  1. 6 eggs
  2. 1/2 onion chopped
  3. 1 tsp Paprika
  4. 1 cup of left over veggies of any kind cut into small pieces, I used broccoli.
  5. Left over roast chicken cut into small pieces about 2 cups.
  6. Pepper
  7. 2 pinches of sea Salt
  8. 1 tsp Ghee
  1. Add ghee to an ovenproof frypan and fry onion and paprika until onion is soft.
  2. Add the chicken and veggies and fry for 5 minutes in the pan. Turn the grill in the oven on about 200 degrees (392F). Spread the chicken and veggies evenly in the pan.
  3. In a bowl whisk the eggs and add sea salt and pepper add this slowly to the pan to cover all the sides and middle and shake pan to get the egg in all the gaps.
  4. Let the frittata cook on the bottom for 5 mins or until you see the sides are starting to thicken and cook.
  5. Then carefully place frypan on the top rack under the grill on medium high heat with handle facing out and let the top of the frittata cook until it is firm and a little brown.
  6. Remove and cover with a dinner plate and flip the pan around so that the frittata ends up on the plate and out of the pan in one motion without breaking it.
  7. Season then serve.
