This is one of my favourite recipes that everyone in the house will eat without a battle because it’s so easy to adjust depending on what you like and what’s in the fridge that needs to use up. I’ve also added corn kernels, sundried tomatoes, asparagus or halved cherry tomatoes and feta to the mix before And it’s still delish!
I make extra egg mixture to make mini quiches in the muffin tray for the kids.
This is a tasty recipe but not really one for the weeknight rush after work.
I’ve adapted this recipe and borrowed the pic from Taste
