80 ml   milk

Salt and black pepper to taste

40 ml extra virgin  olive oil

250 ml grated cheddar cheese

180 g   flaked hot-smoked trout

15        olives, pips removed and halved

  • Remove the lid and sprinkle the cheese, onion, smoked trout and olives over the half-cooked egg.
  • Place the pan into the oven (cover the handle with a wet cloth or aluminium foil to prevent it from burning or scorching if it’s not oven-proof)
