These are brilliant and so easy to make – I just made a bunch for new year’s to have with drinks.  You could easily add different flavours to your liking (chilli & sweetcorn, feta and roast pumpkin, just for example).

You can store them in the fridge for a few days for lunches too.

Replace baking paper on tray and place 12 tortillas onto tray.  Spoon zucchini bacon mixture into tortillas, sprinkle over parmesan and bake for 20 minutes, or until cases are light golden and filling has puffed up, is golden and cooked through.

Serve warm, at room temperature or after chilling in the fridge.

  1. These kinds of bites are dangerous…because they are MOORISH! Also love how versatile these recipes are, you can use what you have and come up with different combinations. I have missed your blog and beautiful pictures in recent times Emma.

    1. Thanks Jem 🙂 🙂 ours didn’t last long, they were great with drinks! And thanks for your kind words too ♥

  2. I’ve never seen Stand ‘n’ Stuff tortillas, but they look very useful! And these are truly adorable mini quiches. Love the combo of courgette and bacon, too. Yum. Happy new year, Emma!
