Heat oven to 180C/160C fan/gas 4.
If you’re using bacon, put it into a large
frying pan and cook over a gentle-medium
heat. Stir occasionally until
golden and beginning to crisp up.
Line a roasting tin, about 20 x 28cm,
with baking parchment – just scrunch it
roughly at the corners. Whisk together
the eggs and milk in a large jug or bowl,
then stir in the bacon or ham, plus any
fat from the pan, the cheddar and some
seasoning. Pour into the tin, scatter with
a bit of extra grated cheese, if you like,
and bake for 30-35 mins until golden and
set. Carry to your picnic in its tin and eat
hot, warm or cold, with bread, cherry
tomatoes and a few salad leaves.
