Total Time 30 minutes
Servings 2 people


  • 100 g (3.5oz) almond meal or almond flour
  • 6 eggs
  • 100 g (3.5oz) cheddar or other cheese grated
  • 100 g (3.5oz) ham
  • salad to serve
  • mustard to serve


  1. Turn your oven to 200C (400F). Line the base and sides of a 24cm (9ispring form pan with baking paper. If you can’t be bothered you can just grease but the eggs do like to stick!
  2. Spread almond meal over the base of your prepared pan. Mix eggs, cheese and a pinch of salt in a bowl. Pour egg mixture over the almond meal.
  3. Bake for 12-15 minutes or until the eggs are set and the pie is puffing up and slightly golden.
  4. Serve wedges of the pie with ham, mustard and salad leaves.
