    1 tsp olive oil

    100g thick cut cavolo nero
    100g frozen peas
    5g basil, stalks finely chopped, leaves left whole
    5 British Blacktail Medium Free Range Eggs

    1. Preheat the oven to 200°C, gas mark 6. Add the fries to a nonstick baking tray and bake for 22-25 minutes, turning halfway through cooking. Add the oil to a 20cm, nonstick, oven-proof frying pan over

Sprinkle half the basil leaves on top of the frittata, followed by the torn mozzarella, then place the frittata pan on the top shelf under the grill and cook for 3-5 minutes, until the egg has set and the mozzarella is melted and golden. Remove from the oven and sit for a minute before transferring to a board. Garnish with the remaining basil, then slice and serve with the fries.

    Cook’s tip Frittatas are a brilliant ‘fridge clear-out’ dish, so if you have any leftover cooked meat or veg in the fridge that needs using up, chop it up and add it to the pan when the cavolo nero goes in. Make sure whatever you’re using is cooked thoroughly before moving on to the next step.
