Haven’t got Yorkshire pudding tins? Use muffin tins instead and make ten smaller frittatas. Cook for 12-15 mins.


  1. Pierce the potatoes several times with a fork, then microwave on High for 10 mins.
  2. Set the oven to 180°C/Gas Mark 4.
  3. Peel away the potato skin and cut the potatoes into 1cm (½in) cubes. Heat the olive oil in a frying pan and fry onions for a few mins to soften, then add the potatoes, cook for 5 mins without stirring, to brown them. Add the red pepper to the pan and cook over a medium heat for 5 more mins.
  4. Break eggs into a bowl and beat lightly with a fork. Season well. Divide potato and onion mixture between tins, then carefully pour in the beaten egg.
  5. Bake for 20 mins, until puffed up and golden. Leave to cool for a few mins, then run a knife around each one and lift them out. Serve hot or cold with salad leaves.
