  • 8 cherry tomatoes, chopped in half


  1. Preheat the oven 180˚C Fan / 400˚ F / Gas 6.
  2. Cook the potatoes in boiling water for 15 minutes. Drain, cool and dice.
  3. Beat the eggs and milk together in a bowl. Add the diced potatoes, red pepper, peas, Cheddar cheese, tomatoes and basil. Mix together.
