A bake to use left overs

‘We all have lots of leftovers after celebrations and this bake is nearly better than the actual meal’

You will need:

500g cooked meat or vegetables or a mix of both (whatever is left over, chicken, beef, pork or just vegetables
200g spinach, barely cooked
2 tablespoons chopped fresh herbs of your choice
2 tablespoons Gran Padano
150g grated Mozzarella
150g grated cheddar
1/2 cup Mayonnaise
1/2 cup yoghurt
a grating of nutmeg
1 clove garlic or use minced garlic
1 onion, finely chopped and sautéed in a touch of olive oil or use freeze dried onions if you are in a rush
Salt and Pepper
Cherry tomatoes and more fresh herbs to garnish

Heat oven to 180 C.
Chop the cooked meats and vegetables into bite size pieces and mix without breaking up too much.
Use Non stick baking spray. Place the chopped meat and vegetables neatly on the dish. Cook at 180 C for half an hour. Allow to cool.

In a large bowl combine all the ingredients together but do not over mix. Keep a spoon of each cheese to sprinkle over the top of the dish.

Bake in a preheated oven for half an hour.

Take out of the oven and top with cherry tomato halves. Return to the oven for another half an hour.

Take out of oven, garnish with more fresh herbs and let it stand for at least 10 minutes before serving to allow the ingredients to firm up.
