Millet Bake

Recently we found ourselves with surplus silverbeet and a pile of eggs... Hmmmm what to make - Millet Bake of course.  I'm sure every Mumma probably has their own personal Millet Bake recipe, because really it is such a versatile meal, but I thought I'd share what went into ours this yummy evening recently. 

::Millet Bake::
1/2 a big bunch of silverbeet finely shredded
1 onion finely diced
1/4 block of Bulgarian Sheep's Feta crumbled
3C of fluffy, cooked millet (I love the way it goes all fluffy when it's cooked,
like a soft cuddly grain cloud!)
6 eggs
1C of your choice of milk
1T of mixed dried or fresh (of course you will need more than 1T if using fresh) herbs
1t of Himalayan Salt
Paprika to dust

• Oil lightly a deep sided baking dish
• Lay in the shredded silverbeet
• Sprinkle over the onion
• Crumble the feta over next
• Spoon in the fluffy millet
• In a bowl, mix the eggs with the milk, herbs and salt - whisk until well combined
• Pour over the top of the millet and make sure the egg mix covers the millet and is evenly dispersed in the dish
• Dust lightly with Paprika
• Cook in a pre-heated 180ºC oven for about 1 hour,
or until the top is golden and the bake is 'set'
• Top with Gomasio and serve with a
green Springtime salad drizzled with apple cider vinegar.
