The cheese is essential to this, really. It holds the base together and gives it a more crust-like taste. You can add chopped fresh herbs to this, different meats, whatever you like. It’s good hot or cold.
6 medium eggs
1 chunk cooked gammon or ham, cubed (about a handful)
1 bunch spring onions, chopped
2 red peppers, deseeded and diced
1 small block halloumi cheese, coarsely grated
2-3 tbs grated parmesan (even the dried stuff is fine here)
1 ball of mozzarella, sliced
(no salt is needed, the cheeses take care of that.)
Sauté the peppers and spring onions together until very soft, then set aside to cool a little.
Beat eggs and grated halloumi together, mix in the cooked vegetables, oregano, parmesan and chunks of ham and pour it all into a well greased baking dish.
Bake at 170C fan for about 20 minutes until puffed and going golden.
Dot the top with smears of tomato puree, and top with sliced mozzarella, then grill to melt and brown the cheese.
WARNING: the egg + cheese mixture will form into concrete in the corners of a metal tin, so line it well. It stuck so fast to the tin, I had to soak it in boiling water with some of the oxi-action stain remover before it shifted.
