Green Eggs & Ham Fritatta

fritatta-1

Yes the name of this recipe is a link to one of my favourite childhood books by Dr Suess. After eating this fritatta I’m sure you would say you like to eat green eggs & ham (or bacon) anywhere. This is a recipe that is just in my brain & you can use any vegetables or any cheese, perfect for breakfast, lunch or dinner, great for lunch boxes too – See my live face book video of me making the dish here. I’d love to know any of your variations, I sometimes make a fritata with smoked salmon as well .

Billy Law’s Bacon Kaboom!

What to make when your teenage son has his mate over for dinner? Well the Bacon Kaboom of course! My son & I bought Billy Law’s cookbook called Man Food & we had bought it mainly to try this epic looking recipe so I decided it was time to give it a go. Of course I thermofied (technical term for converting a non Thermomix recipe to a Thermomix recipe) it where I could 🙂 The mince mixture was done in the Thermomix I used fresh garlic & herbs & chopped them first in the Thermomix I also chopped the cheese in the Thermomix too.

after rolling up the meatloaf then you have to wrap the meatloaf in the bacon weave.

Huon Valley Meat Co

Have you been to the coolest looking butcher in town? Huon Valley Meat Co have amazing top quality hormone free, grass feed meat. Sometimes it can be a challenge to style meat so we gave it go! It was the perfect day for it because someone had brought in their Thermomix from home for some recipe development – guess what was the star of this photo shoot? See my styling & photography buddy Ellie’s photos on her blog.
