Polenta may not be a usual frittata ingredient but it adds great texture and flavour to this ham and corn version.

Ingredients

Olive oil

2 tsp

Garlic

1 clove(s), crushed

Red onion

1 small, thinly sliced

Skim milk

¾ cup(s), (185ml)

Instant yellow polenta

85 g, (1/2 Cup)

Cheddar cheese

cup(s), grated, (40g)

Leg ham

50 g, coarsely chopped

Canned corn kernels in brine, rinsed, drained

125 g, rinsed

Egg(s)

2 medium, lightly beaten

Fresh basil

cup(s), extra to serve

Lemon juice

2 tbs

Cherry tomato

200 g, quartered

Baby spinach leaves

120 g

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 200°C. Line a 3cm deep, 20cm (base measurement) glass or ceramic pie plate with baking paper.
  2. Heat oil in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Cook garlic and half the onion, stirring, for 5 minutes or until softened. Add milk and ½ cup (125ml) water and bring to the boil. Whisk in polenta until smooth. Cook, stirring, for 5 minutes or until thick. Remove from heat. Stand, stirring occasionally, for 5 minutes to cool slightly.
  3. Add cheese, ham and corn and stir until combined. Add eggs and stir until combined. Season. Spread mixture over base of prepared plate. Bake for 20 minutes or until light golden and firm to the touch.
  4. Meanwhile, combine basil, lemon juice, tomato, spinach and remaining onion in a large bowl. Serve frittata cut into wedges with spinach salad garnished with extra basil leaves.
