chorizo, cheddar and cherry tomato frittata

Processed with MoldivThis Spanish delight is wonderfully satisfying and very yummy. The eggs once baked, puff up like a soufflé adding to the lightness of this dish. I like to be quite bold with my flavors when making a frittata, and highly recommend you do too. The Chorizo works perfectly here, adding a much needed smoky taste.

Cutting into the frittata’s interior will reveal gooey melted cheddar cheese, specks of gloriously rust coloured Chorizo and red cherry tomatoes. All embraced by a well-seasoned airy eggy sponge. It’s Perfect for a light lunch or brunch. Serve with a fresh ripe tomato salad and a dollop of tzatziki.
