I enjoyed this spinach and cheese strata from Annie’s eats. I didn't use the onion in the recipe and I used some lovely tiger bread instead of French or Italian like suggested. I also added some smoked ham that I had in the fridge. It was nice and very filling but I found the custard wasn’t all absorbed, I think if I did this again I wouldn't put as much milk in.
This was amazing! This channel 4 food recipe for prawn pasta was so incredibly simple. It was about 650 calories a portion although I used macaroni instead of whole-wheat shells. It was very filling (we had 100g dry macaroni each) and it was so yummy, even the boy was impressed!
These sausage balls from Plain chicken were really great, I served them with noodles. I used normal sausage meat and I don't think we have bisquick in the UK so I made a substitution from normal flour, baking powder, salt and butter. From half a block of sausage meat I made 12 balls and it was about 58 calories a ball! I thought they were really nice, better than actual sausages! I think these would be such a great party food idea.
I followed this Abel and Cole recipe for a cheese, egg and broccoli rice bake. I used no onion and I used quorn mince instead of beef. I also substituted eggs for egg whites and I found it was about 500 calories a serving. It was tasty and filling but I think I would leave out the milk in the future, like the strata it didn’t fully absorb.
This recipe from food.com for spanakopita burgers sounded really good but I adapted it so that instead of a burger I just made a wrap. Basically instead of ground chicken I just used a chicken breast, it was a lovely dinner.
I was inspired by this breakfast frittata recipe from Channel 4 to make my own frittata. First I cooked the whole-wheat pasta (about 90g a serving) and also fried up some black pudding and quorn sausage in garlic and oil. I drained the pasta once cooked and added it to the big saucepan which the meat was in. I then beat together 5 egg whites, some milk and herbs and poured it into the mixture. I heat it on the hob and finished it off in the grill. It was really nice, very filling; I think I prefer the recipe with some meat in it rather than the original vegetable option. It worked out about 600 calories a serving.
