry the chorizo slices until it starts getting crispy.
  3. Beat the eggs with a fork, season with a pinch of salt and pepper and add them to the pan with chorizo. Add in the potatoes as well and heat for about 30 seconds and transfer the whole pan into the oven until the frittata is golden brown on the top and just cooked in the middle.
  4. Mix together the onions, lemon juice, a spoon of olive oil and a small pinch of salt and pepper in a bowl. Leave for a couple of minutes to soften a little bit in the salt.
  5. Serve the frittata with the onions on the side and fresh basil leaves sprinkled on top. I had a couple of sundried tomatoes on the side as well, just for a contrast.
