Leek, Bacon and Feta Frittata

Leek Bacon and Feta Frittata

I love concocting meals from leftovers, it gives me a real sense of satisfaction that I'm not wasting perfectly good food. This frittata was one such creation, using a couple of leftover leeks, a few rashers of bacon, some reduced feta (£2.99 reduced to 30p - I love a good bargain) and the remains of some fresh mint. It ended up being a tasty Saturday night dinner for hubby and I, while we watched the footie on the box.


| Serves: 4  | Prep Time: 10 Minutes | Cook Time: 10 Minutes | Total Time: 20 Minutes |


  • 2 large leeks, washed, trimmed, cut in half then sliced into half moons
  • 25g Butter
  • 3 Rashers of Smoked Bacon, chopped
  • 180g Feta, crumbled
  • Handful of mint leaves, torn
  • 6 eggs, beaten and seasoned


  • Step 1: In a medium frying pan, melt the butter then add the leeks and fry until soft. Turn the heat up, add the bacon until cooked.
  • Step 2: Preheat the grill. Pour in the eggs, add the feta and mint into the frying pan and give it a good stir. Cook on the heat for around 8 minutes until the top is almost set. 
  • Step 3: Transfer to the grill and grill until nicely browned.
  • Step 4: Transfer to a serving plate and cut into wedges.

No Bake Zingy Lime Crumb Pie

This No-Bake Zingy Lime Crumb Pie is going to be my go to dessert this summer. A zingy lime cream encased in a sweet biscuit crumb - much like a no bake cheesecake...but better! It's seriously yummy and will happily sit in the fridge for a couple of days so there's no need to scoff it all at once if you don't want to 😜. It's quite rich too so the recipe made in a 20cm springform tin will easily feed 8 - 10 people, the perfect size for a family gathering or summer BBQ.

TOP TIPS FOR MAKING NO-BAKE ZINGY LIME CRUMB PIETry using ginger nut biscuits instead of digestives for a more grown up taste.For a 'fancier' dessert, pipe some whipped double cream around the edge of the pie and decorate with slices of lime.I whip the condensed milk, lime juice and double cream with a hand held electric whisk but you can do it by hand if you want to - it will give you a good arm workout!You can make the Zingy Lime Crumb Pie up to 3 days before you need it so it's a great ma…

Honey and Peanut Butter Flapjacks

These flapjacks are now my official weekday grab and go breakfast. I make a big batch on Sunday evening and I'm all set for the week. Oddly I don't really like peanut butter but it works well in this recipe. You can always substitute it for an extra 100g of ordinary butter if you wanted. A handful of raisins makes a nice addition too.
