I’m always after quick and easy recipes that the whole family will eat, and with me returning to work at the end of March I’ve been worrying quite a lot about keeping up with all of the fresh, home cooked meals we have been enjoying.

With the financial carnage of December still impacting our bank balance, couple with the (*gasp*) veg shortage this month, I have been looking for ways to bulk out meals we usually eat. This is one of those concoctions, and I have to say it worked bloody well!
My 6-month old loves this, so if you want to make this for your weaning little see the notes next to some of the stages of prep.
This is perfect for freezing, and we have known to argue about whether this tastes better fresh from the pan or a few days later!

So named because this is sort of a Spanish omelette (it has potato in it so that totally counts) and it will feed an army if you need it to. Cook as one big omelette for a quick an easy meal, or spray a muffin tin to make individual omelette muffins which are ideal for lunches. Totally freeze-able, simply grab a portion out of the freezer and chuck in the fridge until defrosted, eat cold or warm through in the microwave.
This is my go-to meal for days when I can’t be arsed to cook properly or the fridge is bare!

This is a recipe I have been using for about 14 years, give or take (my mum had me cooking from about 12!) It’s ideal if you’re time-strapped, cash-strapped, basically anything-strapped!
Also, it blends up well for weaning little ones, although I tend to blend up the mince filling and then stir in some mashed potato.
£5.50 for the whole meal (including veg on the side)
