  • Preheat the oven to 180°C, Gas 4.
  • Heat the oil and add the bacon and cook for 10 minutes, then add the onions and cook for a further 5minutes.
  • Spread over the base of the flan, then sprinkle over the cooked cubed potatoes.
  • Sprinkle over the parsley then top with the cheese. 
  • Gently whisk the eggs with hot milk, nutmeg and season with salt and pepper.
  • Pour over the cheese but only half fill.
  • Place the flan on a baking tray then place in the oven, fill up the flan to the top now it's placed in the oven. This way, you do not get any spillage.
  • Bake for 25-30 minutes do not soufflé.
  • I like to serve my quiche with a crisp, dressed green salad.
