1 medium potato, peeled and cut into 1cm dice drained

½ medium sweet potato peeled and cut into 1cm dice

1 tbsp olive oil

1 cup baby spinach leaves, washed

1 x 180g tin pink salmon in spring water bones removed drained

½ cup tasty cheese

8 eggs, lightly whisked


  1. Preheat the oven to 200°C.
