Serves: 4 

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 (70g) packet cubetti di pancetta
  • 250g fresh asparagus, trimmed and cut into 2.5cm pieces
  • 1 small red onion, roughly chopped
  • 6 eggs, beaten
  • salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste
  • 150g feta, crumbled

Prep:15min  ›  Cook:15min  ›  Ready in:30min 

  1. In a 20cm, shallow, ovenproof frying pan over medium high heat, heat the olive oil and add the pancetta. When the pancetta has taken some colour, add the asparagus and onion. Saute until the asparagus is tender and onion translucent.
  2. Reduce heat to medium low. Add the beaten eggs, season with salt and pepper to taste, then stir gently to incorporate with the asparagus mixture. Cook over medium low heat until the bottom of the frittata is set. Meanwhile, preheat the grill.
  3. When the bottom of the frittata is set, sprinkle the crumbled feta over the top. Place the frittata about 8 to 10cm under the grill. Cook until the top is lightly browned and the middle is set, about 4 to 6 minutes. Watch carefully so as not to burn.

Cook's tip

You can easily make this vegetarian by omitting the pancetta. Similarly, if you haven't any pancetta, use chopped streaky bacon instead.


Don't stir the feta into the egg mixture; crumbling the feta over the top of the frittata ensure that whilst grilling the feta loses its water.
