How to cook a Spanish Frittata in an Air Fryer?
By now everyone who knows me and have been to my kitchen will know that I am quite an avid Phillips Air Fryer user. I have tried just about everything in the machine and it ticks all the right boxes for me, convenience, user-friendly, healthy, fast, easy-to-clean to mention but a few.
At the moment I have two machines and they run all day, everyday. We cook, fry, grill, bake and roast in them and even my children can manage making their own fries, something I would never have allowed them to do had it involved the use of hot oil.
However, the acid test ingredient for the Air Fryer was eggs. I love eggs, but it has to be done right. When fried, the yolk must be running, when boiled, the yolk must be runny, but the white set, when making omelets, the eggs must be set, but not rubbery, so you see, I have issues with eggs. The Air Fryer had something to prove and I was ready to put it through the acid test. The first egg recipe I tried in the Air Fryer, was Heuvos Rancheros and what a delight it was. Breakfast was ready in about 4 minutes and the eggs were just perfect.
Making a frittata required a little more time and a few more steps, but it still was the easiest frittata I’ve ever made and I had one pan to clean in the end. So if you need any more convincing, cook with me……
Spanish Frittata with Potato and Chorizo
To fit a small pan or the Phillips Air Fryer pan
3 jumbo free-range eggs
½ chorizo sausage – sliced
1 big potato – par-boiled and cubed
½ cup frozen corn
chopped herbs of your choice – I used parsley
½ wheel of feta
Pour a good glug of olive oil in the pan of the Air Fryer(or your pan on the stove), and add the chorizo, corn and the potato. Set the Air Fryer on 180C and cook the sausage and potato until slightly browned. Break the 3 eggs into a little bowl and beat with a fork. Season with salt and pepper. Pour eggs over the potato and sausage in the pan and top with crumbed feta and chopped parsley. Cook for another 5 minutes, check and if needed cook for another minute or so. When cooked turn out on a plate and serve with a chunky tomato relish and some fresh rocket.
If you are doing it on the stove top and oven, preheat the oven to 180C and then cook the potato and sausage in a oven-proof pan on the stove top. When the potato has browned slightly, beat the eggs in a small bowl and pour over the potato and sausage. Top with feta and parsley and and bake in the oven until the eggs are set.
