Method

  1. Heat the grill to medium. Boil the peas and beans for 4 mins until just tender, then drain well. Beat the eggs with a splash of milk and some seasoning. Slice 4 thin, round slices of goat’s cheese (you’ll use about half the log), roughly chop or crumble the rest into pieces, then stir this into the eggs with the veg and mint.
  2. Lightly oil an ovenproof shallow pan and place on the heat. Pour in the egg mix and gently cook on the hob for 8-10 mins until there is just a little un-set mix on the surface. Top with the slices of goat's cheese, then put under the grill, and grill until set, golden and the cheese is bubbling.

I made this recipe yesterday. I felt like I was adding a huge amount of cheese by following the recipe so I held back and the goats cheese did lose some flavour during cooking and I really regretted it then! So, even though it feels like you're adding a ridiculous amount - do it!! I can't wait to try it again and load it with cheese and some cherry tomatoes, maybe some chicken!

My husband has become addicted to this recipe. I make it three times a week for lunch. It's light, fresh and easy. Well worth giving it a try.

This looks absolutely lovely, but it would really be an idyllic world when I always had some goat's cheese just lying around in the fridge..!

I've just cooked this for dinner and it was very tasty. Would definitely make it again.

It turned out really well AFTER I rescued it from the recipe. The instructions tell you to cook the whole thing under the grill and, predictably, that led to a very crispy top and uncooked middle. Fixed it by transferring into a frying pan at the end. Delicious and so light.
