Saturday night at the sister’s again, another episode of Peter Capaldi’s mad-eyed Dr Who to savour, plus the usual banquet. Been cooking most of the afternoon; krispy kale with kashews, flatbreads, Quorn ham & cheese frittata. Also used up what was left of last night’s chilli con carne in a chilli frittata (tomorrow’s breakfast). Plus there was an additional Unintentional Frittata, when my attempt at Nigel Slater’s bacon and pea fritters went horribly wrong and I decided to try and rescue the ingredients rather than just dumping them.
(I think I need to buy some more eggs).
Chilli Con Carne FrittataLeft over chilli con carne 3 eggs One yellow pepper, chopped 1/2 small red onion, chopped Handful grated cheddar or other cheese Vegetable oil Paprika and chilli powder
Fry the pepper and red onion until translucent. Add the chilli and heat through.
Beat the eggs and add paprika, chilli powder and salt.
In an oven-proof dish layer the chilli and vegetables, then the cheese, then pour over the egg mixture.
Bake in the oven for 20 minutes at a medium heat.

Pour over the rest of the egg mixture, then the breadcrumbs, then the cheese.
Bake in the oven at medium for 20 minutes.
