  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.

Made this a couple of times now. It's simple to serve when friends and family call and we sit out in the garden. Everyone enjoys this and you can add various other ingredients such as slices of potato, cooked onion, mushrooms. I am always generous with the cheese as we love this.

I stuck to the recipe, quick and easy and very popular as a main meal with salad, and as snacks and light bites. Good post illness recovery food for my frail 90 yr old relative, (easy to eat and tasty). Also as a post exercise protein boost for my son. This will be a permanent addition to keep in the fridge.

I used half the milk and replaced with creme fraiche. I also almost doubled the cheese.

Great recipe! I made it for a picnic and it was very popular. I added 25g sundried tomatoes (from a jar), chopped into small pieces and kept everything else the same. It cooked perfectly in 35 minutes. I left it to cool in the pan overnight before cutting it up. Yum.

So quick & easy. I've made this numerous times instead of a quiche. Always goes down well.

Made this the other day with Onions, cooled sliced waxy potatoes, cheese, fresh tomatoes (drained in a sieve to remove water). Turned out lovely although I did tweek the ingredients slightly. I used to make frittatas a while back and forgot how nice they were. The reason it goes like scrambled egg is because the ingredients are the same as those you would use to make scrambled egg. Needs a lot less liquid. I turn it out onto a board after its been out the oven a few minutes, then cut it into portion sizes and when serving I present it with the nice side (golden & crispy) facing up. Served with a lovely salad and some dressing it can steal the show!!! Feta with cooked red onion, olives & sundried tomatoes served cold makes a great summer/ pick-nick/ lunch option.

Used up some leftovers for this : cooked ham, onion and red pepper which I fried altogether. Instead of all the milk in recipe used half plus Lidls own soft garlic cheese. Topped off with grated cheese ( didnt measure this! ) and sliced tomatoes. Took a bit longer to cook, a little scrambled eggy but nonetheless a lovely light lunch.!

Great recipe. Lovely, light and fluffy texture. I added some fried onions, and, as others have said, it was a little watery. It took longer to cook than stated also - around 40 - 45 minutes in all. Perhaps because I used a ceramic dish and not a tin? Anyway, will be making again!

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