This is a very tasty and fast vegetarian snack for your kids. I ate it hot, Harry loved it cold (perfect for lunch boxes) and you can even use any leftovers as sandwich filler.

I love simple cooking.

Tip: Cut into squares, store in an airtight container in the fridge.

    Could you freeze this??

      You can freeze it, but the egg is at the bottom and egg tends to not defrost that well, so it’s doable but it will be nicer fresh. :)Ax

    I’d also like to know if this is freezable. I was also wondering if there’s an alternative to all the eggs? Do they just act as a binding agent or do they have another purpose?

      Hi Catherine, the eggs do act as a binder and create a base for this slice so I am not sure you can really do without them. You might be better to make a potato bake with a few vegetable layers for something similar 🙂 Ax

    Hi great recipe, what could I use as an alternative to capsicum??

      You could just leave it out or add other veggies?
