These are something special for breakfast or lunch, and you can pack them with lots of veg (they are also great for using up leftover cooked veg) and any cheese you want. If you are a meat eater, slice up some cooked meat and pop it in, if you like blue cheese pop a chunk in the centre, dress them up with your favourite seeds or pack them with fresh herbs and garlic!
