Grilled Veggie Frittata

    13 minutes

    This easy frittata - made up of leftover roasted vegetables and feta - is cooked on the hotplate then finished up under the grill. A great way to use up any leftover vegetables - or any leftovers - for a quick lunch or dinner.

    Serves: 2 

    • 1 tablespoon olive oil
    • 200g leftover roasted vegetables (see footnote)
    • 4 eggs, beaten
    • salt and pepper to taste
    • 100g feta cheese, crumbled

    Preparation:3min  ›  Cook:10min  ›  Ready in:13min 

    1. In a small ovenproof non-stick frying pan, heat 1 tablespoon of olive oil over medium heat. Add the roasted vegetables and cook until heated through, but do not allow them to brown.
    2. Preheat the grill to low.
    3. Once the veggies are heated through, add the beaten eggs, along with salt and pepper to taste. Stir the eggs together with the veggies, then let them cook so the bottom of the frittata can set. Once you see the bottom setting, run a knife or spatula around the edges of the pan to check the frittata isn't sticking.
    4. When the frittata starts to set around the edges, sprinkle the crumbled feta over the top. Place the frypan under the grill for 5 to 10 minutes, until the frittata is fully set and the edges slightly browned. Serve immediately.


    I used probably the equivalent of half a medium parsnip that had been roasted sliced, 3 baby red potatoes that had been quartered and half a carrot that had been sliced. In all it was maybe 200g of veg - though you can use more or less according to what you have. The veggies had been roasted in the first place with thyme, onions, salt and pepper.


    The trick for a perfect frittata is to cook over a medium to low heat and allow the mixture to set slowly without stirring. Stirring once the egg has begun to set will break the mixture apart. Too high a heat will burn the base before the egg is set sufficiently to finish under the grill.

    This fritata was so easy and I liked being able to use my leftovers, so often they get binned. I had a mixture of roasted parsnip, sweet potato, onion and kale. it was delicious and easy!  -  20 Jan 2009  (Review from Allrecipes UK & Ireland)


    Used different ingredients. I added some fresh chopepd herbs to the fritata as my roasted veg didn't have any  -  28 Jan 2009  (Review from Allrecipes UK & Ireland)


    A real time and money saver. My leftover veg included regular potatoes, onion, parsnip and cauliflower. We had this for dinner with oven chips - nice and easy. Thanks for a great recipe  -  28 Jan 2009  (Review from Allrecipes UK & Ireland)
