    Mixed Pepper Frittata

    Make the most of eggs: they are a source of protein, calcium, zinc and iron and are rich in vitamins A, D, E and B, making them especially suitable for children who need these nutrients to grow. In addition to being good for us, eggs are also tasty and versatile. They are delicious boiled, fried, poached and scrambled or used as an ingredient for a tasty meal.

    • 2 tbsp olive oil
    • 1 onion, sliced
    • 1 red pepper, deseeded and finely diced
    • 1 yellow pepper, deseeded and finely diced

    • 150g new potatoes, quartered and boiled until tender
    • salt and freshly ground black pepper
    • 4 Waitrose Free Range Medium Eggs, beaten
    • 4 Waitrose Free Range Medium Eggs, whites seperated


    1. Heat the oil in a large, non-stick frying pan and fry the onion gently for 2-3 minutes or until softened. Add the raw vegetables, season well and fry for 4-5 minutes until softened. Stir in the cooked potatoes.
