  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.

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.
