Karen has a health and sports background, working as a massage therapist before having her children. Karen met her kiwi husband in her home country of the UK. The arrival of her two wonderful girls developed her interest in looking at food and how we store it. She wanted to ensure that where possible she could avoid having a huge impact on the earth and steer away using disposable products.

Karen enthusiastically tested recipes for the first Munch Cookbook Munch Cookbook for Baby and Families, many of which have remained firm family favourites. She  is excited to be involved with Munch again after moving from her then adopted home of Wellington in New Zealand to Melbourne.

Serves: 12
  • 3-4 rashers of bacon

  1. Pre-heat oven to 180 C.
  2. Line the MunchNZ Baby Food Tray pods with chopped bacon and cook for approximately 15 minutes.
  3. Remove the hot tray and carefully add chopped left over veges, or you could even add pieces of smoked salmon, cheese, cooked meat, anything that takes your fancy really, to the bacon lined pods.
  4. Whisk between 4-6 eggs, this will depend on how full the pods already are, you could actually crack a whole egg into each one pod as an alternative.
  5. Slowly pour the egg mixture into the pods, stopping about 2 cm from the top as the egg will expand.
  6. Return tray to the oven for around 15 minutes or until you can see the egg has set.
