  • 1 cup of almond milk (or your preferred milk)
  • 1 tablespoon organic butter

  1. Optional step - Drain haloumi and slice into small pieces approximately 1cm thick. Heat olive oil in a fry pan on medium heat and cook for 1-2 minutes each side. Transfer to a plate and set aside.
  2. Pre-heat your oven grill to moderate-high heat
  3. Whisk together the eggs and almond milk in a large bowl and season with the salt and pepper.
  4. Heat butter in large fry pan on medium high heat and add the onion, garlic and bacon, cooking for 5 minutes or until the onion translucent and the bacon is light golden.
  5. Add the capsicum, mushrooms and tomatoes, cooking for 3-5 minutes or until the mushroom softens.
  6. Add the spinach and haloumi to the main pan, making sure that there is an even distribution in the pan.
  7. Reduce heat to low and pour egg mixture into the pan, making sure it evenly coats everything.
  8. Crumble Feta on top, cook for 8 - 10 minutes, or until base starts to form.
  9. Remove fry pan from stove top and place into oven under grill. Grill for a further 7- 10 minutes, or until golden brown.
  10. Remove, and allow to cool to the point where you and three friends can devour it!


The ingredients are completely optional, so if you don't or cannot eat dairy (or any of the other ingredients) feel free to swap for something else. That is what is so great about this fritata as you can add what you want and it will still be super tasty.
