Salty pies are always a great idea, especially if you are preparing apperitisers, a buffet for a party, or a yummy take-away dish!

Eggs are a very nutritious and healthy ingredient (provided the hens were raised and fed in a healthy, sustainable way, of course).

That's why we think you should try out this delicious omelette with its unique broccoli pesto - you'll like it so much you'll want to make it over and over again!
