Roasting your veggies is a great way to cook a big batch without compromising on the flavour. This Amazing Bacon Veggie Bake is a great way to change up your side dishes for dinner and fantastic when it comes to meal prepping! It will really jazz up your lunchboxes for the week! I also love to have it as a meal with a fried egg on top – everything is 10 times more delicious with a fried egg!!
