Chicken Frank and Mozzarella Frittata

20 Feb

I finally cooked and baked something from Nigella Lawson’s new book, Nigella Kitchen. In fact, there are quite a number of recipes that I want to try from the book. Apart from the fact that some of the ingredients are non-halal, I simply used an alternative and more often than not, it worked quite well with my palatte.

What I love about this frittata is there is no flipping required *YAY*. All I needed to do was simply preheat the oven and transfer the fat eggy cake to it once it’s cooked halfway through on the stove. This is, in the words of Nigella, the Marilyn Monroe of the frittata world. I hope you’ll like it as much as the family did for today’s brunch šŸ˜‰


  • 6 eggs
  • 6 chicken franks, boiled and chopped
  • 150 gm mozzarella cheese, chopped
  • 1 tablespoon chopped parsley (or spring onion), plus extra for sprinkling
  • 1 tablespoon grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground white pepper
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced


Preheat the oven at 150 degrees Celsius.

Beat the eggs in a bowl, then add the chopped chicken franks and mozzarella. Whisk in the tablespoon of parsley, along with the Parmesan, salt and white pepper.

Heat the butter, oil and garlic in a frying pan (with ovenproof handle) or cast iron skillet and once it’s hot and foamy, add the omelette mixture. Cook for about 5 minutes over a gentle heat, without stirring, until the frittata is set underneath and golden.

Transfer the pan to the oven (keeping the handle away from the heat) and cook the frittata until it is set on top. Don’t leave the pan unattended, as this can happen quite quickly, and wear oven mitts to remove the pan.

Let stand for a couple of minutes, then run a knife or flexible spatula round the edge of the frittata and ease it out of the pan, keeping it top-side up onto a board or plate. Cut into 8 triangles (as you would do a pizza), then sprinkle with the extra parsley and serve with home-fried potatoes or salad.
