Dinner Loaf

Dinner Loaf
Have a fussy eater on your hands? This easy savory loaf is ultra cheesy and tastes great! The best part? It has a complete healthy meal hiding inside.

Wholegrain pasta, mixed vegetables and eggs are hiding beneath the cheesy goodness - that's a solid meal right there.

This loaf is amazing served warm with a bit of butter, as well as cold straight from the fridge.

You can also wrap slices individually and store in the freezer for an easy toddler breakfast, lunch, dinner or snack.

This one is perfect for lunch boxes too! 

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup wholegrain pasta spirals (uncooked)
  • 1 1/2 cups frozen mixed veg (fresh works fine as well, but cooking time may vary)
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 cup self raising flour
  • 1 1/2 cups grated cheddar cheese
  • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese

Method

Cook pasta in boiling water according to packet directions.

When there's about 6 minutes cooking time left, add frozen mixed vegetables to the water.

Return to boil and continue cooking until pasta and vegetables are tender.

Strain water out and allow pasta and vegetables to cool a little.

Preheat oven to 220 C (430 F) and line a loaf tin with baking paper.

Add pasta, vegetables, eggs, and 1 cup of grated cheddar cheese to a food processor or blender.

Blend until smooth.

Pour into a mixing bowl.

Add flour and mix until well combined.

Pour dough into prepared loaf tin and use a spoon or spatula to spread it out evenly.

Sprinkle the remaining 1/2 cup of cheddar cheese over the top, followed by the Parmesan cheese.

Bake for approximately 22 minutes, or until crisp and golden on top.

Remove from tin and allow to cool for 5-10 minutes before cutting.

Store in the fridge for up to 3 days, or freeze in a freezer safe bag or container.

Hi, what is self raising flour?

Hello Liliana, Self-rising flour is a combination of all-purpose flour, baking powder, and salt. The blend is typically comprised of 1 cup of all-purpose flour plus 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder and 1/4 teaspoon fine salt. You can mix the ingredients yourself or you can buy it pre-combined as self-raising flour.
