Leftovers Omelette with Asda's Wonky Veg Box

It's Day 3 of the Wonky Veg Box from Asda. Today we are looking at what we can do with a red pepper and some potatoes and a very small onion. There are lots of onions in the box, but more about that another day. You can see the full list of what else was in it, in my Wonky Veg Box First Impressions or have a look at Day 2's recipe; Easy Stuffed Peppers, if you fancy it. As well as the onion, potato and red pepper from the box, I also had some mushrooms and sausages to use up, so I have no idea what to call this recipe. It's a kind of Brunch Omelette, I suppose. Anyway, here goes...

For this recipe you need to have a rummage in the fridge and see what turns up. It's one of those recipes that helps avoid waste, because it can be made from a variety of ingredients. This saves you money and stops good food from being thrown away. The secret is to use similar quantities of ingredients, diced to similar sizes, so that they all cook through at the same time. 

Diced Peppers and Potatoes

As you can see, the potato and pepper from the box were perfect and you would never know that they were considered too 'wonky' for general consumption. The potatoes were quite small, but that didn't matter, as I only needed one small one anyway. 

Omelette ingredients; peppers, sausages, mushrooms, onion

First, parboil the potatoes for 5-10 mins, until slightly soft
Fry the chopped sausages in a little oil for a few minutes until starting to brown
Add the rest of the ingredients, diced to similar sizes
Fry, turning every few minutes until browned and cooked through
Pour over 4 whisked eggs and leave on the heat until firm underneath
Turn over, if you're brave, or pop under the grill to brown the top!
