You can be as creative as you like with this resourceful 'rescue recipe.' Whatever you've got in the fridge that needs using up can be added to this substantial dish. Leftover cheese, cooked vegetables, spicy sausages and cooked meats such as ham all work well. Cut into wedges and serve as a light snack or light lunch with a green salad.

 1 tbsp olive oil
 350 g potatoes, sliced thinly
 1 large onion, sliced thinly
 6 large eggs
 Black pepper
 Leftover sausage or cooked meat
 Coriander sprigs
 A handful of grated Cheese

Heat the olive oil in a large pan, add the potatoes and onion and cook gently for 20-30 minutes until softened, without browning the onion.


Beat the eggs in large bowl, season well and add the potatoes and onion mixture. Combine well and tip into a non-stick frying pan.


Cook over a gentle heat for 10-12 minutes until set and scatter the top with the sausage slices and grated cheese and place under a hot grill until golden brown. Serve with coriander sprigs and a crisp green salad.
