Watch: Jeremy Wells goes on the hunt for the Kiwi classic Frying Saucer 'superfood'

After a recent investigation into the origin of the chop suey pattie, Seven Sharp is now looking into what happened to the Frying Saucer.

Jeremy Wells remembers the culinary delight fondly, calling it the superfood of the 70s and 80s.

"It was a perfectly balanced meal in one pattie, meat, vegetables and potato enjoyed by our family in front of the television on a Sunday night watching It's A Dog Show.

"But then in 1990 all of sudden the Frying Saucer disappeared from supermarket shelves," the Seven Sharp co-host said.

Wells met a man who is on a mission to bring the Frying Saucer back to Kiwi supermarkets.
