Method

  1. 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.
  2. 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.

Top marks, went down a treat as nibbles at a drink party. 5 stars.

This was delicious. Added a finely chopped onion to the frying pan and some extra cheese to the egg mixture. My young children loved it. Served it with french bread and a simple salad.

Made this as I dropped the pastry case I was making for a regular quiche! Added half cream, half milk, spring onions and extra cheese. Very impressed, went a lot further than a normal quiche. Will definitely make again with different fillings.

So quick and simple, without the hassle of the pastry making. I also added lightly sauteed mushrooms and spring onions. Will become a regular I'm sure.

This had puffed up like a soufflé when I took it out of the oven! We enjoyed it but prefer frittatas/tortillas with potato so I won't be making it again.

I first fried off some bacon lardons with chopped onion and added chopped mushrooms. I mixed the cheeses - goats cheese melted and Spanish manchego (as we live in Spain) a bit more than 50g. I mixed 100g of skimmed milk with 100g of single cream and also added some dried parsley and italian herbs. Baked for 40 mins. Lovely!!

Delicious! I had this with a salad which was great and with baked beans the next day which was even better.

I used about 50ml less milk and about 100g more cheese, I also added some mushrooms. I cooked it in a ceramic ovenproof dish as I had no backing parchment and it turned out fab, really thick and dense it is filling and tasty. It tastes like quiche lorraine without the pastry. I needed to turn the oven down a little as the top was browning to early, saying that it looked great and was truly delicious. Will definitely make this again.

I was a bit disappointed with this but I suspect it may be my own fault for deviating from the recipe: I used onions rather than bacon to make a vegetarian fritatta and, despite cooking the onions first, the result was rather watery and refused to hold together. I also second what suestockytop says about this tasting more like scrambled eggs than quiche, which I don't think was my fault!

This sounded really lovely & like other people, I'm not a fan of the pastry in quiches. However, I was disappointed with the result as the taste & texture resembled scrambled egg or omelette rather than a quiche filling. I might try this again using creme fraiche rather than milk to obtain that creamy quiche taste.

Brilliant and so versatile. Like Fiona I'm not overly keen on pastry, and as such this has re-vitalised my interest in this sort of thing - fab.

This is fab!!! I only had four eggs so halved recipe and put in a smaller tin - came out really well (still needed the same cooking time). Took on holiday with us, travelled well and can easily add different fillings. I love quiche but am not fussed about the pastry - holds together well without it. Best to use baking parchment rather than greaseproof paper. Def one of those will be making again and again!!!

Really good and unusual way to serve eggs.

Very lovely! Had a bit of diffs with the greaseproof paper though - it didn't want to part company with the food!

This was delicious, especially adding in the juice from frying the bacon. I found it was best freshly cooked.

Just made it and it worked fine!
I added some spring onions to the bacon .
It was exactly like the filling in a quiche without the heavy pastry.
i'd imagine it would work with al lkinds of fillings so I'll give it a go.

I also hate pastry so never use a traditional recipe.

I have adapted this slightly by using Cottage cheese instead of the milk. Really scrummy and by using reduced fat cheese on top, cuts the fat levels down as well! What a winner.

I love quiche its one of my favourite things. I never eat the pastry just the yummy filling, so this is excellent. Cant wait to make it.
