  • chopped red onion
  • glug of Yorkshire rapeseed oil
  • herbs, e.g. fresh thyme
  • green salad e.g. rocket

  • seasoning to taste


  1. find a great campsite, set up van, tables, chairs & place beers in the beck to chill
  2. chop the onion and set aside
  3. slice/chop the Yorkshire Chorizo
  4. warm a frying pan and a good glug of Yorkshire rapeseed oil, add the chorizo and onion and gently fry releasing the smoked paprika & oils into the rapeseed oil, its better to use a little too much oil so you can save some for a salad dressing, pour of excess oil into a jam jar to save for a salad dressing
  5. mix the egg, Parmesan, herbs & seasoning and pour into the pan with the chorizo
  6. if you have a grill swap to the grill to complete cooking otherwise carefully turnover the frittata & cook other side
