Ingredients

  • A knob of butter
  • 350g (12oz) brown closed cup mushrooms

Method

  1. Melt the butter in a non-stick pan, add the mushrooms and garlic. Season with salt and pepper and sauté for 6-8 mins until golden and tender.
  2. Meanwhile beat the eggs and nutmeg in a large bowl and season well. Pour into the pan and stir well, cook over a gentle heat for a minute. Shake the pan to level the frittata, cover with a baking sheet or a pan lid and cook over a gentle heat for 6-8 mins or until the egg is almost set.
  3. Scatter over the remaining cheese and cook under a hot grill for a further 4-5 mins until the top is golden and set.
  4. Leave to cool in the pan for pan for 5 mins before cutting into wedges and serving warm.
