Crustless Leek, Bacon & Cheese Quiche

Tried a leek quiche at a friends house, and even though my partner doesn't like leeks, he like that one. This is my version as I didn't want to ask for the recipe, but I reckon this one beats it hands down anyway :) Also, had to remove crust as doing a carb-reduced diet.

I made this recipe up as mini quiches in a muffin tin (made 12 regular muffin size quiches) and took it to a brunch with friends, hoping to bring some back home. No such luck! They all went and were thoroughly enjoyed. I made half of them without bacon to cater to the vegetarians in the group, otherwise made as written, except I baked at a lower temp for half an hour since we went out for a bike ride after I put them in the oven. I thought I was going to get away with not exercising but my daughter made me go. They turned out nice and creamy but not browned on top so I gave them a quick blast under a hot grill just to brown the top. I have to say they looked very appetising and tasted great. Update 19/4/08: Made another batch with onion this time and served with my Loquat Chutney. Also froze some as I'm sure it will freeze well. I'll report back later.
