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 conversation 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 conversation 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.
