Breakfast Frittata of Champions
Make the Most Important Meal Count
2 - 4
Filling and packed with flavour, this frittata really is a breakfast of champions. The most important ingredient is the beef, so be sure to buy the best possible NZ Beef as it will make all the difference to the finished dish. Tip: This frittata is also perfect for picnics. Make ahead, allow it to cool and then take it on your next adventure. And if you can’t find bocconcini, then chunks of smoky Cheddar will certainly please.

250g Quality Mark beef mince
1 Tbsp fennel seeds
200g button mushrooms
100 baby spinach
salt and pepper
70g Parmesan cheese
handful of chopped Italian parsley
Heat a tablespoon of olive oil in the frying pan over medium heat. Add the onion, fennel seeds and mushrooms and sauté for 5-6 minutes
Then add the spinach, turning to wilt. Transfer the mixture to a bowl and set aside.
Break up the beef mince and shape into rough walnut-sized balls. Increase the frying pan heat to medium-high and add the mince balls, turning to brown the meat all over.
Preheat your oven grill to high.
In a bowl, whisk the eggs with a pinch each of salt and pepper, 50 grams of the Parmesan and the chopped parsley.
When the meatballs are nicely browned, reduce the pan to a low-medium heat and return the onion, fennel, mushrooms and spinach to the pan.
Pour in the egg mixture, making sure it fills the pan right the way around, then tear up the bocconcini and dot throughout the frittata.
Cook for 4-5 minutes, then sprinkle with the remaining Parmesan and place under the grill for a further 4-5 minutes or until the frittata is golden brown and the egg is cooked.
Slide out of the pan onto a board or platter and serve warm with hot coffee and toasted bread.
