Love your leftovers Fritata and Summer Slaw


Knife, chopping board, non stick frying pan (or silicone muffin tray) Large salad bowl, clean jam jar with lid for dressing.


  • Prep your fillings (chop into bite size chunks)

  • Whisk eggs, add a little salt and pepper

  • Put frying pan on medium heat and add 1 tbsp olive oil

  • If using potatoes, or mushrooms, fry these in the oil first for a few minutes

  • Add whisked eggs to the pan

  • Evenly distribute ingredients over the eggs, finally the cheese.

  • To evenly cook the egg, run a spatula around the edge of the fritatta, whist tilting pan, to loosten, and allow uncooked egg to seep behind. 

  • Finally place the fritatta under a hot grill to brown off the top.

  • Remove and allow to cool slightly, whilst you prep the slaw.

  • Finely slice the cabbage, grate the carrots, chop spring onions, break nuts in half, chop herbs.
