The Monster is currently not a fan of sandwiches (this could all change in a matter of hours, toddlers are fickle.) This means I have to come up with alternatives when it comes to his lunchbox for playschool. A firm favourite (for now) is Spanish Omelette. Filling, super easy to make and I can pop veggies in it too, whats not to like.
This doesn’t freeze to well unfortunately, however it does last in the fridge for about 4 days and is so good the whole family will be at it anyway so it won’t last long! It is great hot or cold.
- 5 eggs
- 1 small potato (boiled and sliced)
- 1/4 cup grated mature cheddar
- 1/4 cup finely chopped veggies (I used onion, mushrooms, peppers, tomato)
Brush a small frying pan with olive oil. Place on a low/medium heat. In a bowl whisk the eggs and cheddar together, set aside. Put the finely chopped veggies in the pan and gently cook until softened. Pour over half the egg mix. Lay the potatoes into the egg. Pour over the remaining egg mix and continue to cook until the bottom of the omelette is set. remove from the hob and place under a grill to cook the top of the omelette until set (about 3 mins).
Turn out onto a plate. can be served hot or cold.
