A simple base recipe for a quick and easy lunch - cook ahead on the weekend to make preparing lunches a breeze. Eat hot or cold.
Preheat oven to 180C / 356F and grease a casserole dish or baking pan. Usually deeper is better for me, so I like using a dish that is about 10cm x 15cm.
Fry off the bacon until brown, it doesn’t need to get crispy as it goes in the mixture.
Whisk eggs, cream, salt and pepper. If you are using other spices, add them to this mix.
Stir in the cooked bacon and pour into your prepared baking dish.
Add any additional mix ins to the baking dish and distribute evenly.
Add half of the grated cheese into the mixture and stir to distribute, then sprinkle the remaining cheese on top.
Bake for 40 - 45 minutes until golden brown and set in the centre. Let it cool in the dish and then cut into 6 squares. Wrap in foil to freeze, grab out the night before and lunch is ready to go! Great reheated for lunch or cold.
