• 750 g floury potatoes, peeled and thickly sliced
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 onion, finely sliced
  • 2 courgettes, trimmed and grated
  • 1 tsp fresh thyme leaves
  • 6 large free-range eggs
  • 100 g ricotta
  • 1 tsp lemon zest
  • 100 g mature British Cheddar, grated


  1. 1

    Put the potatoes in a large pan of cold water, bring to the boil and cook for 10-12 minutes until just tender.

  2. 2

    Heat the oil in a non-stick ovenproof frying pan and cook the onion for 8 minutes, until beginning to soften and brown. Add the cooked potatoes. Pat dry the courgettes with kitchen paper and add to the pan with the thyme leaves.

  3. 3

    In a bowl, beat together the eggs, ricotta and lemon zest, then season with freshly ground black pepper.

    Sprinkle the Cheddar over the potatoes and onion and spread out evenly in the pan. Pour the egg mixture over the potato and onion mixture and cook over a medium heat for 15 minutes.

    Carefully turn out onto a board and allow to cool before cutting into wedges.
