Cook's notes

Oven temperatures are for conventional; if using fan-forced (convection), reduce the temperature by 20˚C. | We use Australian tablespoons and cups: 1 teaspoon equals 5 ml; 1 tablespoon equals 20 ml; 1 cup equals 250 ml. | All herbs are fresh (unless specified) and cups are lightly packed. | All vegetables are medium size and peeled, unless specified. | All eggs are 55-60 g, unless specified.


Preheat the oven to 180°C.

Using a fork, beat the eggs and oil together in a small bowl.

Combine the remaining ingredients in a separate bowl. Add the egg and oil mixture and stir to combine. 

Pour the mixture into a baking dish and spread evenly. Bake for 45 minutes or until golden brown.

Allow to cool slightly before slicing.
