They can be cooked on the BBQ, in a frying pan or the grill! You can also make extra and freeze for another day? (Use foil/greaseproof paper to separate them before freezing).

Defrost before cooking and ensure they are cooked through.

Sweetcorn or mushrooms work well in the mixture too. Why not add some chilli flakes for some heat?

'Lighten up' this recipe and serve with a wholegrain bun. If serving with chips ( try not to have both the chips and the bun, best to choose one or the other) either make oven baked potato wedges (leave the skin on) and serve with roasted vegetables or salad
