Video: 7 budget egg meals made with leftovers

What do you do with leftover bacon, roast dinners, puff pastry, carrots, potatoes? Almost anything when you combine them with eggs, the perfect ingredient to create main meals out of common leftovers that also reduce food waste.

At our #ShortcutEggsperts Hangout on Air held during British Egg Week, a group of food-loving bloggers shared their inspired dishes, featuring fried rice, a tart, an omelette, jacket potatoes and quiches.

The G+ hangout was sponsored by British Lion Eggs, familiar to shoppers via the red Lion stamp. You find it on egg boxes and shells and it means that your eggs are British and produced to the highest standards of food safety. Get more recipes and inspiration at, including leftovers and budget meals.

    Some great ideas here. Just the other day I couldn’t decide what to have for lunch, so in the end I decided on a roast veg and cheese omelette (yum yum!)
