She goes on to crack six eggs onto the baking paper, adding vegetables (she uses capsicum, broccoli and baby spinach, but suggests you can add your own favourite veggie combination) and seasons with salt, pepper and paprika.


"Top it off with some cheese, and cook for 15 minutes at 180 degrees," she instructs. "I slice it in half to make two servings, perfect for a quick and delicious lunch or dinner."
