Healthy pumpkin and cheese frittata

We like recipes that keep the kids happy. If they are just a touch on the ‘healthy’ side, even better.

This pumpkin and cheese frittata ticks both boxes. The kids enjoyed the simple flavours of this dish. It was also suitable for freezing, so ideal if you find yourself in a pickle mid-week and don’t want to spend your hard-earned dollars on a takeaway meal.

If not freezing, store in an airtight container in the fridge for up to two days.
