# 287 Quick savoury traybake

With the half-term over it's back to the normal routine of packed lunches, homework projects, washing and drying of school uniforms, etc.

This savoury traybake is perfect for picnics and packed lunches because it's easy to eat (and make) and tastes good. I made the one shown on the photo with slices of parma ham and bacon, you can also use sliced chorizo, ham, sausages, gammon or any leftover cooked chicken.

Quick savoury traybake

150g white plain flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
2 eggs
100ml vegetable oil
100ml milk
Pinch of salt
3 slices of Parma ham
2 slices of precooked thick bacon

In a bowl mix the flour and the baking powder. Add all the other ingredients and mix just until they're combined.

Line a tray (I used a brownies tray which measures approx. 27x17cm) with baking parchment . Pour half of the mixture on to the tray and spread it with a spatula so it covers the bottom of the tray. Cut the meats into small pieces and distribute them on top of the batter.

Pour the remaining mixture on top and spread so it covers most of the meats. Bake in a preheated oven at 180 ÂșC/Gas Mark 5 for about 30 minutes or until the top is golden brown.

Allow to cool for 10 minutes or so before removing from the tray to cool completely on a wire rack.



Edited to add:  Thanks to Chrissie who spotted the mistake in the amounts of milk and vegetable oil, they should read 100ml each instead of 1ml.
