Day one of the challenge and I have to admit, I left this until the very last minute – which is not that unusual for me. So the mini frittata was a life saver!
1 egg, 1 dsp cheese, 1 tbsp veg (we had broccoli and carrots left over and I threw in a few peas, any combo you have will work), splash of milk.
I used a muffin case just to keep it tidy in the lunchbox and to give it a bit of a ‘treat’ factor, but you can easily just lightly grease a muffin tin and let the little guy roam free.
Pop it in the oven at 180C for 10-12 minutes – works best to keep an eye out for when it’s firm and golden.

*Multiply the quantities to make a few, add a little salad on the side and you have the grown up lunchboxes sorted too!
