SPAM Brunch Frittata with Potatoes Spring Onions and Tomatoes

Frittata is an egg-based Italian dish similar to an omelette or crustless quiche, enriched with additional ingredients such as meats, cheeses, vegetables or pasta. Easy, filling, delicious and takes next to no time to make.


340g can SPAM® Chopped Pork and Ham - cut into 2cm cubes
7 large free range eggs
4 tablespoons milk
a few leftover cooked new potatoes - halved
6 baby plum tomatoes - halved
4 spring onions - finely sliced
50g Cheddar cheese - grated
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
a couple of pinches smoked paprika
sea salt and freshly ground black pepper to season


Crack the eggs into a mixing bowl, add the milk and the salt and pepper and mix well using a fork.

Get yourself a nice big frying pan add in the cubes of SPAM® Chopped Pork and Ham.  Add the cooked potatoes along with a sprinkling of smoked paprika.  Fry until golden and lightly browned.

Now add the oil into the hot frying pan and pour in the egg mixture.  Keep bringing the cooked egg and SPAM mixture into the centre of the pan and swirling the mixture around until the egg has formed a “pancake” but is still soft on the top.  Make sure the SPAM and potatoes are evenly distributed

Scatter on the tomatoes and spring onions.  Top with the grated cheese and another sprinkle of smoked paprika.

Pop under a hot grill until the cheese is golden and bubbling and the egg is finished cooking.

Cut the frittata into slices and serve hot straight from the pan and enjoy!
