Method

  1. Preheat the oven to 170ºC/190ºC Fan/gas mark 5. Oil and base line a 20cm/8in round tin - don't use a loose-based tin or the egg will pour out the base. Place on a baking sheet.
  2. Heat 30ml/2 tbsp of the oil in a large frying pan, add the mushrooms and sauté over a high heat for 5-6 mins or until they begin to brown. Stir in the leeks and sauté for a further 2-3 mins or until tender. Remove from the heat, add the rocket, tomatoes, feta and plenty of ground black pepper. Spoon into the prepared tin.
  3. Beat the eggs with a little seasoning then pour over the mushroom mix in the tin. Scatter over the grated cheese and bake for 25-30 mins or until the egg has set and the top is golden. Leave to cool in the tin for 5 mins, before removing from the tin and serving in wedges with a little more rocket.
Gino D’Acampo is a much-loved, cheeky TV chef who often appears on ITV’s popular daytime chat show This Morning. Born into a large family in Napoli, Italy, Gino’s been working in kitchens since he was young and fell in love with the industry age 11 when he walked into his grandfather’s restaurant. Gino’s Italian heritage has a huge influence on his recipes. From a classic margherita pizza to a four-cheese macaroni cheese with peas, we’re sure to have a Gino D’Acampo recipe your whole family will love! With three children of his own it is perhaps no surprise that so many of Gino’s recipes are perfect for the hustle and bustle of a busy home. As well as regularly appearing on This Morning to share his culinary skills and the odd cheeky joke or two, Gino has also had several TV shows of his own including most recently Gino’s Italian Coastal Escape which aired in November 2018 on ITV. He also won over much of the nation back in 2009 when he was crowned winner of I’m A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here. Gino has several best-selling cookbooks out including Gino’s Pasta, Home Baking and Gino’s Italian Escape. At the heart of all of his recipes is the belief that good ingredients can speak for themselves. On his website Gino explains: ‘My grandfather said that a good recipe doesn’t need lots and lots of ingredients because if the ingredients are top quality and full of flavour, why would you want to cover up or change their taste
