Sliced ham, chopped
6 medium eggs
Salt & pepper
30g grated cheddar (1/4 of healthy A per serving)
– heat a pan sprayed with fry light

Baked Vegetable (and smoked salmon) Frittata
Recipe source – Slimming World Magazine issue July 2012
I spotted this recipe last week when flicking though the magazine and it caught my eye for 2 reasons, 1. because I had a bag of macaroni in the cupboard I’d been meaning to use for so long I wasn’t sure it was still in date, and 2. I’m not a huge fan of egg based dishes and fancied trying something new! the added bonus is it is Syn Free!
My husband being the protein junkie that he is insisted some meat went into it (as if the 6 eggs wasn’t enough protein) and a quick fridge rummage threw up a small pack of smoked salmon – perfect!
The recipe called for spring onions, I had none so softened a red onion with the garlic, using fry light.
I roughly sliced the smoked salmon and added it to the beaten eggs along with sweetcorn, peas, roasted pepper (not from a jar, did this myself while pasta cooking using the gas burner on hob), chilli, the cooked macaroni and salt and pepper
It took 45 mins in the oven at 160 (fan) and I served it with spicy sweet potato wedges last night, and left overs today with green salad.
I will make this again, but with about half the amount of pasta.
