  • Cooking oil spray
  • 2 onions, finely chopped
  • 125g bacon, chopped
  • 8 eggs
  • 300ml single cream
  • 2 tbs fresh chives, finely chopped
  • 1 cup grated cheddar cheese
  • salt & pepper to taste
  • 2 tomators, sliced thinly
  • Extra chives finely chopped for garnish


    1. Spray a shallow round ovenproof flan dish (aprox 25cm or 6-cup capacity) with oil. Pre-heat oven to 180C or moderate temperature.
    2. Spray a non-stick frying pan with oil and add the onions and bacon. Cook, stirring until the onions are soft and transparent. Remove the mixture from the pan and spread it over the base of the prepared flan dish.
    3. Place eggs, cream, chives and cheese in a large bowl and whisk until all ingredients are combined. Season with salt and pepper to taste and pour over the onion mixture in the flan dish. Arrange the tomato slices over the top.
    4. Bake 40mins or until it is just set and golden.
    5. Cool for 5mins before garnishing with extra chives and serve. Also good to serve cold.

Thank you for this recipe. Saved me when we had unexpected guests, served with green salad in the garden. Result! Has no cream so winged it with some philly. Delicious Low carb so helps diabetes management too.

Just a doddle to do, great recipe! I increased the amount of bacon and also added goat's cheese and dropped a couple of handfuls of cherry tomatoes into it instead of the slices. I forgot to put the cream in before pouring into the dish so had to pour it all out including the onion mixture so it was all mixed in together and still held together really well. Will try it properly next time though!

Delicious! Didn't bother with the tomatoes, but a lovely quick, easy dish. Thank you.

This is a very flexible recipe. I used spring onions, finely chopped broccoli and kale for my filling, and cream cheese instead of single cream. It was delicious. I think as long as the filling isn't too wet, pretty much any veg would work. I'll definitely make this again.

Made this quiche last night. No pastry so less calories, had no cream but used 2 tblsps mayonnaise instead and it worked! Also, cooked and chopped up chipolata sausages in it with bacon, which made it even more tasty. Last comment about liquid excess, this happened to me too but I cooked it an extra 10 - 15 minutes longer until really set. Really filling too for slimmers like me, having leftover half tonight for tea cold with salad.

How did you stop all the liquid from running straight out the bottom of the pie dish?

This is delicious! I changed the cream for milk, added mushrooms and always use smoked bacon. The only thing wrong with this dish, is that it could do with making twice as much! Keeping my hubby out of it is impossible. I love it cold too. Thanks Linda.

I used a silicone sandwich ‘tin’ as used with sponges. Allowed it to cool a little and the flipped it out. Great way to serve it.
