Lightly whisk eggs, milk or cream, salt and pepper in a bowl or jug and put aside.
Heat frying pan over medium heat. Add bacon and cook for about 4 minutes until slightly crisp. Add oil if pan is dry and add the onion. Cook for 2–3 minutes, stirring until onion softens.
Combine onion, bacon, tomatoes and basil in prepared dish, pour egg mixture over the top, sprinkle with cheese and cook in oven for 30 minutes. To check if it is ready, give it a wobble or touch the top in the centre of the dish. If not set, give it another 5 minutes and check again.

Try mixing 3 eggs with a splash of milk. Cook bacon and onion in a small frying pan then add remaining ingredients and top with eggs. Cook for 5 minutes on low heat, then to finish off the cooking, pop under the grill for another few minutes until set.
Make sure the handle on the frying pan is metal, and remember to use an oven mitt.
