Using leftovers are a great way to reduce food waste and make a tasty meal at the same time!

Makes approximately 4 servings

Preparation time is approximately 5 minutes

Cooking time is approximately 10 minutes


Leftover veg e.g. roast or mash potatoes, parsnips, carrots, cabbage, sprouts etc

Any leftover cooked meat, chopped i.e. roast chicken, chorizo, bacon, pork (optional)

1 free-range egg

2 tablespoons of olive oil

1 tablespoon of mayonnaise

Fresh parsley or 2 tablespoons mixed herbs (optional)


1. Chop the vegetables together (with any leftover meat if required).

2. Mix the mayonnaise and egg together, then use to bind together the vegetables and chicken.

3. Heat the oil in a non-stick pan and fill with the veg mixture.

4. Fry over a moderate heat for 5 minutes.

5. Place the pan under a hot grill to cook the top until golden brown.

You can make these into individual patties if preferred and just cook on both sides in the pan (or grill on both sides).



'Lighten up' remove the mayonnaise completely or use a low fat version

Adding herbs and spices will give it extra flavour, mixed herbs or cayenne pepper.

Or serve with sweet chilli sauce for an extra kick?

Pop a poached or fried egg on top for a super filling protein brunch?
