  1. Heat 1 tbsp oil in a medium ovenproof frying pan about 20cm wide. Fry the onion over a medium- high heat for 8 mins until soft and lightly golden. Heat the grill to high.
  2. Add the potatoes to the pan, stir in the peas and cook for 2-3 mins, stirring frequently, until the peas are bright green and defrosted.
  3. Beat the eggs in a jug. Pour into the pan to cover the veg, swirling to coat the base of the pan. Once the base has set (about 3 mins), sprinkle over the crumbled cheese and transfer to the grill. Grill for 4-5 mins until set and there’s no visible runny egg but still a little wobble in the middle.
  4. Meanwhile, whisk the vinegar with 2 tbsp oil in a large bowl. Toss in the lettuce and cucumber and mix everything to coat. Serve alongside wedges of the frittata.
