Frittata with Vine Tomatoes


  • 6 size 7 Farmer Brown eggs
  • 1 pinch of baking powder
  • 3 vines of small, ripe tomatoes
  • 1/2 onion, diced or sliced thinly
  • 1/2 cup grated parmesan or tasty cheese
  • Fresh thyme
  • Salt and pepper


  1. Lightly grease a 27cm pie dish or tin with oil(or line with baking paper) and preheat oven to 180'C.
  2. Beat the eggs together. Add the onion and cheese, and season with salt and pepper and softly combine ingredients with a fork or spoon.
  3. Pour the mix into the lined tin and place the vine tomatoes on the top. Sprinkle over the fresh thyme.
  4. Bake for approx. 30 minutes, until the mixture is no longer wobbly in the middle, and it’s crisp and golden on the top.
  5. Serve warm or cold, with a fruit or vegetable relish or chutney, and a crisp green salad.
