LOCKDOWN ONE BOWL CHEESY HAM & EGG BAKE 

This is a one bowl winner of a lunch! It’s a crustless pie that the whole family will love. Serves 4  

1 ½ cups milk  

3 large eggs 

200g shaved ham, diced  

1 medium onion, diced fine or grated  

1 cup grated cheese 

½ cup plain flour  

1 teaspoon baking powder 

2 teaspoons powdered vegetable or chicken stock  

¼ teaspoon black pepper  

¼ cup chopped parsley (optional)  

  1. Heat oven to 170 C. Generously butter a medium-sized oven proof dish.
  2. In a big bowl, lightly whisk together milk and eggs. Add remaining ingredients and stir to combine.  
  3. Scrape into prepared dish and bake for about 45-55 mins or until golden and cooked through. It will puff up and deflate once removed from the oven.  
  4. Serve hot or cold with chutney and some salad greens 

TIP: Bacon or salmon could be used in place of ham.
