A lip smacking variation on the traditional South African legendary milk tart. Ouma Hester has shared this recipe countless times. The Dutch origins of the Melktert recipe can be traced back to the sixteenth century. The recipe is a real winner. It is enjoyed with coffee or tea, or as a desert, and very easy to prepare.

A simple frittata gets big flavour thanks to merguez sausage. Add almost any veg you have to hand - great options are sliced red capsicum, shredded zucchini, spinach or a mixture.
