    1. Heat the olive oil in a frying pan over low heat. Add the onions and cook gently till very soft, letting them caramelise slightly.
    2. Transfer onions to a bowl, leaving behind any excess oil. To the bowl, add the eggs, cheese, breadcrumbs and salt and whisk well.
    3. Heat the frying pan with the oil over medium heat. Pour the egg mixture into the pan, swirling the pan round to make sure the mixture spreads evenly. Cook 5 minutes or until the mixture on the bottom and the edges of the pan sets.
    4. Place a plate on top of the pan and carefully flip the frittata onto it. Slide the frittata back into the pan and cook on the other side for 5 minutes longer.
    5. Serve hot.
