Ina’s Tip

Funny Face!
For a savoury main attraction for a kids party give the Frittata a funny face!


Adjust the oven rack to the middle position and preheat the oven to 200°C.

Mix the butternut cubes, halved tomatoes and onion in a mixing bowl, season with 1 t (5 ml) Vegetable Spice and pour over Honey Mustard Dressing. Stir through.

Spread out in a large ovenproof frying pan and roast for 30 – 35 minutes until vegetables are browning and softening. Leave to cool for 5 – 10 minutes. In the meantime, beat the eggs, milk and ½ t (2,5 ml) Vegetable Spice together.

Sprinkle the feta over the vegetables. Pour egg mixture over and mix in lightly. Return pan to the oven and bake for 15 – 18 minutes until golden brown and firm.

Serve in wedges with a salad and fresh bread.
