Top tips for making Phil Vickery’s potato, apple and tuna frittata

If you’re not keen on the apple you could leave it out of the recipe.

This recipe is great for using up leftover cooked potatoes. You could also add leftover chicken or leftover pork to this frittata. Make sure it's reheated until piping hot though.
