cheese and lentil bake

I am posting this crank recipe because it is amazing, easy, nutritious and loved by all small people. Okay granted it has only been my daughter and niece but still.

Also it is an adult friendly meal so easy on the multi meal prep.


Serves 6 in a oval dish or 23cm cake pan.

225g (8oz) red lentils450ml (3/4pt) water1 large onion25g (1oz) butter or margarine100g (4oz) cheddar cheese – grated5ml (1tsp) mixed herbs1 free-range egg25g (1oz) wholemeal breadcrumbs salt and pepper to taste (adult bit)

I add a small tin of sweetcorn because I think adds extra flavour. Optional though.


Cook the lentils in the measured water until soft and all the liquid has been absorbed.Chop the onion.Melt the butter in a saucepan and fry the onion until transparent.Combine all the ingredients together and press into an oiled sandwich tin.Bake in the oven at 190°C (375°F/Mark 5) for 30 minutes.Serve hot or cold, in wedges.

I served it with new potatoes and green veg.

I won with this meal,
