Green Bean Frittata with Chorizo – Easy Breakfast Recipe

Green Bean Frittata with Chorizo - Easy Breakfast Recipe

I love eating eggs in all forms and shapes, but frittata and soft boiled eggs are my two favourite ways to eat them for breakfast. I don’t like spending too much time cooking in the morning, so this green bean frittata is perfect because there aren’t many ingredients to chop up, and if I have some leftover cooked green beans, it’s even quicker.

Here’s what you’ll need for the green bean frittata:

  • 1 spring onion, chopped finely
  • a few slices of chorizo (I buy mine from the farmer’s market, so it’s all natural). chopped
  • around 4 tsp of butter or extra virgin olive oil
  • a cup of green beans, tips cut off and sliced to 1 inch pieces
  • 4 eggs
  • a pinch of chimichurri spices (optional)
  • salt and pepper

Recipe serves 2.


  1. Melt half of the butter in a pan, add the spring onion and chorizo, and cook until the onion softens (around 5 minutes).
  2. Add the beans and cook for 10 minutes. If you’re using leftover green beans, you can skip to the next step straight away.
  3. Beat the eggs. Pour all the vegetables into the bowl with the eggs and mix to coat the vegetables with the egg mixture.
  4. Melt the remaining half of the butter in the pan and add the egg and vegetable mixture. Cover the lid and cook until the frittata is completely thickened up.
  5. Once it’s ready, take off the lid, remove from the fire, and leave to stand for a few minutes. It will solidify and will be so much easier to slice and transfer to the plates for serving.

I like serving the frittata with some leftover steamed broccoli, with some sourdough bread and butter, or with a tiny salad.
