Ingredients

  • 30ml/2tbsp olive oil
  • 1 bunch spring onions, sliced
  • 2 cloves garlic, crushed
  • 450g/1lb young spinach leaves, washed
  • 4 large British Lion eggs, beaten
  • 1 (200g) pack feta cheese, crumbled
  • large pinch of grated nutmeg
  • salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 225g/8oz or 4 large sheets of filo pastry
  • 75g/3oz butter, melted

Method

  1. Preheat the oven to 190C/Fan 170C/Gas Mark 5. Heat the oil in a large pan, add the onion and garlic and sauté for 2 mins. Add the spinach, packing it into the pan. Cover with a lid and cook for 3 mins or until the leaves are wilted. Transfer to a sieve and press out the excess juices. Add the eggs, cheese, nutmeg, a little salt and plenty of freshly ground black pepper to the spinach then mix well.
  2. Brush the inside of a 25x20 (10x8in) rectangular baking tin with butter. Brush the filo pastry sheets all over with melted butter. Lay the first sheet of pastry down in the tin, pressing it into the base and sides. Place the second sheet on top at a ninety degrees right angle - the pastry will overhang the tin quite a lot. Repeat with the remaining two sheets of pasty.
  3. Spoon the filling into the pastry lined tin. Fold over the overlapping pastry, brushing with more butter as necessary. Brush the top with the remaining butter. Bake for 50-60 mins until the pastry is golden brown and crisp. Remove from the oven and cover with a teatowel for 5 mins. Mark the pie into 6 squares and allow to cool. Serve warm or cold with salad.

Using leftovers to create a delicious Monday meal. What can you find in your kitchen tonight? #foodinspo #mondaymeals #leftovers #dinner #eggsThese spicy potato Scotch eggs are a great vegetarian addition to any lunchbox or weekend meal with family/friends. Serve with mango chutney and salad and you’re ready to go! #lunchboxideas #britishlioneggs #britisheggweek #scotcheggs #letsgetcrackingHere are some of our top tips for avoiding that hangry feeling. For more tips from a nutritionist and hunger-busting recipes click the link in our bio. 
1.	Hangry management is better than a hangry cure - stave off any danger of a hangry episode by choosing protein-based foods over carb or fat-based options; research shows that when eating meals of equal calories, those with a higher protein content help to keep you fuller for longer
2.	Stay fully hydrated - dehydration can be deceptive, making you think you’re hungry when actually you’re just thirsty - remember to drink plenty, especially in fluctuating temperatures
3.	DO NOT miss breakfast - the age-old mantra of ‘breakfasting like a king’ is one that still rings true; you should always eat a substantial breakfast, choose something speedy to make like our Avocado and Prosciutto Crunch Omelette… no excuses!
4.	Not any old breakfast - it’s vital that you don’t load up on sugary carbs at breakfast time. Help to avoid hangry related rage on the road, or tantrums on the train, by opting for high protein brekkie options like Fast Florentine eggs; the high protein content will keep hanger at bay until lunchtime
5.	Stay satiated – choose foods with low energy but high nutrient density and eat them frequently.  If you don’t like big meals, or your lifestyle isn’t conducive to the traditional ‘three square meals’, make sure you graze on the right foods.  Hangry feelings can make you reach for a quick fix sugary snack but picking a protein-based power snack instead – like Spicy Potato Scotch eggs – will deliver just enough carbs to stem the hanger while the eggy protein will give you protection against future hangry outbursts
