These baked eggs are nutritious, tasty and they’re the perfect way to treat your mum this Mother’s Day! It’s comforting, while still being light and has a burst of flavour from the bacon, olives and basil. Feel free to use whatever greens you have in the fridge or go the extra mile and serve with some toasted fresh bread crumbs!
