To be completely honest, I have NO idea where I got this recipe… I have a feeling that my Aunty Joan found it in a women’s weekly magazine many moons ago and made it for the family. I think we have been making it ever since!

This is the original recipe that is in my special recipes book, but now I add all sorts of things to it. I add grated carrot instead of bacon when I want to make it vegetarian, I just add grated carrot as well as bacon too. If it is growing in the garden, I always put in some cooked (drained) chopped up spinach as it just adds an extra dimension.

I have also just adapted it for the Thermomix and because the it chops a lot finer it has a great taste without chunky bits, so you could possible hide more vegetables if you so desire! (evil cackle)

I forgot to take pictures (I’ve been so busy and I was making it for lunches), but it really is an easy recipe, so you don’t need photographic help! If you like this recipe you would love my Blog on Mini Vegetable Frittatas.
