Serves: 4
Preparation Time: 15 minutes
Cook Time: 35 minutes



1 quantity of batter (use your own recipe how you like it for thickness or thinness)
Small knob of butter, plus extra for greasing
2 tbsp finely grated parmesan
10 rashers smoked streaky bacon, chopped
2 red onions, thinly sliced
5¼ oz cheddar, grated
Handful of cherry tomatoes
2 handfuls spinach
Handful of fresh herbs (rosemary, parsley) chopped



Heat oven to 450°F/230C/gas mark 8.

Make up the batter and set aside. Grease a large, round or oval, ceramic or glass dish, about 9 inches wide, and dust it with the grated Parmesan.

Heat the butter in a frying pan. Sizzle the bacon for about 5 mins until crisp, then leave to cool. Sauté the onions and tomatoes until slightly soft and put the spinach in. Stir until spinach has wilted.

Tip the bacon, onion, tomatoes, spinach and cheddar into the batter and stir until completely combined. Tip the batter into the prepared dish so it comes almost to the top, then bake for 30-35 mins until puffed up and golden. Bring piping hot to the table and serve straight from the dish with a crisp salad.
