Funny face frittata

  • Serves: 2
  • Prep: 10 mins
  • Cook: 20 mins

I like to decorate my frittatas with some fresh vegetables to create a smiley face so it’s more appealable to my 3yr old daughter, the 7yr old doesn’t need convincing! This is a very popular dish with my girls and a quick and easy way to get them to eat something nutritious. You can eat it warm or cold.


  • 2 tsp olive oil
  • 4 large British Lion eggs
  • 50ml milk
  • 2 small new potatoes, thinly sliced
  • 100g crumbled feta
  • freshly ground black pepper
  • 6 cherry tomatoes, halved
  • 3 baby red, yellow and orange peppers, chopped
  • 50g small broccoli florets


  1. Preheat the oven to 180°c / gas 4
  2. Rub the oil over the inside of two 10 x 10 x 4cm square oven-proof dishes
  3. Crack the British Lion eggs into a bowl. Add the milk and whisk until light and fluffy
  4. Add half of the crumbled feta and a little ground black pepper
  5. Arrange the sliced potatoes on the base of each dish, add the chopped vegetables, reserving a few pieces to make the smiley faces
  6. Pour the egg and cheese mixture over the vegetables and sprinkle with the remaining feta
  7. Use the reserved vegetables to make smiley faces on the top of each dish
  8. Cook for 20 minutes, until the frittata is golden brown and serve either hot or cold
