  • 2 spring onions , ends trimmed off
  • 4 tablespoons of frozen peas , defrosted
  • 1 courgette , halved with the ends cut off
  • 2 slices of ham
  • 100g feta cheese
  • 4 eggs


  • STEP 1

    Ask a grown-up helper to switch the oven on to 180C/ 160C fan/gas 4. Snip or cut up the spring onions and put them in a bowl. Add the peas to the bowl.

  • STEP 2

    Grate the courgette using your rotary grater, one half at a time, then add it to the bowl.

  • STEP 3

    Cut the ham into pieces with your scissors, if you do this over the bowl it will fall straight in.

  • STEP 4

    Break the feta into the bowl by crumbling it with your hands.

  • STEP 5

    Crack the eggs into a bowl and, if any bits of shell fall in, scoop them out with a spoon. Whisk the eggs until the yolks are mixed into the white.

  • STEP 6

    Pour the eggs into the other bowl and stir. Brush a round ovenproof dish, about 16cm across, with oil. Tip everything into the dish. Ask a helper to put the dish in the oven for 30 minutes or until the egg is set. Serve with salad and crusty bread.


You'll need children's scissors with metal blades or a small knife, depending on your child's age. A rotary grater is kinder to little knuckles.
