Notes

Recipe Notes and Tips
Cook the bacon - the bacon must be cooked first, as the quiches are only baked for a short period of time, which is not long enough to cook the bacon.
Substitute ham for bacon - you can use ham instead o bacon and this would save you some preparation time as well! I would recommend a thick sliced ham, rather than shaved, if possible.
Don't want to use cream? - if you don't have cream, or don't want to use it, you can replace it with full cream milk, or leave it out, however the texture of the filling will be slightly different.
Storing & freezing - leftover Cheesy Egg and Bacon Tortilla Quiches can be stored in the fridge for up to 3 days or frozen in an airtight container for up to 3 months. Defrost in the fridge and reheat before consuming.
