  1. I highly recommend these, they are simply delicious and when you make them its like a rainbow of colours with the ingredients. I would never have thought to pop an egg in the middle but its really yummy. I have also made the recipe as a slice without the egg. A great go to recipe to have on hand in the freezer for when friends drop round for lunch, I cut them in half down the middle before heating them and then serve them on a plate, they look impressive!

    • Jennie, making this as a slice is a really good idea. I am going to have to try that myself! :)

  2. Will these freeze?

    • Hi Cerina! Yes, they will. After they’ve been frozen, I’d suggest reheat them in the oven and serve warm :)
