‘I promise it will blow your undies off it’s that delicious and that your kids will love it (look these are empty promises but stick with me),’ she wrote alongside a picture of the dish.

Her recipe calls for broccoli, spinach, garlic, onion, eggs and cheese as well as a splash of milk.

To begin she browns the garlic an onion before adding her green vegetables – cooking them in the pan until soft.

She then beats her eggs and says she doesn’t mind the type of bowl people choose to use to do this.

‘No one actually cares if it’s plastic or ceramic mate,’ she joked.

‘Whisk away with a splash of milk – a fork will do, if you want to feel fancy get the whisk out BUT remember you have to clean the thing and it ain’t fun.’
