  1. Heat the oil in a small ovenproof frying pan over a medium heat. Add the onion, pepper and chorizo and fry for 5 mins until the onion has softened. 
  2. Whisk the sweetcorn into the eggs. Pour the eggs into the frying pan and cook for 3-4 mins until almost set. Top with the cheese and place in the oven. Cook for 3-5 mins until the egg has set and the frittata is golden and bubbling. Top with the coriander. 
  3. Slide onto a plate, cut into wedges and serve with the bread (if using), lettuce, cherry tomatoes and cucumber.

Tip: This frittata is also delicious served cold. Any leftovers will keep in the fridge for up to 3 days.
