  • ¾ cup (6 fl oz) cream or milk
  • Cracked black pepper

1 Place butter and oil in a 23 cm (9 inch) non-stick frypan over low heat and cook until butter has melted. Add onions to pan.

2 Cook onions, stirring occasionally, for 10-15 minutes or until onions are golden brown, soft and caramelised.

3 Place eggs, cream and pepper in a bowl and whisk to combine. Pour egg mixture over onions in frypan and sprinkle with cheese and thyme. Cook frittata for 5-6 minutes or until it is almost set.

4 To finish cooking, place frittata under a preheated hot grill for 1 minute. Cut it into wedges and serve on hot buttered toast or with a spicy chutney.
