Vegetable Egg Bake

When The Boy and I first started dating, I decided that I would make a roasted vegetable egg bake.  We had Roast Beef for dinner the night before and there was a bunch of veggies left over.  This is one of my favourite things to do with leftover roasted veggies.  It turns out it was the only dish I have ever cooked that The Boy couldn’t finish!

Although it’s become a long standing joke, I would always have hesitated to cook him one again, until my kitchen experiment that lead to this beauty…

It was all terribly simple really.  I had some eggs and some vegetables in the fridge that I needed to use up.  I also had a busy few days ahead so wanted to cook something that I could have for lunch in the middle of the ciaos without any prep or fuss.

I had it for brunch on the day I cooked it, with a side of Slimming World chips.  I never reheat eggs because I am scared of not doing it right, and actually I prefer this recipe cold as I discovered when I had it with salad in the following days.

I will say now that this was HUGE.  I will tell you what I put in but obviously you can take things out or at least scale it down!  As it was an experiment I had no idea how it would turn out.

VEGETABLE EGG BAKE

Ingredients

  • Mushrooms
  • Onion
  • Red Pepper
  • Spinach (I used frozen to save time)
  • Sweetcorn
  • Cherry Tomatoes
  • Ham
  • Eggs (I used 10)
  • Herbs (I used “Italian Herbs”)
  • 1tbsp Milk
  • 80g Low Fat Cheddar Cheese

Method

  1. Chop all the veggies (except the tomatoes) into bite sized chunks and pop in a well Fry Lite’d pyrex dish.
  2. Ribbon the ham and add to the veggies.
  3. Mix well.
  4. Beat the eggs with a dash of milk and the herbs.
  5. Pour over veggies and stir gently.
  6. Cut the cherry tomatoes in half, and push gently into the top so they lay flat.
  7. Cover with tin foil/aluminum foil, and cook for an hour on 160c.
  8. Uncover and add grated cheese.
  9. Cook for approx 20 mins or until the egg is solid in the middle and the cheese is golden.
  10. Serve and enjoy!

Additional Information

This made 4 servings and worked out to just half a Healthy Extra A choice as I used low fat cheese.  It would make more if you weren’t having it as the main part of your meal, of course.  The milk is so minimal per serving that I didn’t syn it.

Any questions, please let me know in the comments section below.

Happy munching!
