    very easy and a great way to hide lots of veg for my fussy eater - will make again but will add 1 more egg to the mix just to hold it together a little better - a great easy healthy meal for the whole family tmrc_emoticons.)

  • This is seriously

    This is seriously delicious!!! I am amazed at how tasty this is and so pleased it turned out perfectly first time. The instructions look a little cumbersome but it is actually quite simple. I did step 1-6 then skipped to 9,10, 8 and did 7 (cheese) last which seemed to reduce the amount of washing/rinsing the TM bowl. Thank you so much for a delicious and healthy meal   Big Smile
