Stilton & sprouting broccoli frittata

Stilton & sprouting broccoli frittata

breakfast | serves 4

I’ve used stilton and gorgeous charred broccoli for added tang and crunch – beautiful!

1. Preheat the oven to 220C/gas 7. Blanch the broccoli stalk pieces in salted boiling water for 1–2 minutes, then drain. Toss with the florets in a little olive oil, then griddle over a high heat for 8–10 minutes, or until charred and nearly tender. Leave to cool in a bowl, drizzling over a little more oil.
2. In a bowl, whisk the eggs, season with salt and pepper, then stir in the parsley stalks, cheeses and broccoli.
3. Melt the butter with a splash of olive oil in a 20cm ovenproof dish over a medium heat. Pour in the egg mix, quickly stir a few times to let the egg settle, then cook for 2–3 minutes, or until it starts to set.
4. Pop the pan in the oven for about 8–10 minutes, or until the frittata is puffed up, nicely golden and completely set.
5. Meanwhile, make the salad. Toast the pine nuts in a dry pan over a medium heat, moving them frequently, until golden all over. In a serving bowl, toss the parsley leaves and toasted nuts in a splash of extra virgin olive oil and a squeeze of lemon juice. Then take your gorgeous frittata out of the oven and serve immediately with the salad.
