Muffin frittata with smoked salmon and prawns

I’m not a great lover of eggs – scrambled, fried or poached, but I do enjoy a tasty frittata. A frittata is cooked slowly and usually served at room temperature, whereas an omelette is cooked quickly and served immediately.

As with a lot of my dishes, frittatas are great at using up your ” bits left in the fridge”. Add some herbs and seasoning to any flavours and you have a cheap and healthy muffin which is great for picnics, lunches with a salads or even if you make mini muffins they make perfect canapés.

 In my recipe I have added greek yogurt. Sometimes I have used cream or milk, but I do find cooking with yogurt does give excellent results. I often add yogurt to my bread, cakes and sauces.
