The day before, I remove what I need from the freezer and let them defrost overnight in the fridge. In the morning, it’s quick to add them to our lunchboxes for later on in the day.
I also like the endless variety of flavours and additional ingredients you can add to the basic recipe:
- Spinach and feta
- Grated cheese and crispy bacon bits
- Grated cheese and onion
- Peppadew and feta
- Grated cheese and Herbs
- Grated cheddar, bacon and sweet corn
- Chunky Boerewors
Looking at the above list, it is quite obvious that I rather like cheese!
I found a packet of salmon off-cuts at a bargain price, so my flavour du jour is Salmon & Garlic. Full of excellent omega oils and garlic to keep us healthy over winter.
