This is a vastly simplified version from most recipes which is a bit like a baked omelette but imagine it more as a quiche without the pastry.
I've used frozen peas but if you would like to use fresh, go for it, just cook them lightly first.
Pea and Ham Frittata - Serves 2 (leftovers are great in packed lunches)
70g, 2.5oz Good smoked ham (I used black forest ham)
100g, 3.5oz Peas, defrosted if frozen (and blanched if fresh*)
2 tbsp milk
1 tbsp cornflour (cornstarch)
60g, 2oz Grana padano (or vintage cheddar if you prefer)
Preheat the oven to 180oC, 350F, Gas Mark 4.
Line a pie dish or similar with baking paper and spray with spray oil.
Chop up the ham. Mix the egg, milk, cornflour and grated cheese. Mix in the ham and peas. Pour into the prepared dish and bake for 15-20 minutes or until a knife inserted into the middle shows the mix is cooked.
Allow to cool until just warm or cold and serve.
Great for a picnic.
*If you don't have time to wait for peas to defrost, quickly blanch them in boiling water and immediately run under the tap.
